Are you passionate about transforming manual work into automated flows? Do you find it easy to zoom out, see the big picture and motivate others? Do you speak Python and get a tingling feeling when the Ansible playbook ends in success? Then you would feel at home at Miradot. We work as a team of specialists to redefine the way our clients consume and interact with their IT-infrastructure.
With the purpose to drive people and technology to be better together, we think that innovation is crucial; whether we are designing a new datacenter or integrating a self-service portal with the cloud. We believe that in order to achieve the most efficient, innovative and happy teams, diversity is key. Combining different personalities, experiences, backgrounds and skills allow us to build something larger than we could ever do individually. A proud and successful team comes from giving each team member the freedom and responsibility to own your time.
About the job
As an automation architect you will have a leading technical role in an agile team of experts with completing skills to drive our customers’ digital transformation journey. By that we mean that we assist our customers in developing automation, but also by providing a good structure or way of working for doing so, which is key to make sure the customer is able to use and maintain it. While still being able to work hands-on in the sprints, you will also have an important role in leading our customers’ transformation. This means being part of our customers’ architecture advisory board, which is a strategic forum where you identify and prioritize automation use cases, provide general strategic input and ensure that the overarching design and its components support automation.
From a technical perspective, working as an architect in the sprints means that you will be leading the team from a technical standpoint. You will be responsible for ensuring that the development meets the customer’s requirements and expectations. At Miradot we all get our hands dirty from time to time, so count on a variety of hands-on tasks ranging from developing Ansible modules, hacking CI/CD pipelines, designing an integration, data model, or setting up a clever testing strategy. The projects you will work on usually combine code from our own neat repository with custom development and addons.
We aim to reuse as much as possible of what we build, so we are also developing an automation framework based on well-known open source tools like AWX, Ansible and Nautobot. Whenever you have some spare time, it’s encouraged to develop new features to the framework or work on a personal project where you explore new technologies.
It’s more important where you’re going than where you’re at. You are a fast-learning high-performer that thrives when being challenged and reaching just beyond your perceived limits. As a lead role in a team of specialists in large projects, you are proactive, structured and analytic. As an architect, you are comfortable in challenging thoughts and ideas in a constructive manner. Being part of the Miradot team means that you; help and ask for help, speak and listen and that you trust and are trusted. In practice, this means that we always help and learn from each other, value opinions and that we manage our own time. As Steve Jobs simply put it - “It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and tell them what to do. We hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.”
As a trusted advisor for our customers, you have experience from similar strategic roles and are used to speaking with both technical roles and decision makers. You have experience from requirements gathering, design development and documentation. Technically you are familiar with tools like Ansible, Terraform, Git or AWX. You are not a fully fledged developer, but scripting in Python or a similar language is no biggie. By heart you choose Open Source projects such as Netbox, Kubernetes and Camunda - but also realize its limitations and see the value and potential in proprietary solutions.
Companies are constantly adapting, evolving and transforming to meet the new market demands, expectations and realities. Since 2015, Miradot has helped companies to increase the speed at which they can adopt new technologies and thus adapt to an increasingly disruptive world. The underlying machinery is digital transformation.
Miradot is to be the leading partner in digital transformation with the highest competence in automation, cloud connectivity, data centers and networks. With determination, we explore new technologies with potential and impact, with which we transform companies and authorities by inspiring, visioning, implementing and automating.
