The company are seeking hungry, ambitious individuals with excellent scripting skills and an unflinching commitment to automation.
Your new role
The team are responsible for the build and provisioning of machines that serve both developers and customers in production. The crux of the role is to automate in order to reduce unnecessary expenditure on tasks. It's a multi-tenant cluster that needs to be robust and you'll cover the full development stack from OS to deployment with UI and testing in-between.
You'll look to productionise new components and investigate the resources needed to enable them. There is a supportive team of in house experts that have heavy scripting knowledge and your work will underwrite improvements in security and networking as well as the build and performance areas. There is a shared belief that developers should gain an appreciation of the whole business and understand the customers journey.
You'll be working with some of the best technical minds in this field locally, running a mature adoption of Agile with a truly progressive build pipeline that is ahead of the competition. It's a fun, sociable work environment where work life balance is not an abstract culture.

What you'll get in return
There is flexibility in the working hours and the company are looking at a more corporate benefit package to increase pension contributions and smaller benefits such as cycle to work scheme. The main non-salaried attraction is around getting involved in a cutting edge business at a pivotal point and being rewarded with a share of the company profits.
