Are you an AWS enthusiast looking to shape the future direction of DevOps strategy on behalf of a world-class SaaS provider who are making huge waves within their industry?

Look no further.

I'm looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to drive DevOps best practice into all areas of this business - preferring standards and automation. Working closely with TechOps, InfoSec and Development teams to deliver leading class solutions working on a combination of long-term project work and on-going BAU support.

Their DevOps environment? So.. They been using docker compose to manage their microservices, but have already begun moving towards AWS ECS. These services are defined using CDK, the containers are deployed to ECR, and the runtime is managed in ECS, backed by an autoscaling EC2 group. They already have some of their services migrated into ECS and running in prod and their observations have been that performance-wise it's on another level entirely with their goal as a business to complete migrating all of their microservices into ECS. Technically, we are looking for people with strong programming and scripting experience (Ideally C# or Python) and some experience with Infrastructure as Code (Cloud Formation, AWS, CDK) Importantly - you will be able to deliver code solutions that are clean, tested and highly scalable - always following SOLID principles.

Who are they? These guys have built a world-class software as a service platform that's absolutely disrupted its industry. It's used by some of the biggest firms within their sector, on a global scale and they're absolutely at the top of their game. They move fast and develop enterprise-scale products quickly in a very Agile yet truly scalable way. They're entirely Cloud based and have partnered with AWS for the last decade. They have around 200 people in tech; their Engineering teams are organised into Squads and they currently have around 15-30 squads made up of Engineers, QA, Product Owners and Architects. Due to an sheer increase in projects and bringing on board a plethora of new customers, we're looking to grow the tech team by 30 people imminently.

What are we looking for in this person? Firstly and most importantly.. you will absolutely live and breathe AWS and be able to play a key part in their DevOps strategy - essentially this is your chance to be part of their evolution. You will lead from the front and absolutely thrive from working in a very fast-paced environment where requirements can often change at a moments notice.. and you'll do it with a smile of your face! You will be energetic, technically inquisitive, and essentially have a can-do attitude. We are looking for positive individuals here who want to be part of a genuinely lovely culture and bunch of people.

Why join? Well, they have really already hired some of the brightest, technical minds in the industry so its your chance to rub shoulders with and learn from the best techies out there and show no signs of slowing down. They're also genuinely a lovely bunch of people! It's a collaborative "no blame" environment and they're are definitely no egos and no hierarchy here and it's the kind of place where people work really hard yet know how to have a laugh at the same time, working collectively towards the same end goal.. absolutely shaking up their industry. Oh.. They're also well recognised. Part of the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 and proudly named one of the UK's Top Cloud Businesses.
