Overview

In today’s world, the roles of DevOps and engineer have been highly intertwined.  At BeenVerified, we believe all engineers need to be trained and proficient in DevOps just as all DevOps need to be trained as software engineers.  In that way, the interplay between the two roles becomes more of team sport with comradery rather than a source of tension.  We believe in automation and tools to do the boring mundane work, while we put our minds to more useful, fun and challenging tasks.

Not all problems should be solved with programs. You will choose between writing new software and scripting a solution in shell. You’ll pick the most appropriate technology for the problem you’re trying to solve. You’ll advise developers on the best ways to make their applications highly available and rebuild our production environment to make it more available, deployable, and globalized.
