We have a new opportunity available for a Linux Systems Engineer to join a highly technical and dynamic software as a service company.

This brand new role has been formed due to business expansion, and is a chance for you to work alongside exceptional professionals in the development and testing teams, in an environment which is constantly evolving.

As you will be the sole member of the operations function, you will need to have a wealth of experience working with all aspects of Linux Infrastructure.

We are looking for engineers who have fluency in scripting languages (Bash, Python), have monitored large database environments, have experience with networking fundamentals and have experience with virtualization concepts as you play a vital role in the delivery and management of global infrastructure services to the company.

However, you will also be working in an environment which is fully automated - our client hates doing things more than once so prior experience working with the latest approaches is necessary. They already have a full continuous integration and testing chain in place through Jenkins, so are looking to you to maintain this process.

Ultimately, this is an opportunity for Systems Engineers who do not shy away from a challenge as you will be tasked with shaping the infrastructure, and helping to streamline processes to help our client reach their end goal of continuous delivery.

On a separate note: with offices currently based in Croydon, but moving to London Bridge at the end of summer, we are looking for engineers who can be flexible with location. Our client does offer flexibility in terms of remote working possibilities and hours, however, applicants need to be able to work from both places.

If you consider yourself an engineer who has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of Linux Engineering with the desire to be responsible for an entire infrastructure get in contact now to hear further details on this one.

Key Technology: Linux, KVM, Puppet, Jenkins, ELK, AWS, Python.

Please note that no terminology in this advert is intended to discriminate on the grounds of age, and we confirm that we will gladly accept applications from individuals of any age for this role. LinuxRecruit is a leading open source specialist and provides services as an agency and an employment business.
