  • The Opportunity

    Globoforce is scaling up its’ infrastructure. We are introducing Docker in our tech stack starting with our multiple development environments. At the same time we are migrating our complete infrastructure to AWS.   Most Docker roles focus on maintenance or enhancement of a pre-existing stack,  limiting the room to change or improve.  Our role is totally different.  This a strategically significant multiyear project for Globoforce. This role is a brilliant opportunity to be deeply involved in a greenfield Docker adoption project, from the very beginning.


    You will leverage your deep Docker expertise to guide and shape the technical direction of the new project. You’ll be involved in all aspects, from helping us define and implement Docker best practices, to evaluating different approaches, to hands in implementation, and planning continuous improvements.


    If you want true technical influence, lots of cutting edge technology, super tech savvy colleagues, this is the job for you.

    Here's just some of what you will be doing:

    • Work in our DevOps team, being involved in all phases of the Docker adoption including analysis of current situation and ways to implement, establishing best practice and implementation guidelines.
    • Analyze current architecture and make architectural changes as needed.
    • Interact with our Architecture, Development, DBA and Infrastructure teams to help us define interoperability across systems and processes.
    • Work with a cross functional agile deployment team to implement our migration plan.
