We have a great opportunity to play a senior role in our award winning DevOps team and be part of the ground breaking innovation we are delivering for millions of our customers.

Our teams in Group Transformation are passionate about creating new services for our customers that bring the latest products to market. Our culture brings together smart, talented, people from diverse backgrounds who enjoy a collaborative and innovative environment that supports flexible and agile working.

As a DevOps Engineer in our central team, you will work in a highly collaborative way to drive efforts to build, support and improve our tools for Continuous Integration, automated testing and release management. We expect that you'll demonstrate and apply exemplary engineering practices to increase agility, improve quality and help reduce downtime in all our solutions.

As DevOps is not a "thing you do" but a cultural change more than anything, you're also expected to drive this change and ensure that we embed agile and DevOps principles in everything we do.

We want to see placement of these skills in context - why they matter, what value they bring, how to get the most from them, how to evolve them and spread them further within the organisation.

This role may be worked as a job share therefore you are welcome to apply as an individual reduced hours applicant, or alongside another candidate. However please note that each candidate will be considered as an independent application, and reviewed on their own merit, therefore a specific partnership cannot be guaranteed.

It is also very important to understand and apply industry best practices, foster knowledge sharing to provide solutions for complex business problems where no precedent may exist, and ensure implementation of solutions where appropriate.

What we look for:

ESSENTIAL
* Experience in day-to-day administration of Jira & Confluence including operational support, troubleshooting, tuning, upgrade & optimization.
* Experience with customising Jira & Confluence (develop plugin and scripts) and other application integrations.
* Current knowledge of Java, JavaScript, HTML, Groovy, SQL, Bash and UNIX command line tools. Hands-on experience in writing code is a must.
* Demonstrable experience in Release Engineering, DevOps and Configuration Management

NICE TO HAVE
* Good understanding of TomCat including JVM tuning and Apache.
* Knowledge of Redhat Linux and Windows at a level of advanced user.
* Experience across the entire software development life-cycle from inception, through build to production
* Strong familiarity with source code repositories and change management tools, particularly Git.
* Experience with a configuration and deployment management tools is an advantage, e.g. UrbanCode, Ansible, Puppet, Chef
* Understanding of IT Service Management and project management methods
* A "can-do" attitude, capability of bootstrapping projects, and ability to effectively work with multi-disciplinary, internal and external distributed teams across the project lifecycle
* Strong familiarity with source code repositories and change management tools, particularly Git
* Familiarity with agile development practices, continuous integration and test automation (TDD, BDD, Selenium)
* Experience automating release and build processes using Jenkins
* Experience with configuration and deployment management tools, e.g. UrbanCode, Ansible
* Skilled in one or more scripting languages (e.g. Ruby, Bash, Python)
* Experience across the entire software development life-cycle from inception, through build to production

Making you feel valued is important, so we provide comfortable, modern working environments to help everyone make the most of every working day and offer a highly competitive salary and rewards package.

Together we make it possible.
