We are looking for a Kubernetes Platform Architect


  • You are responsible for designing our Kubernetes-as-a-Service platform. But of course, you are not alone. We already have multiple cross-functional teams working on different parts of the platform and all team members are engaged in the product process.

  • You work closely with one team and write user stories.

  • You decide with the Product Owners what will be developed and when, and make strategic product decisions.

  • You communicate a clear vision and help the team to prioritize.

  • You participate in all development events (Daily StandUp, Planning, Retrospective, Reviews).

  • You are also motivated by proactive stakeholder management (customer, PO’s, cross-functional Dev Teams, other internal departments) and gather requirements, manage expectations and set priorities.


  • You have at least 5 years of work experience in a tech-driven environment and you know stuff about enterprise software, cloud, open-source and distributed systems. You can tell us about your professional experience with Kubernetes and infrastructure.

  • You find the right tone for all stakeholders. Especially with our cross-functional engineering teams, you are available and engaged. (We are currently building a product where we put customer requirements into product requirements and stories which work for a multitude of customers).

  • You can deal with being empowered to make decisions.

  • You understand the market, product, business, and any constraints involved.

  • You have an understanding of how our product is developed and delivered, you know a lot about agile methodologies but you don’t need to do everything according to the guide book.

  • You fight for good UX as this is a huge part of our product.

  • You are happy to work in a fast-changing environment and adapt the way you work according to the current status of the company. We are operating in the evolving container ecosystem; the whole market is highly volatile.

  • Not a must-have but a major plus: You are able to start a cluster on one of our test installations and can install external-DNS there, trying out a few settings as well as evaluating it for the roadmap story.

  • Having worked with Kubernetes before is mandatory

  • You have excellent English skills (our company language is English)

  • We (and our customers) are currently mostly distributed around Europe (around UTC), thus, your main timezone is somewhere between -2UTC to +2UTC to ensure better communication.
