Job Description

Senior Infra Devops Developer 
Flexible benefits package

Candidate must be eligible for UK Security Clearance. 

Position Description 
These are exciting times for our client. We are doing something different here in London working with open source technologies in our brand new delivery hub. It’s a great time to join the team – we are changing the way we look, behave, and do business. As a result we're looking for talented individuals who can help deliver these new and innovative open source projects. 

Skills & Capabilities 

Essential Skills 

?    Linux (RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, firewall/networking configuration) 

?    Containerisation and Container Orchestration Systems (Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift) 

?    Configuration Management Tooling (Puppet, Ansible, Chef) 

?    Virtual Machine Automation Tooling (Vagrant, Packer) 

?    Programming in Dynamic Languages (Python, Ruby or similar) 

?    Cloud Providers (AWS, Google Cloud Compute, Azure) 

?    Continuous Integration and Build Tools (Jenkins, Maven, Gradle) 

?    Strong communication skills 

?    Ability to work on multiple projects concurrently 


Desirable skills 

?    Deployment Tools (Capistrano, Passenger or Fabric) 


?    Leadership/Delivery 

?    Deployment and management of large scale systems and estates 

?    Linux operating system tuning and optimisation 

?    Experience in software development lifecycle (Agile methodologies) 

?    Windows Automation 

?    Familiarity with open source licensing models 

What are we looking for from you? You will be someone who already makes a difference, we will give you the freedom and responsibility to continue doing so. You will be involved at the beginning of our open source journey and will have an active role in influencing our future plans and technical direction. You’ll already know how to harness cloud-based computing to deliver a service, and use Infrastructure As Code tools to define the environment, and be willing to share this knowledge with the developers to build our culture. And of course, you will be part of a fast-growing, pioneering working environment as we expand our capability to meet the increasing demand from our clients. 


We're offering the best of both worlds – you will be joining a new, vibrant start-up business in London but also having the comfort of being part of a large, financially stable organisation. 

Role and Responsibility 

As a senior DevOps engineer, you will work closely with developers, other members of the DevOps team, and project stakeholders to produce robust and repeatable infrastructure solutions across a range of platforms, from cloud to bare metal. As part of our team, your work will include interesting standalone infrastructure projects, not only building infrastructure to facilitate products. As a senior engineer, you will get the opportunity to contribute towards process and technology choices that help deliver the best solutions for our clients; you will also have opportunities to lead projects and be expected to provide advice and mentoring for more junior colleagues. 


?    Occasional travel to other parts of the UK may be required.
