Posted 15 days ago


How many job openings give you the chance to carve out your own purpose with a respected brand at the same time as working with customers like The BCC, Accenture and JP Morgan?

An exciting business who has won large commercial contracts is looking to take on their very first DevOps / Platform Engineer. As an award winning start-up they've positioned themselves as the #1 in their niche, now they are in a position to scale and the plan is to move from PHP monolith to MicroServices framework, and you can lead it!!

Working close to London Bridge provides you with excellent transport links, one of the funkiest office spaces you've ever seen (especially if you're a music fan) and top drawer lunch options in Borough Market!

They leverage cloud from Google but most of the engineering team come from an AWS background.

The existing platform is not scalable, it's simply not fit for purpose due to growth.

You will come in to support the build of several back end applications that have large customer bases. Having a DevOps mindset is essential as you will architect and define the DevOps strategy for the business for years to come.

* Ideally you will come with hands on experience with Docker and Kubernetes deployments.
* Strong experience with CI and CD pipelines config.
* TDD and BDD.

With the feeling of a start-up you have the luxury of never being far from the top, but with the added security that this company will only grow from where they are now. Strategic partnerships and strong leadership will see to this.

This is a fantastic role where you will need to have a high degree of energy, enthusiasm and commitment to succeed. The role is a brand new role and will require flexibility and creative thinking skills to relentlessly contribute towards making a truly great service. Candidates must be able to build and maintain good relationships with those around them - at all levels of the business. The client is offering fantastic opportunity for career progression. Client is looking to grow the DevOps team in the next 6 - 12 months.

This will be a very varied role that will appeal to somebody who enjoys juggling a number of different projects and who doesn't mind being interrupted to support a colleague. You need to enjoy being part of the team and a problem solver to get the most out of this role.

Fantastic opportunity to join a great client in a high profile role; shortlisting this week, interviews scheduled for next week, send CV ASAP to avoid disappointment.

If you're in a position related to DevOps now but you feel like you're banging your head against the wall because your boss just doesn't get it, then this should be a serious consideration.

The application process couldn't be easier:

* Screening call + conversation with the technical architect
* Whiteboard session + meeting with CEO

We are expecting a high volume of applications for this role, so don't delay in sending your application.
