Are you a Senior DevOps engineer keen to own a function? Want to have complete autonomy over tooling and architecture? Want to build a team around you? Then Read on!

A rapidly scaling online homeware company based in Old Street, Central London are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join the company and completely own their operations team as they grow to help with managing, automating and scaling their platform.

Due to continued growth there is a need for their DevOps team to ensure the systems are robust and scalable. This includes investigating better monitoring, platform security, compliance with industry regulations, working with development teams to automate process, and everything in between. To ensure this they are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join the team, providing mentorship to other members of the team and eventually lead the team as they continue to grow over time.

A key part to ensuring reliability and availability in their platform is automation of deployment and integration. The Senior DevOps Engineer will help to drive this, applying Infrastructure as Code (IaC) principles, working with developers and QAs to improve the current CI/CD set up, utilising Ansible Tower, Python, Jenkins, Nomad, Docker, deploying to AWS. You will assist in driving new practices throughout our teams and infrastructure, making suggestions and collaborating on new solutions and processes.

As they are currently looking to trial Kubernetes, you will join the team in exploring how they do this, perhaps building some small features in AWS, migrating an app over and trialling it to see how it runs. They are still at the early stages of this, so are open to any business-focused ideas and approaches you might bring to the table.

What will the successful Senior DevOps Engineer have?

Confident at scripting: Python, Bash or equivalent

Confident supporting virtual platforms: AWS

Experienced with infrastructure as code: Terraform, Ansible

Confident using containers and orchestration tools: Docker, Kubernetes or ACS

Experienced in a production CI/CD environment: Jenkins, Bamboo, Gitlab or equivalent

You will be working with leading-edge technology and be given the opportunity to influence new tech that is introduced to their stack, as well as the processses that they use. This is an opportunity to work for a company that's constantly looking for new ways to innovate and grow, and as such a passion for evolution will be both welcomed and supported.

If this interests you and you would like to be considered then APPLY NOW!!
