Role type: Permanent (full-time preferred; part-time possible)
Flexibility: Extremely flexible + family orientated working hours

A fantastic opportunity has arisen in a software development and services house based in London. They produce a range of products such as automation tools for their clients which include large enterprises and government bodies for their data integration, intelligence, RPA and testing automation. Their products range from standalone, to fully managed service platforms in the cloud.

The company is proud of their own software tool suites that are proven highly effective in their niches. They aim to roll these out to broader markets and are looking for talented individuals to help them achieve their growth plans for the future.

The company works with a variety of different technologies to cater to their clients: Java, JavaScript, Groovy, Angular (Potentially contemplating Vue and React), MySQL/MariaDB, Maven, Git, Ansible, HTML/CSS, Python, Google Suite, AWS, Azure, NodeJS, Elastic, Grafana, Kibana, Docker, Ubuntu, Centos, Windows Server, Jenkins, Git, Nexus, Eclipse and RCP.


They are looking to speak to people who…

  • Is a DevOps expert or has the potential to be one in the future
  • Is willing to work on a diverse set of projects and is willing to be involved throughout the whole lifecycle. (BID to BAU)
  • Who strives for high quality and will go the extra to deliver to clients (both internally and externally)
  • Has the ability to switch from a laidback day-to-day environment to meeting and exceeding aggressive targets when it counts
  • People who want flexibility to be able to work remotely or odd hours when not needed in the office
  • Someone who wants ownership in what they create, technically, strategically and financially

What you can expect:

  • DevOps best practices and continuous improvement
  • To be the expert in your infrastructure and cloud projects
  • Automation and the automation of business processes
  • Adding and upgrading to the overall efficiency of our services and offerings

You will be most suited to these roles if you have:

  • AWS and/or Azure (both ideally but the concepts translate)
  • Managing and deploying scalable service-based application stacks
  • SecOps concepts (key management, intrusion detection, firewalls, etc.)
  • Scripting Languages (e.g. Python Bash/Korn, Groovy, etc.)
  • Linux (especially Centos/RHEL and Ubuntu)
  • Maintaining databases and installing (RDBMS and T-SQL; MySQL/MariaDB especially but Postgres, Sybase, MS SQL, and Oracle all valuable on different clients)
  • Infrastructure, virtualization and containerisation (Azure, Azure Stack, K8s, Docker, KVM, VMWare, Open Stack etc.)
  • Release management & configuration (DevOps tools such as Jenkins, Vagrant, Ansible, Packer and Nexus)
  • Operational management tools (ElasticSearch, Kibana, Grafana, Matomo, Telegraf, etc.)
  • Source control (Git and the Git Flow approach)

If you are interested in working with a close-knit team of amazing people who are passionate about technology. You'll get the chance to learn a lot, and also you’ll have the chance to have a laugh in the process. There are also unlimited caffeinated drinks, regular pizza , (choose a side: pineapple or not!), Mario Kart and frequent table tennis tournaments.

If you enjoy installing Linux distros, complaining about Azure API shortcomings, arguing about why colleagues should or should not buy an RTX 2080 Ti, can tolerate egg-based memes, enjoy watching or participating in eating challenges, and generally want to automate the heck out of everything then we're probably for you.

Candidates must be able to pass UK Security Clearance due to their work with Government clients.
