About this opportunity

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Consumer Servicing and Engagement Platform for a DevOps Engineer.

As a DevOps Engineer in our central team, you will work in a highly collaborative way to drive efforts to build, support and improve our tools for Continuous Integration, automated testing and release management within our public and private Cloud hosting platform. We expect that you will demonstrate and apply outstanding engineering practices to increase agility, improve quality and help reduce downtime in all our solutions.

A DevOps is not a “thing you do” but a cultural change more than anything, you are also expected to drive this change and ensure that we embed agile and DevOps principles in everything we do. We want to see placement of these skills in context - why they matter, what value they bring, how to get the most from them, how to evolve them and spread them further within the organisation.

It is also very important to understand and apply industry standard methodologies, foster collaborative working to provide solutions for complex business problems where no precedent may exist and ensure implementation of solutions where appropriate.
