You will also be involved within projects such as introducing a Private Cloud Infrastructure with Openstack, automation of day to day tasks, and optimisation of monitoring solutions to name a few.

If the technology and projects you will be working on isn't enough of a reason to join, you will also be joining a company that prides themselves on their fantastic company culture, which has the feel of a start-up, but with the funding of a globally renowned organisation.

In this position you will be continually learning and evolving your technology stack, and will be encouraged to participate in internal and external events with monthly Tech Talks, Hackathons and Workshops.
