Role: Devops Engineer
Location: Remote first until Jan 2021 when there will be expection to be in the office at least 2 days a week

Working closely with the Software Engineering Manager and working across 5 squads (c. 40 people in total), we are looking for a Devops Engineer instrumental in driving best practice and autonomous automation engineering.

The company is embarking on THE most exciting journey!

With years of technical debt, the plan is to rearchitect their entire platform base, to separate their vast estate into independently deployable products and to move to an event driven, cloud first architecture base around which they’re rebuilding cross functional teams.

One of the major projects is to enhance the customer experience with the build of an entirely new self service platform. Serving over 5m customers every year, the platform is currently built on all tech with the plan to move to a fully microservices API driven platform built on AWS, with React front end and a .net core back end.

Acting as the subject matter expert for this area, you will drive automation engineering; develop automated deployments; engineer and implement new cloud technology solutions; and maintain an in-depth understanding of AWS (and other cloud services) to ensure all appropriate options are considered to support business initiatives

The Engineering Director states:

“Splitting into autonomous customer focused product teams, we have a fantastic opportunity to drive day-to-day growth by transforming our customer experience.

10+ years of adding features can leave a lot of technical debt with a monolithic database and we are no different. We have the backing from our board to replatform everything to move to a fully microservice based architecture and our CEO is driving our move to a product engineering culture.”

Experience / Qualifications (a mixture of the below would be brilliant):

• AWS Cloud experience in development and architecture
• IAC - Terraform, Packer, Puppet, and Ansible
• Scripting languages such as powershell, python and bash to automate repetitive work
• Knowledge of web, security, and networking protocols, private cloud or on prem solution architecture experience.
• Continuous Delivery pipelines
• Understanding of common monitoring tools such as ELK, Sensu, Grafana & Cloudhealth
• Cloud security and governance

Don’t miss out, this is a brilliant opportunity.

Shared learning, collaborative working, personal training plans, health & wellbeing programs and much more are all the norm at this forward thinking and very cool brand.

Attractive salary (to £55k base) & package including Bonus, flexitime, pension, and more.
