With VIP-24 VSHN has decided to implement a follow-the-sun concept to cover 24/7 operations for our customer business, to reduce the burden of working outside normal working hours.

To do this, we need staff at additional locations around the world, ideally about 8 time zones apart from Switzerland. The Swiss evening hours and the time until midnight are most important for us because of scheduled changes and periodic maintenance work, and are therefore our priority.

With VSHN Canada - The DevOps Company Inc., located in Vancouver, British Columbia, we have our first follow-the-sun location, and employ people locally there.

Key Responsibilities

  • People in Vancouver are effectively working to cover the follow-the-sun needs of VSHN.

  • VSHN is a legally compliant employer in Vancouver.

Key Deliverables

  • VSHN Canada Opeartons - Primarily maintenance amd other night work, and plannable work capacity for other VSHN Teams.

  • Invoices of the services to VSHN Switzerland.


This shows the high level organization of VSHN Canada in relation to VSHN Switzerland.
