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 have just landed a huge new contract with a large hospital in the UK. 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.


This is an SRE contract role where you will be working on an exciting greenfield project, 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.


Absolute essentials / non-negotiables for the role:

  • GCP knowledge, and experience in leading large-scale projects
  • Working with Kubernetes and CI/CD tooling
  • An understanding of true SRE / Platform engineering as opposed to 'DevOps'. You will be asked to define "what is an SRE" in the interview process.
  • SRE fundamentals: SLIs, SLAs and SLOs


Tech Stack:

  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Scripting - Python, PowerShell, Bash.
  • CI/CD & automation tools such as - Jenkins, Git, GitLab, Ansible, Terraform
  • Development languages such as Go, C#, Java, JavaScript or similar.
  • Logging services such as StackDriver, ELK, DataDog, and Splunk.
  • Monitoring tools like StackDriver, NewRelic, Graphite, Nagios, and Zabbix.


  • Success in the monitoring of cloud infrastructure and SaaS or PaaS applications
  • Strong experience in administration of IT systems including compute, network, storage, and access control.
  • A recognised record of success in the administration of cloud infrastructure and deployed applications for enterprise SaaS or PaaS companies in GCP
  • SaaS experience or SRE cloud operations/developer
  • Soft skills in terms of building conversation with different teams, developers, corp IT, Infosec
  • Be the Principal/Lead SME in the Cloud Ops space.
  • Define, and implement methodology and toolset for fully automated infrastructure management as a code.
  • Serve as the company's subject matter expert to support other Change Healthcare teams for purposes of cloud technologies, operations, and DevOps methodology.


If you are a Site Reliability Engineer with a solid grasp of SRE fundamentals teamed with a background of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) knowledge and fancy an exciting and fast-paced project then I'd love to share more of the details. Apply today to avoid disappointment, this contract role will be snapped up fast I'm sure!
