DevOps Engineer | AWS, Kubernetes, Helm | Blockchain / Web 3

 

You're a DevOps enthusiast and absolutely at the top of your game, but... You have become bored within your current remit - the work simply isn't stimulating, and you want the freedom to bring your own flare and have the autonomy to choose the tech that you think works best, you want to find that role that really pushes your boundaries and will allow you to reach your full potential.

 

Look no further...

 

My global client is looking for a DevOps whizz to join their thriving team. Within this team, you'll be given the opportunity to own this role and join them at a time when huge things are happening.

 

This company blows my mind, the first company in the world to deliver international aid using blockchain technology in 2015. Founded in 2014 and incorporated in Ireland, Singapore, the UK, and the USA their platform brings transparency and traceability to the distribution of resources by Governments, NGOs, Corporates and Charities.

 

At the platform's core is digital identity; enabling blockchain applications to bring access and inclusion to the underserved. What is a better feeling than knowing your work really changes lives? In a world where major disasters happen, think floods, and earthquakes, this company have built a product like no other, that helps NGOs/agencies like FEMA and the Red Cross disburse aid to victims.

 

They have built a mobile wallet that the survivors use on their phones which identifies them using their photo, and then survivors can apply for the benefit/funding they need.

 

They are partnered with Amazon and can deliver a 'house in a box', sanitary kits, and a wallet tab that can be used in supermarkets that get delivered to the survivors. This process used to take 5 weeks. Now thanks to their amazing technology, help in such a time of need is taken care of fast. Also, on the other side, the software for the volunteers, and the underlying technology that is used for digital identity use the blockchain, so you'll get a chance to gain exposure to Web3 / blockchain kit.

 

Requirements:

  • 5 years of previous experience as a DevOps / Platform Engineer
  • Strong background in deployment automation/configuration management of large-scale distributed systems
  • Experience with Cloud Compute Providers (AWS preferred but GCP and Azure will also be considered).
  • Linux Sys Admin expertise
  • Experience with Docker orchestration
  • Significant experience designing tools for infrastructure management.
  • Experience doing root cause analysis on distributed systems
  • Very beneficial will be strong Kubernetes skills to be able to deploy clusters.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Ensuring data recoverability by developing and implementing a schedule of system backups and database archive operations
  • Ensuring system data integrity by evaluating, implementing, and managing appropriate software and hardware solutions of varying complexities
  • Conducting hardware and software audits of workstations and remote servers to ensure compliance with established standards, policies, and configuration guidelines.
  • Subscription management, onboarding, coordination, billing management and education of fellow team members will be necessary.
  • Work directly with architects and developers to debug problems and solutions.
  • Enforcing best practices with external Vendors- relationship and negotiating skills will be used often.
  • Developing, implementing, and enforcing standard operating procedures and schedules will help scale the entire engineering team.
  • Provide technical support to team members, setting up accounts using onboarding automation for new team members.
  • Lots of experience effectively and securely setting up and managing Cloud Computing environments with several providers
  • You're comfortable designing and deploying a K8s cluster with an HA control plane either from scratch or using some of the managed services available.
  • You understand the implications, benefits, and trade-offs of using Nginx or HAProxy as an ingress controller and can clearly identify and communicate the best option for a given scenario considering any relevant constraints and use cases.
  • If you love your work and it can change lives, is there a better feeling than that?

 

I'd love the opportunity to share so much more with you, so if this sounds like it has your name on it then please do get in touch today.
