We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals who are as passionate about DevOps approaches outside of work as much as they are in. We need someone who wants to be involved in automating everything! You would be working closely with development teams, finding out new ways of doing things, especially regarding cloud technologies.

  • Excellent Unix scripting skills and ideally some development knowledge in Ruby, Python, Perl or similar.
  • Knowledge of version control systems such as Git is essential.

If successful, you will be heavily involved in the evolution and transformation of the company, whilst also supporting the existing infrastructure and deployments. They are an agile development organisation who are passionate about working collaboratively, favoring communication and team-work over segregation of duties. If you get enjoyment out of solving difficult problems, completing tasks and have a desire to improve things continuously then you may well be the person we’re looking for!
