Technical Writer

Worldwide
Full Time
Engineering

Data Centers around the world are experiencing a massive evolution, driven by containers, microservices, and cloud-native architectures. At Containous, we develop advanced software solutions for modern data centers. Our first product, Traefik, is being adopted at an exceptional rate: more than 25000+ stars on Github, 1+ billion downloads on DockerHub, and in production in thousands of data centers: it has become a recognized market leader less than two years after launch. We believe that Traefik’s simplicity is one of the key factors that made it so popular. This ease of use is what guides us when we design new products: TraefikEE, our distributed Ingress solution built with business in mind, Maesh, our simpler service mesh, and Yaegi, our go interpreter.

  • Anything from serious interest to a definite passion for Open Source
