After the execution of a brilliant marketing strategy, one of the UK's fastest growing e-commerce firms are about to embark on a massive DevOps transformation and have need of a Devops Engineer to help them evangelise the movement in the business.

These guys are very well established in the online space but after a stroke of genius by their marketing team, they have grown exponentially growing from 40 people to over 200! The marketing genius lead to their site crashing from an overload of traffic causing infrastructure to fail under the load!

Therefore, they underwent a massive agile transformation to bring IT to the forefront of the business bringing in Thoughtworks and re-architecting their building to breed an agile way of working from the foundation up! The company are flourishing under the investment in their tech team and are now undergoing a devops transformation.

Fast forward five years these guys are agile evangelists in their own right and after bringing in a director of the infrastructure they are now building out their DevOps team; looking for an engineer to sit in small scrum teams to push the company towards automated deployment in AWS.

Previously the release and deployment were managed by the developers but with the company growing as they are, they are for specialists to help improve the scalability of the Aws infrastructure and for engineers for improving the continuous integration/ delivery pipelines.
What are they looking for?

They are Open to Background! Linux OR Windows (ideally Linux)
Experience working with developers to ship code
Experience with configuration management: chef, puppet, ansible
Knowledge of Build tools: Jenkins, Maven, Travis
Experience working in a devops environment.
Strong scripting experience: Python/ Java/ Ruby - Maybe even an ex-developer

What is really awesome is the company are pushing to work with Docker so whether you have experience with docker, or simply are keen to work with it, you have a brilliant opportunity to get to work with it commercially.

Given how agile the company is - working with developers is a must; so you must be comfortable shipping code.

These guys really look after their employees; with an extensive package - bonus, healthcare, free gym, free food and flexible working!
