Job Details

DevOps / SRE / Site Reliability Engineer / AWS / UNIX / Go

Are you an experienced DevOps with ambitions towards a head of platform type of role? If you have experience of running infrastructure at scale in a complex software environment hosted mainly on AWS and want to help put together a rock-solid infrastructure for a start up just getting ready to truly take off then I may have a role for you.

The company in question has built a successful product doing some very clever stuff around the supply chain winning them big clients like ASOS. However, most of the day-to-day infrastructure is still set up the way their CTO did it when they got started. They were small enough then for him to be hands on still they are not anymore. That is why they need to hire a DevOps engineer who wants to own their platform. They have an awesome team of developers who all willing contribute to DevOps type responsibilities however they feel as if the time has come to have a dedicated DevOps Engineer as they add new products and begin to scale. They fully expect to be told that they could be doing better and your expertise will help decide how.

The set-up is AWS with Go and sits on top of ECS rather than Kubernetes. They are open to change but this will be your remit to make those kinds of decisions. You have probably worked in a business during their high growth phase and if you were not the key decision maker you were probably at least present when the decisions were made and understand the practicalities involved. You are now looking for your chance to be the the DevOps engineering or platform engineering lynch pin.


  • Go for backend code and tooling.
  • AWS .
  • Terraform for IaC
  • ECS from AWS (for now)
  • PostgreSQL

Long term prospects in this role?

This role will offer growth into a head of platform position for someone interested in that kind of career development or you will have the option of staying on the technical path if that is preferred.

If this sounds like it could be the role for you then get in touch.

Send me your CV if you have it ready or just a brief overview of who you are and an example of a project you recently worked on and what you learnt there. I will reply to set up a call at a time that suits you to discuss further.
