The role

As a cloud-native DevOps Lead, you will work within a feature team to deliver business outcomes. 

Your focus will be around building a globally distributed, PCI DSS compliant platform using GCP and Aliyun, whilst guiding and upskilling internal teams using best practices for building, deployment and scaling applications in the cloud. As we are a Financial Service company, security is at the core of our practices and automation. 

You will bring to the team a level of expertise in operational platform management, developing observability and detection capabilities that will decrease time to discover problems and allow our teams to increase stability and not sacrifice agility or security. 

A key aspect of this position will be building consensus amongst DevOps Engineers in different feature teams about the tools and practices we use, and evolving that consensus into agreed standards.

  • A passion for automation and repeatable processes.
  • Deep exposure to AWS, GCP and/or Aliyun cloud.
  • Broad experience with modern CI/CD pipelines.
  • Knowledge of components and technologies in a modern web stack including Java, Kotlin, Python and React.
  • Good understanding of containerisation including Docker, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes.
  • A fervent enthusiasm for infrastructure-as-code.
  • A love for operational metrics including MTTD & MTTR and the capabilities and practices that allow these to be continually improved upon.
  • Excellent understanding of OS, platform and network security practices, patterns and frameworks.
  • Network topology and infrastructure architectures on Linux based platforms.
  • Operational tooling such as New Relic, StatsD, Elk, Datadog, Prometheus.
