Contract Type
Full Time
Role: Platform Engineer (Java / Python / DevOps) (Junior/Mid or Snr)
Location: Central Manchester (Deansgate)
Salary: £40,000-£60,000 (Depends on experience. My client are open to bright juniors/mid levels and more senior individuals)
Benefits: 27 days leave (plus bank holidays), Flexible working hours, Home working, Excellent training, Developing new products from scratch, Paid travel to relevant technology events

This is the opportunity with an individual with either Python or Java development skills to take up a Platform Engineering role with an organisation who are pushing DevOps practices - ultimately you will learn DevOps. Their environment is fully AWS.

The majority of their development is done in Java currently, however my client recognise that specific languages are less important that the talent, ability and mindset of an engineer so they are open to see people with different technology stacks.

This is not a client facing role or consultancy work.

Essential skills:
  • Experience to a competent level with Java or Python
  • Experience of test automation
  • Strong passion for AWS (if you haven't got experience you should know exactly what it does and its features)
  • Experience of continuous delivery for one or more applications

Essentially my client want someone with a decent level of experience in Java or Python who has exposure to or experience in AWS. Anything more than this is a bonus and will result in them paying higher up the scale.

What you'll be doing/what you'll learn:
  • Create exemplar application and infrastructure as a code CI / CD pipelines for both applications and infrastructure as a code
  • Support technical leads with challenges faced by individual squads (there are 8) as they adopt DevOps practices
  • Support squads in the adoption of infrastructure as a code, monitoring and taking ownership of their own dependencies
  • Work with architects to define platform strategy and technology choices for the organisation as they adopt a server-less doctrine when building applications
  • Lead product section and proof of concept work to evaluating new services and systems to determine if they will enhance the organisations platform.

Their tool-chain:
  • Environments
  • All in AWS
  • Primarily Java (50+ Micro-services) but widespread use of Python, Node, Ruby and C#
  • Native IOS and Android
  • Front-end built with Reach and Angular
  • CircleCI
  • SonarCloud
  • Docker
  • Artifactory
  • AWS CodePipeline
  • AWS CloudFormation
  • Serverless Framework
  • OpenAPI

If there is anyone you can recommend or if you'd like to know more yourself - please get in touch urgently. I am closing the shortlist on Monday 15th. Interviews can take place as soon as the client see's an individual they like.

I am the only agent working on this role - you can only get access to this amazing client through Gravitas.

Kind regards,
