Job Description

Lead DevOps Engineer / Head of Infrastructure (Cloud Ruby Linux Go). Are you an accomplished, process-driven Lead DevOps Engineer looking for an opportunity to head up a growing infrastructure division in one of the largest data-streaming companies in the world? You could be working on technology to help shape the future of the internet.

The tech-driven organisation's core platform is a highly complex distributed real time engine, dedicated to powering technology we use every day such as live chat, real time scoring and location tracking, document sharing, MMO games, eLearning and more.

As a Lead DevOps Engineer you'll make an impact through owning all aspects of the infrastructure services which support the compute capacity, networking and all ancillary services required to power the core services and support the software development lifecycle. You'll have the opportunity to construct an in depth understanding of the product you are working on through end to end involvement from inception to production of consumer apps, with the autonomy to influence development as you see fit.

In this Lead DevOps Engineer role you'll promote the adoption of best practice across your team of talented engineers, inspiring a culture of technical excellence in your work and across the team, ensuring all code created is fit for purpose.

This is an ideal opportunity for a passionate, accomplished technologist to take the next step up in their career, work with diverse, contemporary technology (they are a cloud-native business, with infrastructure written in Ruby and Go) and be an impactful leader.

*Please note: this company is able to conduct an entirely remote interview process during the current social distancing measures*

*You have a strong understanding of large scale operations on public cloud infrastructure (AWS)
*You have an established record of software development in production systems
*You have strong Linux and systems administration skills
*You have experience with open source languages (specifically Ruby and Go is highly advantageous)
*You're an impactful leader who can inspire a team in a positive, constructive way
*Desirable: experience with containerisation / Docker, orchestration with Kubernetes or similar frameworks

As the Lead DevOps Engineer you will earn a highly competitive salary (to £110k) plus a huge range of benefits, including health insurance, gym membership, regular company away days, a healthy holiday allowance and more. The company places high value on employee freedom and responsibility, and flexible work hours.
