Your new company
I've been engaged on an exclusive project to recruit a Lead DevOps Engineer for a start-up feel business with offices in Poole, Dorset and Central London. It's a technology first organisation involved in concepts around Big Data, Real Time Streaming, Blockchain, AI and alike. This role is due to exponential growth and can be worked from either location providing you can travel to the office 2 or 3 days per week.
Your new role
You'll be joining an established cross disciplinary tech team spanning two locations, with intentions to move internationally in coming years. As a Lead within the DevOps function you will help drive best practice, be involved in technology selections and will be overall responsible for delivering a robust multi-tenant cluster serving customers in production and development systems on AWS. The crux of the role is to automate in order to reduce unnecessary expenditure on tasks.
You will retain a hands-on element to your role, so getting caught up in management or red tape will not be an issue, but you'll be seen as the go-to person in for DevOps (which will be 6 people).
You'll be working with some of the best technical minds in this field locally, running a mature adoption of Agile with a truly progressive build pipeline that is ahead of the competition. As the business grows and takes on new clients, AWS and cloud will take centre stage from the current on-premise requirements. It's a fun, sociable work environment where work life balance is not an abstract culture, and where there is extreme autonomy and trust across the business.
What you'll need to succeed
You may have progressed from a Development or Infrastructure background, we are more concerned with current skills and ability to master the full stack being used within a short period of time, though
FinTech experience will be a big bonus.
As mentioned we're looking for those invested in modern concepts and that want to work in a progressive environment. They run a mix of Red Hat Linux, Bare Metal and Virtual Machines and knowledge scripting/coding would serve you well (Python, Java, Clojure, Bash).
In terms of DevOps tooling they aren't static and utilise the best tool for the job. Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Puppet and Jenkins are likely to be your go-to options.
What you'll get in return
There is good flexibility in the working hours and 2-3 days work from home is available. There's 25 days holiday, childcare vouchers, cycle to work, plus the introduction of private healthcare and other more corporate benefits in time. The main attraction is around getting involved in a business right at the sharp edge of technology, and at a pivotal point as they look to scale.
