Senior DevOps Engineer | Kubernetes Subject Matter Expert | UK Tech Unicorn

 

This is a unique opportunity here to work for one of the UK's leading success stories in the web build / eCommerce space. Our client, a scale-up tech unicorn, has been going through meteoric growth. They're a self-funded organisation and have raised over £400 million in investment and are soon to be raising even more. They employ 900 people globally, with 220 in engineering spread across the UK and India. There are plans to grow the engineering team by another 50% in the next two years. You will be working in a team of circa 10 DevOps Engineers and sitting next to 15 SREs.

 

This is a remote-first opportunity but our client has a nice office in a WeWork in central London should you prefer to work in the office.

There are also quarterly meetings you will be asked to attend.

 

Our client has a very complex and unique multi-cloud architecture with >2,000 Kubernetes clusters sitting on it. It is essential that you are a Kubernetes Subject Matter Expert. It doesn't matter which public cloud background you come from as our client is running mainly Azure and AWS so Kubernetes on-prem, AKS or EKS are both fine for this role.

 

Essential skills required:

  • Kubernetes master - able to architect, migrate, build and manage clusters from scratch.
  • Public Cloud; any of AWS, Azure, GCP, or Digital Ocean as our client has a multi-cloud environment for their different customers.
  • Scripting; ideally in Python and Bash.

 

Other cool technologies you'll be working with:

  • Terraform & Ansible used for IaC.
  • GitLab for CI/CD.
  • Monitoring tools such as Prometheus, Loki and Grafana.
  • Networking; load balancing, service meshes etc.

 

This is such a great opportunity! There's so much project work to be done here around Kubernetes cluster upgrades and re-architecture, improving the pipelines, implementing new tooling, enhancing the IaC etc etc. All this and you will be working with a super-cool team and company.

 

Benefits:

  • Remote first organisation
  • 10% Bonus
  • Share Options, very generous - call for more details
  • Medical, dental, optical
  • Budget for home office equipment
  • 24 days holiday Christmas period off, Family holidays and company bank holidays
  • Annual international off-site trip (recent trips have been in South East Asia!) for a companywide conference

 

Apply ASAP for success!
