Solutions Engineer

UK/Europe

We guide and support enterprises in their adoption and production use of Kubernetes. Our deep understanding and real-world experience in a variety of environments (cloud and on-premises), enables us to accelerate customer projects and provide them with confidence in their operations.

Our Solution Engineers architect, design and implement Kubernetes-based integrations. They work directly with customers, onsite and remote, and are as comfortable in front of a whiteboard explaining concepts to a customer as at a Linux terminal implementing highly-automated and scripted solutions. They are expected to take part in delivering Kubernetes training to a wide variety of audiences, educating other engineers in the possibilities they can unlock with Kubernetes. They understand how to integrate and make the most of Kubernetes and related cloud-native technology. They have a passion for pushing boundaries, sometimes with novel and experimental ideas, are self-started and proactive.
