What you'll do

Working for the teams who make and deliver our software, you’ll make sure services are effective across test, development and production environments.

It’ll be your job to drive improvements, whether they relate to boosting enjoyment of the software or the efficiency of our teams.

And, above all, you’ll make certain our agile methodology isn’t hampered by operational requirements, or delays in delivery or software transitions.

You’ll be part of a super-motivated DevOps team whose mission is to create new and awesome tools that will empower our development teams to do things in an automated and safer way. Whilst standardising processes to ensure all development teams are aligned with each other.

  • Strong knowledge around platform automation technologies, such as Puppet and Ansible. Experience with AWX is a plus.
  • Good level of understanding regarding database administration, including but not limited to, Cassandra, Neo4j and ElasticSearch as well as the traditional ones (MySQL, Oracle, etc).
  • Equipped with basic programming know-how – including an understanding of code and coding concepts – plus advanced knowledge of scripting languages (Bash, Python, Perl, Ruby...). Knowledge in Django framework is a plus.
  • Familiar with software development, including concepts, current technologies and frameworks.
  • A talented Linux administrator who knows about network diagnostics and services.
