DevOps Consultant – Microsoft Focus

Functie

We believe that every company benefits from business agility in order to excel in the market.
We achieve this by optimizing the way ideas are transformed into business value in a pragmatic way.
We do this by providing multi-disciplinary teams supporting and improving your people, processes and tool ecosystems.

 

Our DevOps/ALM team is a strategic part of our Software Delivery Enablement Services, an offering that groups al competences with regards to methodology, tool ecosystems and coaching. With this in mind, we have several strategical partnerships with companies such as Microsoft, Atlassian, Microfocus, Dynatrace, Tasktop and Jetbrains.

Over the years, (Biz)DevOps has become a crucial key area where we:

  • Help our customers to use modern and up-to-date tooling ecosystems and automation. If needed we can even take these ecosystems under our management where we become a managed service provider.
  • Help our customers, but also teams within Realdolmen to reach a higher software delivery maturity level

The Realdolmen DevOps/ALM team helps customers build the right software the right way by introducing people, processes & tools that lead to reduced cost, higher productivity, transparency, quality and last but not least customer delight. We are connected through a unique vision combining end-to-end DevOps, single source capabilities and a strong team, making us a preferred and respected DevOps partner in Belgium!

 

As a DevOps / ALM Consultant, you are responsible for the design, the installation and configuration of Devops ecosystems. Your primary focus will be in the Microsoft Stack (TFS, Azure DevOps Server, …), but where needed this stack will be complemented with tools that cover additional needs of customers (E.g. SonarQube, Nexus, Docker, Kubernetes, …). You will be collaborating closely with project leaders, development teams and operational profiles to understand their demands and ambitions and to design solutions that improve the customer’s way of working. Examples can be continuous integration, continuous delivery, code quality, test automation, containerization …

Do you have a broad interest in DevOps, analysis, development, testing, build and release automation, agile, … and a passion to continuously improve and automate where possible (and sensible), then you are the DevOps consultant that we are looking for!
