An established and very well know e-commerce organisation who are still in a period of rapid growth are looking for a DevOps Engineer. Established in 2010 they still see themselves as a disruptive startup and keep that tech focused, agile culture. However, they have seen significant growth over the last 4 or so years and are really well known as an exclusive e-commerce organisation.

Not only are they a well-respected, technically driven and current organisation they also have a great company culture. Firstly, our partner encourages their engineers to work on side projects and personal objectives by giving them time to do so in work hours. They also offer regular hack days, team building activities and have dedicated budgets for training and conferences.

Currently, we're looking for engineers with a strong development background. Whether you're still a software engineer with operational experience looking to break into DevOps or a DevOps engineer with that background, we want to hear from you.

You'll be brought into the team to implement new and maintain existing applications, optimise their delivery pipeline and maintain and scale their infrastructure through code. One of the projects you will be involved with from day one is the ongoing move from a large monolithic estate to microservices infrastructure.

The three core requirements for the position are AWS, Python, and Ansible. As their platform is written in Groovy and Python, experience with these development languages is preferable however other JVM based languages are also transferrable. Our partner are also heavy users of AWS and use a range of services including Lambda.

In return for your coding, cloud and automation experience, you'll be given the opportunity to work with some of the most modern Open Source technology around. The platform team you'll join are working with Groovy, Python, Ansible, Terraform, Consul, Docker, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Jenkins, Linux, SmartOS, AWS and more.

If you want to work in a collaborative, fun and modern environment and would like to hear further details, either apply, give me a call on 07943686247 or email
