I am a member of the DevOps Formula 1 crew in an IT company in Antwerp. There are a lot of skills required to win a Formula 1 race: a good pilot, a strong team of engineers who build the engine, a software team to manage the engine, a pit crew, specialists who continuously monitor parameters during the race, etc. If all these team members only do their own thing, you will never drive a successful race.
Communication between team members within the team and communication between the different teams are crucial components to reach the finish line first.
DevOps is exactly the same: each team within IT communicates clearly with each other and works well together so that projects get done faster and better. As senior DevOps engineer, I am the one that monitors the overall performance and suggests improvements where needed.
You’re eager to learn new tools and technologies and you love to share your knowledge with the team.
You have excellent communication skills and you clearly formulate your thoughts. Experience with agile methodologies such as Scrum is a plus. You have a large dose of humour and you’re not afraid of some self-reflection.
