The Role
We are seeking a new member of the DevOps team to provide support to our expanding team of developers and help manage our growing server infrastructure. Central to our service is the digital quality analysis performed by our server-side software and the distributed "Digital Users" that gather the data we analyse. We need someone to work closely with our developers, providing support for the tools they use every day. We use the latest technologies so you won't be afraid of learning new skills and pushing hardware and software to their limits. Managing a Linux system from the command line should be second nature to you.
 
This is a wide-ranging role - you should have a good foundation in Linux and some experience in working with code, either as a programmer or as systems support for programmers. If you have an appreciation for automation, CI and deployment tooling we want to speak to you!
 
Key Responsibilities
As a member of the DevOps team you'll work with all aspects of IT infrastructure in the company. In particular you'll work closely with our software developers to ensure they have the tools they need to do their job and also liaise with the software test team to implement Continuous Integration and Delivery tools.
 
Performance, scalability, resilience and security are crucial to us so you'll be thinking of this constantly and improving where you can. Some occasional out of hours work will be required for upgrades, maintenance and major incident support.
 
You will be responsible for:
  • Implementing and supporting the software development tool stack
  • Contributing to automating the build, test, packaging and deployment pipeline
  • Supervised deployment of software to production and non-production environments
  • Implementing and supporting of internal software stacks such as monitoring and logging software
  • General system administration tasks on remote and local dedicated servers and cloud infrastructure
Skills profile
We're looking for talent and potential, and for someone who is able to work well with the existing DevOps and software development teams. You don't need to know everything but you need to be willing and able to learn what you don't know.
 
Essential skills we’re looking for include:
  • Linux system administration
  • Programming experience (E.g. Python, Erlang, Perl, Javascript, etc)
  • TCP/IP networking
The following skills are also desirable:
  • Configuration management
