Job Description

Background

Based in Harrow, our Client is a provider of premium quality Open Systems and Open Source technology services to a blue-chip customer base that includes British Airways, Camelot, Channel 4 Television and ASOS.com. We are passionate about creating business value through doing interesting things with technology. Within our small but successful company, you will have the opportunity to make the most of your skills and contribute at all levels of the applications and infrastructure stack. 

They provide a happy, respectful and collaborative working environment and we give our employees the freedom to find innovative solutions for themselves. Working conditions are informal and un-corporate, there’s no dress code (unless meeting a customer); you’ll even get to choose the Linux distro that runs on your desktop.

The Role

We are looking for a bright DevOps-minded junior systems engineer with development experience to join us in supporting and developing infrastructure solutions for our customers. The role will touch on all aspects of Linux systems engineering, supporting, building and maintaining the infrastructure, applications and tools that we and our customers depend on. 

This is an ideal opportunity for a graduate with some relevant industry experience who wants to progress to the next level, immerse themselves in technology, working with and learning from some exceptional peers. Your responsibilities and rewards will grow with your experience. 

Technology-wise you will have the chance to receive exposure to all levels of the applications and infrastructure stack. We develop applications in many different languages and open frameworks, deploying and supporting them in our own data centre space, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or on customer premises. Recognised as Integration experts we are an active part of the ‘API Explosion’, helping our customers gain business advantage through integration in the Cloud.


The Successful Candidate

  • Will be a self-starter, quick to learn and have a passion for delivering to exceed expectations.
  • Will have a desire to pick up new skills and share your knowledge to help the team continuously improve.
  • Fill the gaps in your knowledge by asking the right questions.
  • Be enthusiastic, methodical programmer and know how to recognise good quality code. You may have published some of your projects on places like GitHub.
  • Have a degree (or equivalent) in an IT related subject.
  • Be a geek with good communications skills and a nice personality – you’ll run Linux on your desktop at home and have an opinion on what’s the best distribution and why.
