Job description

Welcome to Dexter Energy! From our headquarters in Amsterdam, we are a progressive scale-up using cutting-edge AI technology to predict and optimize renewable energy generation. We're driven by our mission to make the power system greener and more affordable, altering the landscape of the energy market. We're passionate believers in the ability to make a marked difference in tackling climate change. Our proprietary software makes renewable energy sources more predictable and profitable, nudging fossil fuels off the grid, and accelerating the transition to sustainable energy.

Power up our team

The Engineering Department at Dexter Energy is where the magic happens. Our team of talented engineers works tirelessly to create AI software that predicts and optimizes renewable energy solutions.

As a DevOps Engineer, you will join our talented Engineering department, working in the Infrastructure team who ensure the seamless integration and delivery of our groundbreaking AI solutions, making the magic happen behind the scenes. You will be teaming up with Danny and Ricardo, DevOps Engineers, and Jan, our Engineering Manager.

It’s time to amp up your career

In the DevOps Engineer role you will take part in designing, building and maintaining the technical infrastructure that we require in order to allow our product teams to deliver value. Technical infrastructure includes our GCP resources, CI/CD setup, and security components.

You will design, build and maintain our DevOps infrastructure, and assist and guide our product teams on any DevOps-related topics. You’re doing this by advocating for SRE and DevOps best practices.

Your day-to-day work will be focused on Infrastructure-related tasks. You will have the opportunity to improve your core tech skills and work with cutting-edge technologies. Tackling ambitious projects by creating a clear plan for success that others can follow is also a part of your role.

You should thrive in a collaborative, entrepreneurial environment and be motivated to keep learning new things. You should care deeply about writing great software, following the latest best practices in terms of implementation details, documentation, and automated testing.

This role is watt you've been looking for!

  • You’ll be part of setting up the fundamentals for future growth. Together with your team, you’re setting the baseline for years and years of development to come

  • A healthy environment, where we put trust in our fellow Dexterians. With this trust comes flexibility to do your job how you see fit and in our setting, there’s plenty of room for your ideas and wishes

  • We’re also improving our “extras package” for Learning and Development, working from home equipment and so on

  • You will be surrounded by extremely smart people (Backend Engineer Joao really wanted this in)
