You will be helping to develop the next generation of innovative geospatial products that support mission-critical operations for our global customer base.


  • You’ll join an international DevOps team as the first DevOps Engineer to work out of the Ghent office. This creates a unique opportunity to help shape our local processes and improve our ways of working.
  • You’ll be responsible for the infrastructure that supports our product portfolio and manage the pipelines to deploy these applications.
  • You’ll create Terraform (or similar IAC) modules that automate as much of the deployment as feasible, so we can rapidly deploy new releases to production or launch additional development environments.
  • You’ll play a critical role in protecting our production and development environments, by making sure the infrastructure is set up in a secure manner and by monitoring these environments for known vulnerabilities and applying security patches when required.
  • You’ll support the Engineering team in creating new software releases by integrating various tools and platforms into their development processes (e.g. SonarCloud, Snyk, CI/CD).
  • You’ll collaborate with Product Management and the rest of Engineering to design the right software architecture which maps seamlessly to a scalable infrastructure layer.
  • You’ll work in an Agile environment, where you have frequent meetings with co-workers throughout the development cycle.

Required Skills & Experience


You’ll be enthusiastic, with a strong technical background in general software engineering. Essential skills are:

  • Experience of working in a DevOps role.
  • Excellent knowledge of infrastructure as code (e.g. Terraform), containerization (e.g. Docker), and container orchestration (e.g. Kubernetes).
  • Experience with cloud infrastructure provider platforms (e.g. Amazon Web Services).
  • Experience setting up and maintaining pipelines (e.g. Jenkins, GitHub Actions).
  • Good verbal and written communication skills, able to present technical concepts to others in Engineering.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Fluent written and spoken English.


Ideally, you’ll have several of the following:

  • Knowledge of Java and/or Python (as much of our product stack is written in these languages).
  • Knowledge of TypeScript (Angular) and HTML design and development.
  • Experience with Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) or web mapping.
  • Experience working in an Agile environment.

Education & Experience

Degree from an accredited university in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field; or equivalent industry experience.
