Working with hundreds of developers and millions of lines of code requires good tools, infrastructure and systems. From code to builds to deployments, our DevOps departments ensure a smooth process for our developers.
Tools and languages
Our infrastructure is based around Azure cloud and GIT. All our developers will work across these technologies and are expected to be able to handle most aspects of software development from code to successful build and integration.
We are also using tools like Docker, Terraform, Packer, Ansible, Prometheus and Grafana.
At Danfoss Drives, we practice agile principles and our developers take responsibility for their tasks and all aspects of the product software. This is done as part of product focused multi-disciplinary teams.
I joined Danfoss Drives two years ago in the position of a DevOps Developer.
I am part of the DevOps Team within the Viking Project, where I am dealing with the automation of the whole software lifecycle around building, testing and packaging the software the approximately 150 developers in the Viking project create. Apart from being a developer, I am also the scrum master for my 8-people team, where I help the team to self-organize, improve its productivity and have fun while doing that.
We in DevOps embrace the Infrastructure as Code principle wherever we can. Around our main platforms Azure DevOps and Azure, we are using tools like Docker, Terraform, Packer, Ansible, Prometheus and Grafana to automate and monitor our build and test infrastructure of a couple of hundred machines as best as we can.
Danfoss is on an Agile transformation journey right now. In my opinion, the Danfoss way of working, to "Run the company like your own" really embraces flat hierarchies and self responsibility which are key ingredients for this journey to succeed. I really like working here, because the work culture within our project and between the teams is very respectful, supportive, goal driven.
Danfoss is one key contributor to the technology necessary to tackle the climate change, so for me it is not only fun to work with an awesome team using state-of-the-art technologies, but it also contributes to the common good and makes sense at the end of the day.
Before I came to Danfoss: I originally started studying Philosophy/ Mathematics at Freie Universität Berlin but dropped out very early during the dot.com bubble. I had started a side occupation as a self-taught Linux system administrator/ engineer before and starting from that, I founded a company 1999 in Berlin offering Open Source Systems Management consultancy/ services. I had worked in that field for almost 20 years when we (my wife, my daughter and me) moved to Flensburg close to the danish border where I then applied for the DevOps Developer position at Danfoss Drives in Gråsten.
