Principal DevOps Engineer

Permanent  |  £70000 - £90000 per annum  |  Greater London  |  London

Is this the best DevOps position you'll see in February?

Principal Engineering position within a groundbreaking InsurTech (yep, that is now a thing too) start up, acting as an incubator for a very well known Insurer. What started life initially as just a project, is now turning into a separate entity valued to be worth half a billion pounds in its own right - It's basically insurance, for people who aren't boring.

Working side by side with the Data Engineers and the Data Scientists you'll be next to a wealth of talented and clever individuals with over half of them having PhDs - so maybe you won't be the cleverest in the room for once...

You should look no further if you want to be creating/building something really tangible and entirely within AWS as the company have a Cloud First attitude. The ideal engineer will have the chance to work with all of the following technologies as well as having the chance to learn so much more;

  • AWS
  • Terraform
  • Docker
  • ECS
  • Microservices infrastructure
  • Jenkins
  • Packer to build AMIs
  • Loads more

Another aspect of being the Principal DevOps Engineer will be conversing with the central business and educating/advising them on the benefits of what you and your team are doing. You won't be alone with this and will be joined with the Principal Software Engineer and Data Scientist as well as the Engineering Manager, so don't fret that it will be you VS the World.

What they are creating is truly groundbreaking and in a year's time, you will be able to look back and say that you did that - I'm sure your friends even at that point will still not understand what a DevOps Engineer does.

If successful, you'll be joining a company that truly takes care of you with great benefits that are not just within insurance but within everyday life too.

This role would really suit a Senior and Lead DevOps/Platform Engineers that are looking for a real challenge and want their hands on work to be as technically challenging as possible. If you are looking for a cushty DevOps job where you will be maintaining and provisioning servers only then maybe this is not for you but if you are looking for a rewarding challenge, get in touch today.
