About the team
We at Yara are part of a global network, collaborating to solve profitably and responsibly some of the world's key challenges resource scarcity, food insecurity, and environmental change.
Whilst the focus of the unit is to deliver software solutions to farmers and partners all around the globe, this team’s focus is to enable and empower the software engineering teams across the unit to allow them to scale without frictions with the infrastructure and the services configurations that they need to keep their services up and running.
Whilst there are many PaaS out there, we as a corporation must be agnostic to outside vendors as well as compliant with our internal and strict ethics, security, and business continuity policies.
With this in mind we chose to build our multi-cloud platform on top of Kubernetes, which allows us to grow our automation and self-service offerings building everything from Developer Portal to custom Kubernetes Resources when needed to provide, secure, monitor and customize external cloud resources, such as databases, storage, topics / queues and much more.
Some of the technologies we use :
AWS (Azure and others to come)
