Job Requirements

Become part of the Team

Our DevOps specialists work within our development pods, enabling development through the automation and creation of tools and process to facilitate service delivery.

You may be working to implement a CI / CD pipeline across any of the major cloud providers or looking at implementation of monitoring or alerting process for a new service about to go into production.

Client enablement is a huge part of our offering. When we deliver our new digital services, we make sure our clients can maintain them, and so you could find yourself coaching the end client in how they operate their new service.

We emphasise the Dev in DevOps. For us it's about putting the right tools and processes in place, not running the operations of a service.

As a DevOps specialist, you will find yourself working on exciting projects, across a range of sectors and technology sets.

The team will be looking to you to put the right things in place to facilitate the delivery of the service.

We want enablers. This isn't about you owning a toolkit but being an integral teammate. That means being a player-coach developing the skills of your colleagues and evangelising the DevOps approach.

Likewise, they'll invest in you, so you can learn new development skills or perhaps assisting in the implementation of a test automation framework.

It's all about crafting a highly skilled performing team. We'll make an investment in you - making you a consultant with a highly diverse and applicable skillset, but we'll also need you to invest in us, helping us develop our DevOps approach and capability.
