Who we are

mlean is a startup from Valladolid that accompanies manufacturers and industrial suppliers in their digitization process towards Industry 4.0. where people are at the center of our software.

No buzzwords: we make the most of smartphones and tablets to facilitate the daily lives of people working on the production line. Once this data is stored in digital form, we convert it into relevant information for continuous improvement in the factory.

Our mlean® Production System (mPS) is used in more than 300 factories in different countries across Europe, US, Africa and Asia. For developing the mPS, our engineering team is composed of professionals with knowledge of iOS (Swift), HTML, CSS, Javascript (Vue.js) and Python (Django). Additionally, we use XCode UI to test our apps, TestCafe on the frontend and Django Test for our backend. Jenkins helps us with the integration of all the system modules, which we deploy using Docker and Ansible.

What are we looking for

Our current engineering team is composed of 22 people, three of which are labeled as the Operations team. This team is responsible for the tooling behind the release and maintenance of the system in almost 300 working instances, as well as the deployment of new sites each week.

Current deployments fall into three categories:

  • On-premise: physical servers inside the corporate network of our customers.
  • Cloud: using Amazon Web Services.
  • Private clouds: namely Azure.

For this reason, we expect previous experience in Linux system administration (Ubuntu) and the deployment of digital products using AWS. Our applications live on Docker containers, so it is also important that you have knowledge of how this technology works.

Finally, the deployment of so many factories would not be possible in a manual manner. All the deployment tasks are automated using Ansible, integrated on CI/CD pipelines. Previous experience with these frameworks is also valued. 

Since mlean has an international presence, we expect you to be autonomous in your potential conversations with IT crews in other countries, typically using English.
