It's not likely that the DevOps Consultant will be required to travel to the company HQ/other offices at all (or very rarely)

  • Looking at 40 - 45% growth over the next year to eighteen months
  • Covid: 99% of delivery has been remote and won't change until the pandemic subsides significantly
  • Most engagements will be greenfield, with the bulk of them would being predominantly solo engagements, being part of a wider project (i.e could be component of wider programme)
  • The successful candidate would not be joining a "finished article" and must be happy to be in it from the beginning at ground level and be a contributor to direction of product and strategy area.

  • Salary: £90,000 - £110,000 (this will depend on experience)
  • Performance based Bonus @ between 15%-20%
