DevOps Manager (50% hands on)
Contract | £550 - £700 per day | Central London | City of London
With one of the most advanced technology stacks, and Scale not often seen, this technology organisation in London is looking for a DevOps Engineering Manager to come and lead a very talented team of individuals and build from there…
The role will be a 50%-50% split between Hands on and Managerial expertise. These percentage figures are of completely subjective and would mean different things to different companies but for this one we need someone experienced with both.
Although a 50/50 split may appear to suggest more of a Lead role than Management, the core emphasis is someone who has very good Management expertise. Someone who can review code, do 1-2-1's, performance reviews and be involved in the high level Architecture. Importantly, you must also have been part of the hiring process previously, building out DevOps teams.
In addition to being a great manager, of great engineers, you'll also be required to have extensive technical ability in parallel with your team. You'll be someone with second-to-non knowledge of DevOps principles and Site Reliability Engineering. You won't want to be in a managerial role where you're paper-pushing, and stakeholder managing all day. You still want to be where the action is, at the coal face.
We require someone who has a deep understanding of DevOps Engineering, who understands Containers, CI/CD principles, has a deep understanding of how Kubernetes/Mesos/Docker Swarm etc are shaping the industry. The technology stack currently includes Kubernetes, AWS, Istio and plenty more - with you taking charge of bringing on the technologies you see fit as the project and role evolves.
The team you'll be leading are responsible for building a next generation platform, for each of the groups brands to build upon. The platform is currently in Beta stage, and has been rolled out to 2 European countries, however, the next challenge is the scalability globally, and then the constant evolution of the platform.
If you're genuinely curious about technology, have a track record of successfully building and managing teams, and want to work in a collaborative environment with like minded individuals please do get in touch.
You'll also struggle to find a better culture in London. This is a bona fide great tech company culture, over and above having a ping-pong table and casual dress.
