IT Ops DevOps Software engineering Revolutionizing and digitizing tour bus companies

Position: IT Ops and DevOps Engineer
Location: Oslo

Join us in revolutionizing a whole industry!

Ferdia is a leader in the digitalization of the tour bus industry through an Uber-like approach. We have good drive with international plans, and are searching for someone who can fill the joint role of IT Ops and DevOps.

About Ferdia

We will revolutionize the tour bus market by digitizing small and medium-sized tour bus companies and by making it much easier to rent and use tour buses. Be it for company trips, festivals or football matches.

We were started in 2016 and today have 5 employees and will soon be twice as many. We have nice offices at Startup Lab’s premises in Oslo. Our ambition is to grow in Europe. We have received support from Innovation Norway, entered a partnership with Tide (one of Norway’s largest bus companies), and have begun our work on internationalization. We are facing an exciting time!

We currently provide 2 services:

  • IT platform for tour bus companies that handle sales / orders, planning and invoicing. It is called TEQ and is now in use in 10 bus companies (and counting).
  • Bus rental for private customers and companies. We are currently the only player in Norway where the customer can get an accurate price estimate, as well as accept an offer with one click.

  • Process automation: CI / CD, change management, infrastructure- / platform- / configuration- as code
  • Continuous logging and monitoring, to allows us to gauge the state of runtime environments, react swiftly if incidents occur (alerts), and provide real-time insights into systems’ performance, stability and security.

IT Ops generally

  • Build and maintain a cloud infrastructure and architecture that meets our current and foreseeable needs, in terms of performance, maintainability, flexibility, security and scalability.
  • Be a gatekeeper for the IT infrastructure: Administrate and facilitate access to it.
  • Make sure that IT Ops are in sync and well aligned with the overall strategy, by coordinating your work with the Lead Backed Developer, CTO, Product Manager and CEO.
