Job Details

Senior DevOps Engineer

Location: Glasgow, Glasgow, United Kingdom

Salary: £55k


We're offering the best of both worlds – an agile-by-default, technology-focused working environment combined with the opportunities and benefits of being part of a large organisation.

You must already hold, or be eligible to hold, the appropriate level of UK Security Clearance to be considered.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

As a senior DevOps engineer, you will work closely with developers, other members of the DevOps team, and project stakeholders to produce robust and repeatable infrastructure solutions across a range of platforms, from cloud to bare metal.

As part of our team, your work will include interesting standalone infrastructure projects, not only building infrastructure to facilitate products.

As a senior engineer, you will get the opportunity to contribute towards process and technology choices that help deliver the best solutions for our clients; you will also have opportunities to lead projects and be expected to provide advice and mentoring for more junior colleagues.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

To be successful in this role you will have experience in Linux (RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, firewall/networking configuration).

You will need demonstrable experience in configuration management tooling (Puppet, Ansible, Chef), virtual machine automation tooling (Vagrant, Packer) and programming in dynamic languages (Python, Ruby or similar).

You will have worked with containerisation and container orchestration systems (Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift), cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud Compute, Azure) and continuous integration and build Tools (Jenkins, Maven, Gradle).

Strong communication skills will be required as you will be engaging with internal and external stakeholders.
