Are you experienced with Linux, cloud infrastructure and containers. Are you up to the challenge of building and maintaining IT infrastructure for multiple clients? We’re looking for someone like you.

About Kumina

Kumina provides managed services for an interesting mix of clients in the Netherlands and abroad, since 2007. We stand behind the ideals of open source software, as a company. The last few years we’ve focused on container technology, using Docker and Kubernetes. These solutions are implemented on public cloud environments (Google Cloud, AWS), on bare metal, or on Kumina’s VM environments.

A selection of the tools we work with: Debian Linux, Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, Apache, Puppet, KVM, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Percona XtraDB, Logstash, ElasticSearch, Kibana, HAProxy and Git.

You and your colleagues will be responsible for continuity, availability, stability and optimization of our clients IT infrastructure. Our focus is providing high quality services and we value good relations and cooperation with our clients. This means pro-actively handling customer requests and problems, while keeping an eye out for new solutions and points of improvement with a mind to better serve our clients.

Besides maintaining current environments you will frequently build and migrate new environments for our clients, individually or in teams. You will also take part in maintaining, automating and optimizing our own environments and internal business processes. There may also be room for personal projects, within reason.
