The Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS) Project is looking for a
Product Owner Container Infrastructure.
We aim to fill this position by April 2021. The Project is driven by a small team in the OSB Alliance with multi-year funding from the German Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi). This job offering is for hiring into this team. In addition to this team there are numerous engineers from various companies contributing to the project -- some of them paid through the project funding, some of them because their employer is interested in making this project successful.
The Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS) Project is aiming to define and implement a complete, modular, secure, open-source software stack. It covers software-defined storage and networking, operations tooling for automated deployment, logging, monitoring, alerting, trending, identity and authorization management, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service layer, as well as Container(Platform)-as-a-Service layer. It allows users (development teams) to create and control their own kubernetes cluster through standardized APIs and delivers standard building blocks used to construct and manage container applications. This stack fulfills high security standards and comes with tooling and documentation that reduces the amount of specialized expertise required to run complex cloud and container infrastructure. SCS can be used by cloud service providers and internal IT teams alike and it can be deployed as a whole or by just cherry-picking needed components from it. The end result can be subjected to a certification process, ensuring strict compatibility with other SCS based platforms, thus building a network of federatable compatible clouds.
The SCS project is contributing to the pan-european GAIA-X effort, serving as reference for development work and enhancing it with an implementation that node-providers can leverage as a whole or in parts to deliver federated sovereign infrastructure, underpinning a sovereign data ecosystem.
