Things like setting up pipelines to automate release candidates for our SEO plugin, or the migration of CI pipelines from Travis to Jenkins.

Besides that you'll be available to support our development team and QA in case of any questions about automatic processes. You monitor alerts and escalate these to the right people when necessary.
