We've recently been announced as one of the fastest growing tech startup's in London - http://www.techcityuk.com/blog/2017/02/future-fift...
We're looking for an experienced DevOps Engineer who specialises in all things AWS.
We've had a big funding round in the middle of last year and our technical team is growing rapidly (from 4 to 16 people so far). We need to bring our technology and infrastructure up-to-date to meet the business's ambitions for the next few years. This includes migration to the Cloud (currently in progress) and implementing a React SPA as our customer facing site (with all the architecture changes that come with this).
We are a team of 16 looking to grow to over 20 immediately. To do this we need a dedicated DevOps Engineer to manage our infrastructure and build the development, testing and deployment processes for our expanding technical team.
You're someone who's smart, organised, motivated and gets things done. You want to work in a startup environment, because you like the idea of doing a bit of everything and taking ownership of what you work on. You have ideas about everything, and you're not afraid to argue your point (while respecting everyone else's of course). You're constantly thinking "how can we do this better?".
You're passionate about:
- creating robust, flexible and performant infrastructure using the latest technology and best practices
- making the development workflow as smooth and efficient as possible through automation and tooling
- creating and managing effective continuous integration & delivery/deployment processes
- being an integral part of the development process, not just a system administrator, and working in a collaborative technical team
YOUR SKILL SET
- Expert in provisioning, operating and managing all things AWS (we make use of ELB, EC2, ECS and ECR, RDS, Redshift, CloudFormation and many more...), ideally 5+ years experience, minimum 3 years.
- Expert in Docker based systems
- GNU/Linux system administration and networking
- Expert in CI/CD workflows and tooling
- Experience with configuration management (ideally Ansible) and IaC (ideally CloudFormation)
- Excellent knowledge of Python, with development experience
- Experience with monitoring and logging tools (e.g New Relic, Datadog, Sentry, Kibana)
- An excellent understanding of high availability, load balancing and service discovery concepts and technologies
- A computing or software engineering degree. In the absence of one we expect you to show that you've taken steps to fill this gap in your training/knowledge.
Nice to have experience with:
- E-commerce websites
