Have you automated your home completely, are trying out a new Linux distro every week or are always working on a Raspberry Pi project? Do you like implementing cutting-edge technologies? Is your day complete after fixing a build pipeline or E2E test and being your colleagues’ hero for it? Become one of TOPdesk’s Developer Experience / Platform Engineers!
Well, you’re going to make the lives of your fellow developers easier! You select and introduce new tools and teach developers how to work with them. You interpret the results and implement new workflows in development teams, together with your teammates. Where the focus for developers normally lies in creating beautiful, functional and, above all, user-friendly software for customers, you focus on the step before that.
You support programmers by scripting and configuring all kinds of tools. Which tools are we talking about? That’s totally up to you. You talk and do research in collaboration with the fifteen different development teams, operations and IT. You dive into the bottlenecks and pain points those groups experience. With all that information you go into the world and look for solutions. In addition, you are aware of the latest advancements in development and eager to introduce new tools and processes to colleagues.
And that’s far from it! You will also be maintaining and updating the tools and infrastructure that are implemented by the team. Lastly, you provide excellent support to other developers who have issues or ask questions regarding these tools.
You will join the Platform Layer and become part of the Developer Experience team. This team currently consists of five other Development Experience / Platform Engineers and team members in Delft, Tilburg, Kaiserslautern, Copenhagen and Budapest. Your team is in constant contact with TOPdesk’s fifteen development teams, the operations team and IT to provide an excellent developer experience.
