Job Description

We are Centrica! We’re so much more than an energy company. We’re a family of brands revolutionising a cleaner, greener future. Working here is #MoreThanACareer - we’re powered by purpose. Together we can make an impact that will truly change tomorrow. Whether you’re developing cutting-edge green tech, helping customers on the front line or simplifying operations behind the scenes.

Your work here isn’t just a job – it’s a mission. We all play a vital role in energising a greener, fairer future.

Centrica Energy is looking to expand our Cloud Platform team by adding a passionate and highly motivated Cloud Platform Engineer to our team in Antwerp

The team and the role

In the Cloud Platform team at CE, our goal is to support our cloud transformation journey by building a common, state-of-the-art, cloud-based compute and storage platform catered to the use-cases of our teams consisting of around 40+ developers and data scientists.

We put a strong emphasis on developer experience, building abstractions at the right level, to reduce the cognitive load on our users. We strive to make sure our developers can focus on their products instead of the complex nuances of e.g. Kubernetes or AWS.

As a member of the team, you can expect to be maintaining and further developing the platform, which may include:

  • Ensuring our infrastructure is running optimally and robustly

  • Making infrastructure and applications more observable

  • Automating tasks to eliminate toil

  • Building tools for developer productivity

  • Assisting and supporting developers with usage of the platform in general

  • Improving the security posture of the platform

The tech

We run on AWS and our stack consists of a mix of managed cloud services (e.g EKS, RDS, Cassandra, Kafka and open source software that is spread among several Kubernetes clusters.

We are big fans of building our infrastructure declaratively using Gitops and tools like Terraform and in the future ArgoCD. Our observability is powered by Prometheus and Datadog.

We also build and maintain different tools ourselves, facilitating various functions such as application delivery to our Kubernetes environments, continuous integration and others. Exploring our code, you will find a mix of Python, Go and various scripting languages. We like to use the right tool for the job.

What do we expect from you?

  • Your educational background is likely within Computer Science, and you have a passion for delivering high-quality software

  • You like the idea of Platform Engineering, and having a focus on developer enablement

  • You have solid experience with some part of our stack and practices, such as Kubernetes, GitOps and AWS

  • You like to communicate with skilled specialists with competencies that complement your own, and you appreciate close collaboration with internal customers

  • You are curious, driven and motivated by involving yourself in complicated challenges in a 24x7 environment consisting of a lot of exciting technologies and moving parts

  • You have excellent English written and verbal skills and you are not afraid to speak your mind

  • You want to raise the bar in security and compliance for our stack

  • You have a good knowledge of networking, routing and vpn

What do we offer?

If you can supply the willingness and the personal attitude, we can offer a work environment that will help you grow on a professional - as well as on a personal level.

You will get firsthand experience within the energy sector and within a trading business - and you will join an international company with a proven track record and an ambitious growth plan!

You will be joining a team consisting of different personalities and skillsets, but where the fundamental principle is pulling together. We offer flexible working hours and location. We offer a positive working environment characterized by expertise, high responsibility, and innovation with a high degree of participation and decision-making influence.

We engage our employees in Guilds driving both technical innovation, process improvements and social activities. We also have an active Staff Association that arranges a broad variety of activities.
