  • Opportunities to innovate by working on different technologies: legacy and cutting-edge?
  • The opportunity to demonstrate your scripting and programmer skills using innovative and challenging methods by automating our manual recurring tasks and eliminate waste?
  • Challenges? Belonging to an operational team, you will have to support the servers of our various customers, solve problems or implement changes. You will be part of a 7/24 rotational support.

Do you want to...

  • Share and improve your technical knowledge?
  • Communicate with confidence and see problems as learning opportunities?
  • Work as a team in priority? One for all, all for one?
  • Be creative and never let yourself overwhelm by what seems "impossible", because there is always a solution to any problem?


... Then you will easily find your place in the team and we are excited to know you!

  • Someone who has knowledge of automation and orchestration tools like Satellite, Ansible, Puppet and Code Management Tools (GIT) and sees them as a new ideology.
  • Someone who is very resourceful and who solves technical problems "eyes closed", who does not hesitate to share his knowledge or to ask for help when he feels cornered, his shoulders clinging to the wall.
  • An individual who is willing to go out of his way to satisfy his client or help his team.
  • Someone for whom Agile, Scrum, DevOps, Infrastructure as a code are not like "Klingon" Or it's because you are an expert in Klingon!
  • A individual with strong interpersonal, oral and written communication skills.
  • A person with a good sense of humor (Clearly an asset). This will allow your colleagues to play you tricks without fear!
  • Bilingualism (French and English)
