Working as a DevOps Engineer at Vertafore, you won't have an average day. One day you might be working to automate infrastructure deployment, making sure that we can build database clusters with one command. The next day you might be hard at work investigating why production is suddenly much slower than normal. The day after you might be working with a team to make sure that they have a great build and release process.
You will get an amazing opportunity to work with and learn many cutting edge technologies and skills. DevOps plays many roles in the organization, and you'll be working on CI/CD processes, production support, infrastructure as code, and a multitude of other technologies.
If you have a passion for technology, are hungry to learn, and are looking for a creative, fun and friendly workplace where you get to develop software that will transform the insurance industry, we would love to get in touch with you.
