Still struggling to find that DevOps Engineer role where you can work on multiple and interesting challenges? Our client, based in Central London have been going for 4 years’, scaled to 200+ staff in the UK and are now looking at breaking into the US market. It’s a tech-focussed company, working across a flat structure where everyone’s ideas are valued. There’s bucket loads of projects, the ability to progress with the latest tech and a variety within the role that will challenge you on a daily basis.

What do we want and what will you do…
We’re looking for a Cloud Engineer to work within a DevOps focussed team, to maintain and improve the entire platform suite, to think outside the box to come up with innovative solutions and to collaborate across a strong technical team.

Within the role you’ll be working within a complex and challenging environment, designing the platform, integrating new technologies, creating high availability systems and working across multiple teams. As the company continues to grow (in users and geographical locations) you’ll be part of a team responsible for helping scale the infrastructure as easily / efficiently as possible.

About you…
You have a passion for DevOps, a love for Cloud and enjoy automating BAU tasks so that you can focus on more interesting projects. You have a strong background within cloud environments, you are able to work across infrastructure technologies and you have the ability to code / script at a good level.

You have an inquisitive nature and want to constantly develop your skills. You believe the best way to really understand technical capabilities is to break things to build them back up, or you just like designing your own solutions.

The technology / experience needed…
Our client hire on attitude and potential so if you don’t commercial experience with all of these tools / skills don’t worry. Show us your passion, where you want to be in 5 years and it might match up;
• A strong background with Linux OS (RedHat, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu etc) and firewalls (IPTables, pfSense, IPFire etc)
• The ability to work with automation tools (SaltStack, Puppet, Ansible etc) and IaC systems (Terraform, Cloudformation etc) with scalability in mind.
• Experience within cloud services (AWS, OpenStack etc) and virtualised environments (VMware, vSphere etc)
• Ability to code / script to a good level (Python, Bash, Golang – whatever you want as long as it’s Linux based) to utilise a DevOps approach / methodology.

As well as having a good skillset within DevOps and Cloud technologies we would also like candidates with wider infrastructure experience; could be networking, could be databases, could be security – but these can also help to compliment other projects / teams.

Next steps… Easy, apply for the role and we’ll be in touch.
