The Client

Our client is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of eyeglass lenses and ophthalmologic instruments. The business group develops and produces offerings for the entire eyeglass value chain that is distributed globally.

We are working on a web solution that delivers an innovative telemedicine system which enables the stores without optical doctor services to provide remote refraction exams to their customers.

The Opportunity

You’ll join a distributed team, building an innovative solution that integrates with optical medical devices, for one of the leaders in the industry. DevOps brings a fundamental change in collaboration – the recognition of the fact that there’s one entity standing behind a successful product: The delivery team. 

We care about simplicity. We believe in the Agile Manifesto, which is about finding better ways of software development. Our everyday practice involves virtualization, containerization, dealing with the Cloud, networking, configuring management systems, deploying automation and much, much more. “Co-creation” is an appropriate term to describe what we’re all about. Join us and get involved!
