Working as a DevOps Engineer is a really interesting and challenging option.

* acting as a DevOps evangelist
* working with microservices and PaaS solutions
Apart from that, we try to be up to date with the market. We constantly research new technologies, implement proof of concepts, and have a lot of fun doing that!
