Principal DevOps/SRE Engineer | GCP & Kubernetes | SaaS HealthTech


*100% Remote*


This is one of those *awesome* opportunities! Our client is a global SaaS HealthTech with a footprint in every major continent (15,000 employees). They are looking to establish a new Cloud team in the UK to support their platform that their SaaS application will sit on top of that will service their UK customers. You will be working as part of an enterprise business but have the fun culture and feel of building a 'mini start-up' inside a mature business.


Local headcount currently is 35 in Ireland and 45 in the UK (remote sys admins, tech engineers, field engineers, project managers, programme managers and sales) and expanding the UK office - feels like a start-up with start-up good energy.


Our client is around 50% through their GCP platform build and SRE architecture design and build. The public cloud provider that has been selected is going to be the Google Cloud (GCP) eco-system, having a solid GCP background and experience is key to the success of this role. You will have access to utilise DevOps tools that are already in place in the other geographic regions, but importantly not limited to them. If you want to use a new tool, workflow or methodology this is your blank canvass to implement what you think will be best!


This is a Senior/Principal SRE/DevOps role where you will be initially doing a lift and shift of on-prem architecture into GCP and then after that doing a GCP SRE platform architecture design and build to host the new SaaS Architecture using Kubernetes cluster builds, CI/CD installs and using languages such as Python to 'glue' everything together.
