Västtrafik AB is owned by the Västra Götaland region.
Västtrafik is responsible for public transport in Western Sweden. Every day, over 400,000 customers choose to travel with our buses, trains, trams and boats.
During a day, the vehicles drive around 47,500 miles, which corresponds to close to 12 times around the earth, and our journey planner is used 1,200,000 times.
By developing and offering sustainable travel and smart services, we want to be the obvious choice when you travel. In this way, Västtrafik contributes to the good life in Västra Götaland and to an attractive and competitive region.
The DevOps team at Västtrafik offers a development platform to Västtrafik’s development team with the aim of simplifying development, management and exposure of Västtrafik’s applications. The heart of the platform is our Kubernetes environment with associated services where we currently run the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated Edition (TKGI) from VMware. However, TKGI will go to end of life in 2024, which is why we need to switch to VMware’s new solution “vSphere with Tanzu”.
We are therefore looking for a consultant with documented experience with “vSphere with Tanzu” who can help us design and implement this solution. We believe you have designed and done some installations of this product before. As we will likely have NSX-T as a network solution, it is also of great importance that you have experience in the design and implementation of this component. You are otherwise well versed in VMware’s products and also have experience with TKGI.
In this role, you will work closely with Västtrafik’s Devop team with design and implementation. You act as a sounding board and assist with your experience in the various architectural decisions that need to be made. It is of great importance that the solution developed is well documented and that knowledge is transferred to the team members.
