Senior Computing Systems Engineer

Permanent  |  £45000 - £55000 per annum + 30% Pension, 32 days PTO  |  South East

One of the UK's top higher education institutions is looking for a Senior Computer Systems Engineer. You'll be working to ensure the smooth running and development of their essential systems

You will be getting stuck-in with activities such as user management, building/deploying software, performance monitoring and availability monitoring and incident response. Your work will be focused predominantly on the Linux environment, Linux systems administration and servers, so experience in these areas and High Performance Computing (HPC) is essential. You will also be working to automate repetitive tasks. In addition, experience in Ansible, Chef, puppet and Git is desirable but not required. Working knowledge of cloud platforms (AWS, Azure and GCP) would be a plus but again not essential. Some knowledge of python scripting would also be useful.

You will be joining a collaborative team of six, maintaining, improving and developing the IT operations and systems of the institution while they carry on their essential research, studies and experiments.

You will be rewarded here with a flexible hybrid working schedule, and a copious amount of time off with 32 days of annual leave plus 7 shutdown days. In addition, the institution will contribute a massive 30% to your pension, so you won't have to worry about retirement. You will also have access to the institutions' world-class facilities such as their leisure centre. There are yearly salary increases so you won't be stuck on the same pay. The annual bonus will also ensure you are more than compensated for your work.
