GROWx is a young, but extremely fast-growing organization. This is especially true for our GROWxTech department, for which we need more people. This department deals with all technical matters around the farm:  robotization, sensoring, seeding, harvesting, climate control and software development. 

We are looking for an experienced AWS DevOps engineer responsible for maintaining and improving our current stack and designing & building infrastructure for new products.

  • Develop automation scripts for application deployments.
  • Work with the development team to deploy code artefacts & releases through development to production environments.
  • Build and maintain operational tools for application logging, application monitoring, and analysis of AWS infrastructure and systems.
  • Design and implement monitoring reports/dashboards to identify actionable metrics to improve production support, future architecture efforts, and identify security-related issues.
  • Be our AWS expert, keeping up to date with the latest services and features, advising team members on how they might be utilized, and keeping up a comprehensive understanding of the systems we have in place.
  • Always have security top of mind.
  • Reduce costs by making the infrastructure more efficient.
  • Ability to present and communicate the architecture in a visual form.

Qualifications

  • In-depth understanding and experience working with core AWS services: API Gateway, RDS, DyanmoDB, Lambda, S3, Cognito, CloudWatch, EC2, EventBridge, etc.
  • Experience with automated build pipelines using CI/CD tools such as AWS Codepipeline/Codedeploy/Codebuild, etc.
  • Experience with container management & orchestration utilizing AWS ECS and Fargate.

About GROWx: 

GROWx is founded in 2016 and acquired by its current owner in 2019. GROWx is an industrial food producer that continuously develops knowledge and technology to grow the cleanest and healthiest crops with the highest yield on a minimum surface area. The production plants remain the property of GROWx and the technology is made available to the customer “as a service”. If desired, a distribution partner can participate in a local plant per country or region. 

A vertical farm can be seen as vertically stacked cells with an indoor cultivation system, which is fully air-conditioned and equipped with LED lamps. By fully robotising the farm and using Artificial Intelligence, the nutrition and light for the crops are continuously optimized and further developed. For example, a crop can be “programmed” for maximum vitamin production or a (specific) strong taste. We produce nutrient-rich, affordable and tasty leafy vegetables, herbs and microgreens every day. All in a sustainable way. 

Starting date: in consultation 

Send a strong motivation with why this position & industry suits you. To apply please submit cover letters and resumes to: roos@growx.co
