Our cloud environment is heterogeneous, and we use a palette of languages as mentioned and tools, such as Git, Crossplane and FluxCD.

– As a cloud developer, you will drive the adoption of cloud best practices in DFDS by developing our platform, coaching and training colleagues and helping to steer a pragmatic path forward through new, valuable technologies and hyperbole.

DFDS is heavily accelerating our cloud journey for existing IT infrastructure, in a push to “left shift” responsibilities onto the respective development teams using Kubernetes and Cloud Native Foundation eco-system projects as our tooling of choice.

As our Cloud Developer, you will join our platform group. The purpose of the group is to spread best practices on software development and making it easier, faster and safer for all of DFDS’ developers to use Cloud features.

We see the platform as the tool that lessens the load for everybody else.

Developers in the platform group works alongside our expert Site Reliability Engineers. Some of the typical tasks you will be doing is building value-adding features into the core platform, design and run educational workshops and co-create new platform features alongside the SREs and other teams in DFDS.

There is also some bad stuff. DFDS is a hundred-and-fifties-something and while the IT is surprisingly not that old, there is the occasional nineties-era homegrown ball of mud terrorizing the hallways. You won’t be asked to work on it, but you might be asked desperate questions on ideas for strangulating it.

Also, as the platform team, there are internal users who know where you sit. Your finest purpose is to help them… preferably to help themselves next time.

As a key part of our strategy, DFDS’ Technology & Innovation teams are instrumental in providing efficient ferry and road transport services in Europe. Technology & Innovation builds solutions that creates customer experiences and enhances the customer journey. We take pride in being in close collaboration with the stakeholders in order to reach our goals. Our belief system is based on agile principles and good craftsmanship. We respond quickly to the change that is constantly disrupting and challenging the way we work. Technology & Innovation is counts +300 people spread over multiple locations within Europe,
