About the role

As our goal is to be a catalyst for change, our team is mainly passionate about accelerating adoption of modern engineering practices: Cloud, Open Source, DevOps, SRE, CI/CD, and others.

As an engineering centric team, we have fair degree of autonomy about what we work on, and we strive to dedicate our effort on the most impactful work.

We generally engage in two broad categories of work:

  • Vertical: We work alongside other teams to provide support and guidance on how to accelerate their transformation.

  • Passionate about driving a true modern DevOps culture.
  • Passionate about mentoring and coaching.
  • Showcase interpersonal and communications skills with ability to communicate and engage with non-technical and senior audiences.

We'd also welcome the following experience:

  • Good understanding of SRE practices.
  • Awareness of security considerations and security tools used to integrate with the build pipeline covering OWASP top 10.
  • Hands-on skills and project experience with automated configuration delivery tools - one or more of Terraform, Ansible, Chef or Puppet.
  • Experience of working in a Scrum/Agile/Lean environment.
  • Understanding of modern CI/CD tooling.
  • Good awareness of microservice architectures and containerisation.

Together we make it possible. What you'd get in return:

Offering you both opportunity and profile - we'll provide you with a diverse, energising and lively environment that focuses on equal opportunity and real career progression. We'll take your personal and professional development very seriously and enable you to make a genuine difference to millions throughout your career with us!
