Job Description

Senior Site Reliability Engineer (AWS Kubernetes MySQL CI/CD) Pioneering technology-powered scale-up is seeking a standout technologist to advocate an environment of high quality development, guide teams and make an impact.

As the sole Senior Site Reliability Engineer, this is a fantastic opportunity to shape and direct processes company wide, showcasing your expertise across improving the security, reliability and performance of their innovative platform.

The company's growth has skyrocketed since its inception in 2015 and has worked with household-name brands, globally. Their success is compounded by their cultural value; you'll join a vibrant, fun work place with an action-packed social calendar with everything from karaoke to sports clubs and gaming nights.

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer you'll partner with an upbeat, dynamic engineering team and will take ownership of identifying opportunities for improving how the teams deliver software into production, as well as innovating release tools or how infrastructure is managed. You'll also take the lead on proactively identifying opportunities for improvement across the public facing product, as well as security concerns and troubleshooting when appropriate.

In this Senior Site Reliability Engineer role you'll use an up-to-the-minute, diverse tech stack; a Symfony 2 application deployed to AWS, managed by Terraform and SaltStack with multiple releases per week. You'll spearhead a transition to Kubernetes, using other modern technologies like Docker and ELK, React on the frontend and PHP Symfony on the backend - so there are plenty of opportunities to develop and refine your technical skills.

This is a high-visibility, high-impact role where a confident, self-assured communicator will excel. You'll be bridging gaps between technical realities of development, aligning them with the business objectives and will step into a technical leadership position when required.

*Please note: this company is able to conduct a remote interview and onboarding process during the current social distancing measures. You'll join funky, modern South London offices in due course, where you can enjoy a fully-stocked kitchen, free weekly massages and quarterly surprise office outings, plus continued flexible work opportunities, including up to three days a week working from home*

*You have a strong software development / technical infrastructure background
*You have experience of designing production strength, scalable applications with high traffic architectures
*You have experience working with complex SaaS platforms with high availability
*You have AWS experience
*You have strong knowledge of Kubernetes, Docker, MySQL
*You have good working knowledge of Automation tools; Terraform, SaltStack, Jenkins, Git (and CI/CD experience)
*You have proven success as a motivated, proactive leader
*You're a passionate technologist, keen to develop your skills and keep pace with emerging technologies

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer you'll earn a highly competitive salary (to £120k) plus a comprehensive benefits package, including individual training budget, mentoring programme, generous holiday allowance, enhanced parental leave and more.
