They have more transactions per day than the entire European stock exchange and because of the sheer scale, they constantly update their tooling and even create their own tooling and publish this on open source. In 2018 they are looking towards machine learning, self-healing and intelligent maintenance technology. This really is an excellent opportunity for someone who has a great interest in working and creating new technology.

They expect you to work in all of these areas but are specifically looking to strengthen their development capability in the UK team so are looking for strong experience in one or more of Python, Java, Go, PHP, Ruby and JavaScript to compliment your excellent Linux, networking and storage knowledge.

They are looking for a technologist who has both experience in a Linux Engineer role and some experience in a Developer role to join their Site Reliability Engineering team and develop software systems ensure their platform and release engineering systems are built to withstand their ever-increasing operational load.
