Why DevOps? Time is money. DevOps seeks to shorten the development lifecycle, whilst still delivering on features, fixes and updates. DevOps has slowly been shaping the software world for the last few years. From 2015 to 2016 DevOps adoption increased by 8%, a figure that continues to increase year on year and experts expect to explode in 2019.
This organisation is a UK leader in large scale digital solutions who are looking to hire skilled DevOps engineers of all levels. The roles are part of an enormous recruitment drive aimed at improving the way they deliver content to their enterprise customers.
The roles are technically UK-wide and will see you join an embedded engineering function tasked with putting software engineering and professionalism at the heart of delivery. In terms of customers, you will work on-site with enterprise customers to achieve their digital transformation. Not only will these projects include collaboration with other talented engineers, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects. Giving you the chance to have exposure to a broad arsenal of technology.
In terms of requirements, the ideal candidate would be able to offer a range of skills. However rather than just regurgitate the Job description, the client has highlighted to me some key skills they are looking for.
Containers - Experience working with Docker, Kubernetes or Docker swarm is preferred. However if you've used others, get in touch.
Cloud - You will have a good understanding of cloud and architecting for the cloud, as well as understanding how to best shape the services we are delivering. Therefore working with the likes of AWS and Azure is ideal.
Configuration Management Tools - From Puppet to Ansible, if you've used them I want to hear from you.
Eager to learn new skills - My client prides themselves on being able to deliver on award winning T training. Learning new skills and technology keeps us keen and adaptable. Which ultimately gives you wider career opportunities.
In terms of culture, you will struggle to find somewhere better. Year on year my client invests thousands into training their employees from the latest and greatest tech to leadership skills. Importantly, this is available to all. Which gives you the chance to cross-train and work on them technologies you have been itching to implement.
They offer a base salary of up to £75,000 (DOE) as well as the opportunity to work remotely when not on-site. In addition pension, healthcare and expenses.
