Location: Oslo, Lysaker / Hybrid

The maritime industry is at the cusp of digital transformation, and we at Wilhelmsen are here to shape the future. We are committed to shaping the maritime industry through our market leading products and services. We seek to pursue new opportunities in renewables, zero-emission shipping, and marine digitalization. We take innovation, sustainability, and unparalleled customer experiences one step further.

Through edge computing on vessels, autonomous ships, vessel performance management and onboard software for day-to-day ship management, we’re going after the vast opportunities in this otherwise traditional sector. We have software deployed and actively used on a third of the world’s merchant fleet, and we’re not stopping there.

The opportunity

In Wilhelmsen you will work with Azure, IaC, K8S and a cloud native approach. You will take part in our Greenfield journey and have a key role in shaping our future Azure cloud footprint. We are working for a truly automated, cloud native and CI/CD led environment.  

“Since most of our cloud journey so far has been limited to a lift-and-shift, this is a real opportunity to impact the true use of cloud for the future, maximizing its impact on the business!”
– Alexander Koch, Head of Cloud & DevOps in Wilhelmsen. 

We are committed to shaping the maritime industry into its new – more digital era. As a Cloud and DevOps Engineer in Wilhelmsen you will be able to focus your efforts on the more exciting work. The team has a responsibility to maintain the platform used by our developers, and large groups of users both internal and external. Additionally, we provide support for teams refactoring their applications to ensure they can run smoothly on the platform.
