We're looking for a passionate and innovative Senior DevOps engineer to lead the DevOps function of one of the fastest growing start-ups in London. Since their launch in 2012 our partner has seen tremendous success rates tripling in value each year for 4 consecutive years and placed in the top 20 fastest growing companies in Europe. They've combined a series of verticals to achieve success through building an entire online community/Social media platform.

On the front end, they are a creative multi-national e-commerce organisation with customers across 97 countries but on the back end they're a digital, technically focused organisation using contemporary and cutting edge tech.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a Lead or Senior engineer to define the roadmap for DevOps engineering. You'll lead a small tightly knit team of engineers and will be responsible for administering, scaling and improving the platform while ensuring it's highly available with minimum down time. You'll reply on your experience of supporting high traffic applications with high availability and robust infrastructure in order to do so and will be well versed in designing, building and operating Linux and AWS infrastructure.

In return for your DevOps skills you'll be given a very competitive salary, shares in a multimillion pound organisation that continues to grow, private healthcare, free breakfast, flexible working, a collaborative environment and loads more. You'll also be given the freedom to implement new technology, recruit new talent (one of the first things you'll do) and take ownership of the DevOps tooling and practices.

From day one you'll work with: AWS, Puppet, Docker, Linux, Jenkins, MySQL, MongoDB, Graphite/Grafana, NGINX, and Vagrant.

This opportunity will allow you to build a world-class, innovative social commerce platform while working in a collaborative environment and for a company that values technical experience. If you're looking to step up to a leading position but want to remain fully hands-on and have a genuine impact on a product being used by thousands all over over the world get in touch for details.
