This is an awesome opportunity for you the DevOps Engineer to join a fast paced and fast-growing organization who are redefining their industry.

You will be:

  • Splitting the data warehouse to better protect our data
  • Evolving the approach to ETL
  • Bringing the existing infrastructure under source control (so far in terraform and salt)
  • Unifying the infrastructure monitoring

Future work is likely to include moving to containerized services in place of managing differentiated servers, optimising our use of Elastic MapReduce, and building out the infrastructure for truly isolated testing and development environments.

Are you the right person?

  • Are you comfortable jumping in at the deep end?
  • Do you thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment?
  • Are you tactical, organized and detail-orientated?

The skills you will need:

  • Manage existing Infrastructure
  • Implement and maintain infrastructure automation
  • Ensure adequate monitoring
  • Disseminate skills, best practices, and incident response protocols to the engineering team (with as much management support as you want)
  • No direct people management responsibility
  • Able to estimate effort and tasks that go into work
  • Able to communicate the need for infrastructural changes
  • Able to build up skills in the rest of engineering
  • Able to prioritize the minimum valuable work
  • Able to avoid creating technical debt
  • Comfortable voicing opinions, and surfacing problems
  • Comfortable participating in team discussions
  • Comfortable telling management about problems

It would great if you also had:

  • 5 years’ experience working directly on DevOps
  • Really understanding of what’s happening inside computers when code is executing or data is moving
