Your role at A.C.A.

During an internship as a System Engineer in our cloud team (Hasselt) you will learn a lot!

The assignment: Automatic Updates Kubernetes Cluster

In this assignment we are looking for an approach to automatically update our Kubernetes clusters. That means: the cluster and underlying OS Updates.

The progress and status of each cluster should be clearly displayed. Depending on the applications running within the cluster, various health checks will need to be in place to validate availability. This requires close cooperation with our team as well as the various development teams at ACA.

During your intership, you will get to know various other popular applications besides Kubernetes at a very fast pace such as ElasticSearch, Kafka, Zookeeper, and many more.

If you want to gain knowledge of Kubernetes and trending applications together with a lot of driven colleagues, this is your chance! ;-)
