As DevOps Architect you will be accountable for the operation and evolution of our DevOps platform and toolchain running clients Global Identity & Access Management Platform.

Curate resilient CI/CD pipelines to allow our developers to build and deploy features quickly and reliably and educate developers across the company and provide them with the tools to use the platform autonomously and safely (self-serve infrastructure).
