You need to be the kind of person who finds the idea of responsibility and radical means of working exciting rather than terrifying. You are interested in picking up and mastering new technologies and are keen to learn as much as possible. You need to be prepared to ask challenging questions of yourself and others (why are we doing it this way? Why are we doing it at all? If I can prove this is easier, will you folks try it this way?). You should have a highly developed sense of collaboration – doesn’t mean you need to be a touchy-feely extrovert, but that you know sharing information, ideas and support is essential to commercial success.
This role is Operational in nature, but with a DevOps bias, and has plenty of interest and scope. You'll be creating and designing new infrastructure to meet our growing demands, and improving our existing operational infrastructure. This will involve provisioning IT systems in both Cloud and Hosted (hybrid) environments, using automated provisioning and configuration management tools.
You will be responsible for all aspects of the operational systems including availability, reliability, performance, monitoring and security. Additional responsibilities include overall health monitoring and regular systems maintenance tasks, making use of automation wherever possible. We have high standards for our computer systems as well as our employees: our systems are secure, reliable, and available, and must function at scale; our employees are super smart, driven to serve customers, and fun to work with.
