You will have acquired a deep level of Linux knowledge through working on these applications. This will include, but is not limited to: debugging networks, monitoring, web serving and a good understanding of TCP/IP, for instance, and VCP etc.

It is also necessary to have a good fundamental understanding of Python and/or Ruby and will have used either for accessing and using data via an API.

You will also have gained significant experience in the cloud hosting space - with a good understanding of configuration management using tools like Puppet or Chef. You will have worked on building and improving a deployment pipeline using one of either Capistrano, Jenkins or Bamboo for CI/CD.

Finally, but importantly, you are going to be working closely with other technical teams in the business.
