Our team maintains and continually develops a CI/CD pipeline and other associated tooling to help manage a large estate of containers running in Open Shift. Working within the DevOps team you will define the strategic direction of the platform whilst working with architects and system designers to define high-level solutions. You'll also be creating DevOps scripts, supporting monitoring tools integration as well automating where possible through the use of various technologies.


Exposure to a range of DevOps tools is essential to be able to excel in this role:



  • Outstanding RedHat/ Open Shift skills

  • Excellent Jenkins and Chef exposure (build delivery automation pipelines and deploy / make configuration changes)



  • Container experience with Docker/ Kubernetes

  • AWS exposure essential and detailed development level (Lambda Code, EC2, VCP)

  • Excellent coding ability in Java, Python, Shell, Bash etc

  • Excellent stakeholder management and communication skills

  • Leadership/ mentoring experience

Our values inform the foundations of our relationships with customers and clients, but they also shape how we measure and reward the performance of our colleagues. Simply put, success is not just about what you achieve, but about how you achieve it.
