DevOps Engineer opportunity - Game development company - Up to £40,000 - 80,000

Do you like gaming? Then you may be interested in a new challenge presented by a multi award winning mobile game development and hosting company I’m working with. They are doing extremely well and millions of players enjoy their games every month.

They are often launching new games or introducing new events to current ones. When this happens the number of players online increases dramatically (more than 500%!) in a very short space of time so the need for a responsive, autoscaling infrastructure is paramount. This is hopefully where you come in! We need a DevOps person like yourself to take ownership of a series of new enhancements and features, design and build tools and really optimise the infrastructure.

Select technologies: Chef, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, web services (Apache, Tomcat), Linux (CentOS, Ubuntu), continuous integration/continuous delivery (Jenkins), Ruby, Python, Go, DynamoDB, ELK


  • A meaningful stake in the business with generous share bonuses
  • Private health
  • Free breakfast and snacks
  • Support to undertake training and go to conferences (they want their people to be DevOps evangelists and active in the open source community)
  • Flexible working hours
  • Loads of fun team activities (parties, Go Karting, Foosball, LAN/Board gaming, film nights etc…)

Have I piqued your interest enough that it might be at least worth us having a chat about this, in confidence, at no commitment to yourself? If so I’d be delighted to speak with you and give you a bit more information and even if this ultimately is not the one for you, ascertain what is and see if I can line up your dream job.

Look forward to hearing from you - until then I wish you all the best
