As specialists in our field, we help to drive and realise the technical strategy of the organisation using modern engineering methodologies and technologies. Our platforms are hosted both physically and virtually in private and public clouds.
Intrigued to hear more?
The environment we work in is fast paced and dynamic. In order to deliver securely and at pace for our colleagues and customers, we're transforming the delivery and operational capabilities of the team, based on DevOps principals and technologies.
Our engineers work collaboratively to ensure that we maintain and support the platform in parallel to its evolution. This is an operational focussed team so an element of out of hours working / support may be required.
