DevOps Engineer

We are seeking a DevOps Engineer like you, it’s a unique opportunity to get a Centre of Engineering Excellence off the ground, influence its evolution and grow your career.

We’re following the lead of some of the world’s biggest tech companies in solving the huge complexities of massive-scale, user-driven systems.

We're embarking on a new chapter in our architectural thinking focused on building elastically scaling systems to provide an outstanding experience to our members.

Shape and be part of our new vision, while having a healthy work-life balance.

At Nationwide we openly put our 15 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it’s doing, is member focused.

  • You may be required to work on call on the rare occasion.
  • If we receive a high volume of relevant applications, we may close the advert earlier than the advertised date, so please apply as soon as you can.
  • What you’ll be doing

    We are looking for skilled engineers to join our expanding CI-CD team for a new enterprise messaging platform utilising Kubernetes, Kafka, MongoDB and many other technologies.

    If you have a proven track record of delivering quality CI-CD solutions for highly available, high throughput, distributed, scalable and secure systems, then this could be the role for you.

    While the role is primarily CI-CD we are all up for flexibility, so should you wish to undertake application development at a later point we can offer that too, beneficial skills to have are Java, Kafka, microservices, API development, test automation and NoSQL database experience.

    We'll expect you to get stuck in and have a go, knowing that sometimes to fail fast is to learn fast.

    Day to day :

  • Develop and maintain pipelines across multiple projects and environments
  • Co-ordination of Continuous Build / Integration process across multiple workstreams
  • Ensure continuous release of changes into higher environments as and when needed
  • Management of applications while in Development on a day-to-day basis
  • Production deployments
  • Work with Dev Lead and Architects to review and refine as needed

  • Strong experience in AWS cloud environments such as configuring load balancers, networking and security mechanisms
  • Experience building CI-CD pipelines from scratch and deploying always-on systems
  • Hands on experience of CI-CD tools e.g. GitHub, Terraform, Jenkins and deployment tools such as Harness / Spinnaker etc.
  • Strong experience with CI-CD security such as usage of secure secrets storage, container signing etc.
  • Good experience with Terraform, Groovy, Helm etc.
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes i.e. EKS, OpenShift
  • Ability to work effectively in an agile team
  • Strong communication skills to engage stakeholders at a variety of levels
  • Financial services experience is desirable but not essential
  • We’re also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of so many different kinds of people, so we want our employees to be just as diverse.

    We’d love to hear about :

  • Your values, and what makes you who you are
  • How you’d make a difference to our members in this role
  • We know applying for jobs can sometimes feel like you’re sending an application into a black hole. We review each application individually.

    So, it’s a good idea to call out your most relevant experience on your application to give yourself the best chance.
