DevOps Engineer

Chemnitz − Dresden

Staffbase is an enterprise SaaS platform that helps HR and Communication leaders to transform their organizations into places where people feel connected and proud to come to work. Staffbase is the first employee experience platform to let employers and employees connect authentically, right through their mobile phone.

Headquartered in Chemnitz, Germany, Staffbase is a global company with  offices in Dresden, Cologne, Amsterdam, New York and London! Our international team of more than 200 happy employees from 20+ nationalities serve a rapidly expanding portfolio of customers who want to revolutionize  the employee experience. Founded 5 years ago, we have strong-growing revenue, and our customers love us.

The Role

Staffbase provides a world-leading product for connecting employees to their employers. Still, our backlog is full of awesome features that we would love to do all at once while the market we’re in growing rapidly as well, just like the number of international competitors. We need to iterate quickly, in an agile manner and be smart about our decisions to keep producing the highest output possible for our customers. To achieve that, we implemented a DevOps mindset in our culture and embrace Continuous Integration as well as Delivery, work in small autonomous and empowered teams taking ownership of their work and leverage state-of-the-art technology.

For enabling this rapid pace of innovation, we need to have a reliable platform that we build upon GitLab, Selenium, Jenkins, Kubernetes and Docker. We value testing of all kinds of sorts as well as experimenting and observing, always seeking faster feedback. We measure our success in the number of releases we do – to deliver value to our customers – and aim for a zero bug policy. If you would love to participate in building and improving this platform, allowing our innovative software to grow and strive for its potential while you yourself do the same, then we would love to hear from you.

The Team

Working at Staffbase, fortunately, comes with working in a team of superb engineers and software craftsmen. Everyone is humble and always striving for improvement. “No bullshit” belongs to our core values just as much as the “Hunger for Growth”. For that, we do not only have a generous personal development budget for visiting our New York office, conferences or doing courses, but also conduct meet-ups, open-minded post mortems and code dojos on a regular basis. As we value mentoring and growing collectively, we share a common vision and goals as well as a passion for all things software. After that, there’s also time for some beer, a bit of laser tag or an office LAN party.
