In a nutshell 

You will be optimising our AWS cloud environment. Together with the engineers in your team you keep our systems up-to-date, secure, and fast, to ensure Knab is in control. Analyzing and adequately following up on incidents and problems will be part of your job. You analyze problems and help determine a solution (or path). Finding and implementing the best solutions (sometimes in consultation with suppliers) will be part of your responsibilities. Of course, you will be working on optimizing our Continuous Delivery. Within the platform team the main focus will be on developing Knab's cloud capability that is being utilized by the value streams.

The Team
The platform team consists of skilled cloud/devops engineers that is responsible for Knab's IT Cloud platform (AWS) and its development. You report to the IT Service Lead and will operate within the IT Functions and Foundations stream. The value streams contain multiple agile teams focussing on the same customer proposition and are responsible for the end product delivered to our customers.

At Knab we are organized alongside Valuestreams, consisting of multiple Scrum teams, operations departments and a support team. There are two Value Streams organized around our Customer Propositions: Daily Use and Financial Freedom. Next to the valuestreams there is also the supporting stream: IT Functions and Foundations. By organizing this way: we achieve more focus and a higher speed of delivery.
