Job Description

A successful and growing technology business is seeking to add a passionate DevOps / Linux Systems Engineer to their team (working from home) due to growth.

Working closely with two highly experienced DevOps Architects, the successful candidate will be tasked with providing high quality services (pre-sales, implementation and post-implementation support) of complex systems for a variety of customers from social media platforms to banking systems.

In order to be suitable for this role, you must have strong Linux administration and automation skills (Ansible preferred), some AWS / Google / Azure experience as well as a degree in Computer Science (or similar subject such as Physics, Maths or Engineering).

Any exposure to Cassandra or Kafka would be considered highly beneficial, but not essential as you will receive full training and become certified as part of the onboarding process.

The ideal candidate will come from a development / DevOps background with some exposure to hardware management (Kickstart, Cobbler), configuration management (Puppet, Chef, Ansible), monitoring and alerting systems (Nagios, Prometheus, Grafana, DataDog) and Scripting (Bash, Python, Ruby, Perl), but these are not essential.

Excellent communication skills are required as you will be interacting with both technical and non-technical individuals. This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly skilled technical professional in a growing business. This DevOps / Systems Engineer role is paying up to £70,000 plus benefits including 25 days holiday, Pension, training on cutting edge technology.
