This is an opportunity to join Maersk's Technology organization as a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) / Platform Engineer for our Event Streaming Platform, and drive visible change at a globally respected, industry leading brand.

Our team's mission is to build and maintain an event streaming-based integration platform through the use of cloud computing, infrastructure-as-code and container technologies like Docker/Kubernetes. We want to make the lives easier for those product teams who are tasked with integrating our applications to meet business needs.

This is an extremely exciting time to join a fast paced, growing and dynamic team that solves some of the toughest integration problems in the industry, and enable the building of the future of Maersk as the global integrator of container logistics.
