We are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join the SaaS Group in our Cork office.

As a DevOps Engineer, you will design, develop, build, and maintain the infrastructure of our applications. You will keep our systems healthy and operational which will require monitoring, scaling and optimizing the architecture and infrastructure of our SaaS products.
