Are you an experienced Lead DevOps Engineer? Do you live and breathe Container environments using tools such as Docker and Kubernetes? Are you confident with scaling architecture to meet global demand? Then read on, this is the role for you...

Some of their early customers being Facebook and construction giant Balfour Beatty and with other clients such as Coca Cola, ShopDirect and VMware, they are certainly in a great place as a business and are currently scaling up to meet the requirements of their ever-growing list of enterprise-size clients.
You will join a team of creative engineers who are passionate about their craft from the ?rst meta tag, down to the last pixel and believe sweating the small stu? is what makes a beautiful product that exceeds user expectation. Right from the start they have been focused on building a team, not just a product. You will get a lot of responsibility and ownership from day 1 and you will be someone who is not afraid to challenge other team members to get to the best solution. They believe that everyone can be the best at something, and in teaching the others around us.

Coaching and mentoring junior, mid-level, and senior team members.
Mindfulness of scaling architecture to meet global demand.
Enthusiasm around DevOps and a keen desire to get other people involved.
A sense of ownership across platforms and environments.
Out of hours debugging when an emergency arises and you’re the only person on this planet that can ?x it.

- Desire for a hands on approach of teaching from the front.
- Passion for developer enablement - creating a team focused on supporting all engineers.
