About the role:

This is an excellent opportunity for a driven individual to take on a DevOps Engineering role, helping to deliver exciting customer driven solutions. From our Central DevOps team we lead the way in defining the best of new technology offerings, working closely with our Engineering Leads to collectively drive the tooling agenda whilst balancing the requirements of the UKs leading retail bank. The ultimate measure of success for us is leveraging these best of breed software and platform solutions so that we can continuously improve how we deliver market leading applications for our customers.

With our breadth, reach and diversity, we can offer excellent opportunities for career growth and development. And we are looking for people who can seize those opportunities; you'll get plenty of support but it's about taking the initiative, building relationships and making it happen. Do this and you can help us make a positive difference to our customers, our colleagues and our communities.

Key responsibilities

  • Thought leadership in all aspects of DevOps tooling. This will involve defining and contributing to the overall strategy of the Group

  • Working with Engineering teams to upskill their capabilities in their relevant technology area

  • Taking ownership of specific problems and delivering customer focused outcomes

  • Be an ambassador for the DevOps brand both internally and externally

What we're looking for

  • A phenomenal teammate who can build relationship and work productively with others across a variety of domains, disciplines and locations

  • Someone who is passionate about technology and its application to real-world problems

  • Someone who has confidence to express own opinions, and be pragmatic about modifying them when appropriate

  • Deep technical knowledge of a specific area of DevOps tooling, e.g. Continuous Integration tooling pipelines across a variety of technologies (e.g. Java/.NET), Containerisation (Docker/Kubernetes/etc..), Cloud Platforms (AWS/Azure/Google), Infrastructure as Code (Terraform/Chef/Puppet/Ansible), Source control platforms (TFS/VSTS/Git/GitLab/GHE/Bitbucket/Gerrit/etc..)

  • Solid core OS level skills (e.g. UNIX/LINUX/Windows/ZOS) with supporting industry standard scripting skills

  • Experience of coaching and mentoring teams to adopt latest techniques

It is important that you bring the right mind-set to the role. We understand in such a diverse and disparate world no one person can be an authority in all aspects of all DevOps tooling. If you have the right technical background, a willingness to be part of a team dedicated to transforming the landscape and are willing to develop yourself then we're keen to hear from you.

So what can we offer you in return?

Our vision of being the best bank for customers is dependent on every colleague committing to and demonstrating our core value of "putting customers first". By individually and collectively committing to our Group values, we will be able to make a difference together and help Britain prosper.

We're committed to employing a diverse and inclusive workforce, reflective of the customers and communities we serve - where all our colleagues can be themselves and succeed on merit.

And we're proud to have received these industry recognitions: 'Stonewall Top Private Sector Employer', 'Top10 Employer for Working Families', 'The Times Top 50 Employer for Women' and both 'Gold Standard' and "Best Workplace Adjustments Process" from the Business Disability Forum.

Whatever your aspiration, you can also expect excellent benefits, personal development and a career that's enriching and full of opportunity.

You'll also receive a package that includes

  • Discretionary bonus

  • Cash sum of 4% which you can exchange for a variety of benefits or simply take the cash
