Were you once a developer?

Are you using your coding ability to build and maintain infrastructure?

Are you looking to progress into a fully hands on yet leading DevOps position?

If you're a Senior Platform Engineer who loves to code and has a strong level of operational Linux experience, then this ones well worth a read.

This is an opportunity to work for one of the most talked about high-tech startups in London who are genuinely transforming an industry with their real-time, cloud based platform. Not only will you be affecting change in this position but you will also be working in a world class platform team. The calibre of engineer you'll be surrounded by is second to none. You'll be part of a team of smart, talented and intellectually curious people who are constantly looking to learn and collaborate with each other.

We're looking for a skilled and experienced Engineer who is well versed in Linux development, AWS and building Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery pipelines. Currently, they're working with Concourse and Circle CI but experience with thoughtworks GOCD, Jenkins, Teamcity etc. is just as transferable. Ideally, your language of choice will be Python or GO however due to the Microservice nature of the position any modern language will also be suitable.

Alongside your love for coding and cloud engineering you'll have a real interest in Containerisation, and will have a strong level of Docker experience.

Too often, we find ourselves focusing far to hard on tooling and 'sexy tech' we forget about the company's culture, structure and way of working but here there's a great balance. In return for your expert DevOps skills, you'll be given a very social and engaging environment with true autonomy and exposure to some advanced and sophisticated ways of working.

You'll also be given the opportunity to fill a more senior position and be involved in the architecture discussion and strategic decision making (although being fully hands on). You'll have real flexibility in working patterns, a modern approach to management and an opportunity to make a change.
