Senior Site Reliability Engineer

Permanent  |  £75000 - £85000 per annum  |  Central London  |  City of London

We have an intriguing opening with a global entity looking to roll out true Site Reliability Principals throughout the business. They currently boast one of the very best cross functional engineering teams in London who are largely focused on developing, operating and scaling their global comparison platform built on Kubernetes and AWS through code.

Now, they're building out an SRE arm that will sit as a separate entity but effect, collaborate and improve all technical areas of the business. With a focus on latency, availability, and performance, you'll play a senior role in this build out and will work closely with developers, product teams and platforms to drive this cultural change, setting SLI's & SLO's and evangelising all things Site Reliability Engineering.

Like all true SRE's you'll rely on your knowledge and experience of developing software to manage systems and will be proficient programming in ideally Python, Golang or Ruby. You'll also have a decent level of infrastructure knowledge and will bring some operational Linux and AWS experience to the table.

Finally, you'll be an advocate for best practices and will be just as excited about the methodologies, frameworks and cultural aspects as you are about the tooling. This is an opportunity to really drive change and shape the way an engineering team operates and produces tools, products and services.

Technology wise, you'll be firmly hands-on with the likes of Linux, AWS, GoLang, Terraform, Ansible, Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, Grafana and loads more. Their Devs also work with languages like Clojure, Elixr, and JavaScript so knowledge in those areas is a plus.

In return for your DevOps/SRE smarts you'll also be given the freedom to work remotely (1-2 times a week), yearly bonus and an extensive list of benefits including private healthcare, gym membership, 25-30 days holiday etc.

Please apply for further details.

No visa sponsorship on offer for this one unfortunately.
