Full Time
DevOps Engineer required for leading software house in Chelmsford. The company have enjoyed unrivalled success since their formation growing to around 100 heads with no plans to slow down as they enter a very exciting phase of growth. As a newly created position, you can expect a high degree of autonomy and the opportunity to own the Release, Build and DevOps function within the company. Forgive the cliché but this is genuinely an exciting time to be joining the organisation.

This role has been created to give their clients more support to assist them in the configuration of QA deployment, upgrades to infrastructure and looking at ways to improve their processes so that there is consistency in deployment. You will be an evangelist for Continuous integration / Delivery (CI/CD) within the organisation with the measures of your success focused on Quality and efficiency. As a character, you will enjoy working closely with technical teams as an authority on all things DevOps/Release and build. The team is a personable crowd so the ability to communicate effectively and educate and work collaboratively with your peers is vital to the success of the position.

Technically we have a shopping list in mind but the right individual with some gaps in his / her knowledge will always be considered. Personality and the right attitude goes a long way with this company. Linux Sys admin and strong AWS skills (particularly CloudFormation) are the order of the day here with the likes of Git, Docker, JBoss, Apache, Emap, and understand the capabilities of Jenkins. Scripting skills across Python, Ruby, Bash and understanding of Java (basic level), which will pay to your advantage. Fundamentally, however, a grounding in the first two areas (Linux/AWS) coupled with a hunger to learn and aptitude/attitude conducive to their culture (passionate technologists who are happy to share a drink together!) is most important. In the early stages of this role, you will be working onsite two / three days, so candidates will need to be open to travelling.

Hurren and Hope have been chosen as a recruitment partner of choice for this company and as such are dealing directly with decision makers. If you are interested to hear more, please get in touch and your application will be responded to as soon as possible.

Thank you for your interest. Hurren and Hope, it's about people, not sales
