DevOps

A leading e-commerce organisation in Central London is currently looking for Lead DevOps Engineers to help design, and shape the direction of the business during their massive digital transformation.  

This would be a fantastic opportunity for candidates who have a strong background in Linux Systems Engineering who are looking to go into a more senior position and take responsibility for projects as well as supporting and coaching other colleagues. 

Although this is a fully hands on position, being a team lead for our client means you will be responsible for mentoring other team members, as well as ensuring that your team is efficiently designing, building and maintaining a scalable platform.

In terms of technology, you will be challenged with building scalable and reliable solutions using the latest automation and deployment tools including Chef, Jenkins, AWS, Git, Terraform to name a few. 

So why should you apply? 

This role is suitable for candidates who believe in the need to automate everything. Automation is a fundamental part of this role, meaning extensive experience working with configuration management tools is required. Our client is using Chef in production, meaning prior experience with  Chef is essential.  

You will be working in a DevOps environment, being fully emerged in Agile projects and working towards continuous delivery and continuous integration pipelines, bridging the gap between development and operations.

As our client is currently in the midst of a transformation - this is a fantastic time to get on board to really get involved within the direction the business moves. They are looking for forward thinking individuals, who are able to bring new ideas on how to increase pace, and improve quality.

If you are looking to work in a fast-paced environment for an expanding technology function that challenges you on a daily basis apply now!
