I have a very cool position available for a leading Tech company based in Manchester City Centre who are looking for a DevOps Engineer to Analyse, Define & Drive modern DevOps practices across the company. They do not expect you to have experience in all the specific technologies listed, but they do use them all on a daily basis and as such you must have a strong desire to improve yourself and learn from others as well as self learning.
As DevOps Engineer you'll be designing and developing maintainable, adaptable, testable & scalable technical infrastructure & solutions using the best and most suitable tech available to you. Reporting to the Technical Director, you will work with other specialists spanning Software Engineering & Front End Development to define standards, create re-usable frameworks & products, as well as being hands-on to drive your specialism. Since much of the role of an operations developer is largely at the beginning of a product's lifecycle, you'll be given the unique opportunity of getting involved in new products on a regular basis.
One of the most significant aspects of the role will be to ensure the product teams as a whole can and, most importantly, are comfortable managing the operational concerns for their products. In this manner, you'll be responsible for driving the DevOps culture within the company, setting direction, mentoring & upskilling teams to self manage. By leading the DevOps specialism, learning new technologies won't scare you in the slightest and you'll always be up-to-date with new tools & techniques in the industry, and working continually to improve our delivery practises for future products.
* Thorough understanding of continuous delivery principals and experience creating the infrastructure and processes required to support this such as: * Continuous integration (TeamCity, VSTS, Jenkins, CodeBuild) * Testing (separate environments, unit/acceptance testing) * Making releases as simple as possible (Octopus, CodeDeploy) * Know what it means to adopt a DevOps culture and the different roles an operations specialist can play across different teams and products. * Experience in building web solutions on a range of infrastructure solutions and platforms (AWS, Azure, Heroku, VMware). * Experience building secure Windows and Linux (Ubuntu, RHEL) servers. * Solid networking knowledge. * Experience working with a range of web and database servers - IIS, Apache, Nginx, Haproxy, SQL Server, MySQL * Comfortable in scripting and programming languages (Bash, Powershell, NodeJS, C#, Ruby). * Understanding and experience of various automation practises (inf-as-code, immutable inf, provisioning, config management, auto-scaling). * Pragmatic secure-first design and the ability to provide confident security-related advise. * Designing and implementing disaster recovery solutions, effective monitoring, and incident response systems. * Excellent communication and the ability to be "always approachable".
* An understanding of the current and future role of containers (Docker) and "serverless" (Lambda). * Experience with infrastructure-as-code (Terraform, CloudFormation). * Previously worked as part of, or closely with, a product development team. * Experience working in an agile and/or lean environment. * Attendance at community tech events
You may think you know all about this type of role, but trust me this one IS different so if you want to help drive, mould and shape the way they work then do not delay in calling Gill Twist on (Apply online only) or please apply online
