I am working with one of the UK's Leading FinTech businesses based in London.

My client like to try new things and at their core has a passion for their users' experience. Because of that they have won awards for innovation, the design of their product and their use of technology. It's a great start, but they now have bold ambitions and that's why they are looking for individuals to join their business.

If you are a Senior DevOps Engineer that wants to join a close knit team, then I would like to talk to you. My client is growing fast and is scaling to keep ahead of that growth. You will have responsibility as a member of the team taking the current platform to the next level, keeping robustness, performance and security in focus.

As the Senior DevOps Engineer, you will deliver platform and site reliability enhancements from within one of their cross-functional delivery factions. In addition to engineering the platform and CI pipelines, your sprint work will include working with the whole team to deliver APIs, client apps and content into production.


- Solid background in Linux system administration and site reliability engineering. It would be beneficial if you have supported node.js applications and Tomcat.
- Strong experience of scripting and automation with a superior knowledge working with at least one configuration management system (e.g. Ansible, Puppet or Chef).
- A very good practical understanding of development and deployment pipelines and the use of CI tools, preferably Jenkins.
- Experience building distributed platforms in the cloud using AWS. Knowledge of orchestration tools (such as Docker swarm or Kubernetes) and a firm grasp of modern architectural approaches such as microservices and EDA.
- Good experience deploying and managing databases, both SQL (preferably Postgres) non-SQL backing services (e.g. Elastic Search, Kibana) and messaging systems.
- Experience using monitoring and APM solutions (e.g. AppDynamics, NewRelic) to support business-critical applications. Willingness to participate in a compensated on-call rota.
- Strong commercial understanding of scripting languages (ideally python, bash, perl or similar)
