Job Description

I am working with a public-sector organisation in London who have recently brought development of their internal systems in-house. They are looking to add a DevOps Engineer into their team to move to the next stage of an ambitious and large-scale systems transformation project.

This company was reliant on an off the shelf product for about 20 years, which has had the same features and usability with no improvements. The third party that provided this product hadn't modernised the product for years and my client had struggled to hire people with experience in the development language they designed it in.

To deliver the improvements demanded by the business, it was decided to build an in-house product to replace this system and they wanted to develop this in house to avoid these problems going forwards.

They have recently released their minimum viable product and are now at the stage of the project where they need to develop further parts to this product to be at a stage where the new system is at a like for like with the old one. The final stage of the project is then to make improvements that departments in this company have been requesting for some years.

The DevOps Engineer role will involve you working predominantly with the Solutions Architect and Dev teams to manage and configure the tools and technologies to make the Development teams as efficient as they can be.

My client doesn't expect you to know everything - this is an environment where learning is encouraged. But they do expect you do be an experienced developer to have the right underlying learning attitude. My client encourages personal development and aim to grow the team alongside the digital solutions.

The core knowledge you need will be an understanding of the following:-

  • Kubernetes and Docker for running our services.

  • Ansible and Jenkins for deploying our applications.

  • Prometheus for monitoring.

  • Ansible for configuration management.

  • Azure for most of our infrastructure.

  • Grafana for internal dashboards.
