Lead DevOps Engineer - £80,000 - £110,000 + Bonus & Benefits

I am looking for a Lead Platform Engineer to work for a global institution, a professional trade association, that has been around for hundreds of years and continues to have a critically important role, impacting on society as a whole?

The organisation combines the best of both worlds - a long and distinguished heritage (and lots of resources), as well as a genuinely forward thinking management team who embrace technology as a 'business enabler' that can add huge value, rather than an overhead.

This is an opportunity for a Lead Engineer to be part of a DevOps centre of excellence. Collaborate and learn from some of the best minds in the industry. Take advantage of the massive resources that the company are pouring into the DevOps team. Benefit from training delivered by subject matter experts from well recognised organisations such as Red Hat and Puppet Labs. Go to conferences such as Docker Con, all expenses paid!

This is a lead role for one of the biggest transformation projects in the UK! (it's a fairly hands on role) but you will provide technical leadership to a team of 10 engineers to help deliver your vision.

The benefits and salary are very competitive paying up to £110,000 + Bonus, 6% pension and a flexible benefit scheme where you can chose what you add on.


* Excellent Linux system administration
* Scripting and automation skills (Bash, Jenkins, Groovy, Ruby, Python, etc…)
* Some experience of configuration management using tools such as Ansible, Terraform, Chef or Puppet.
* Experience in supporting production applications on AWS or other similar cloud technologies.
* Knowledge of containerisation and microservices (e.g. Docker, rkt)
* Experience creating and working with development pipelines using tools such as Git, Jenkins, Ant, NPM, Stash

You will be working on high profile projects across the public and private sector, and work for a company who empowers their employees to be the best.
