What will you be doing?

Our client has a high availability data processing and reporting solution for IoT devices. At present the system processes several GB of data per day and it is expected to grow significantly in the near future. The system processes the input and prepares it for display via an API as graphs and charts on a front end that has not yet been built. As a DevOps engineer, you will be partly responsible for optimizing and building the infrastructure to process this data and making it available to the front end.
