  • Working with stakeholders from all business areas (Product, Risk, Technology and Design) as well as the venture management team, to help drive the direction of development for the venture, putting the long term interests of our customers at the heart of key decisions

  • Ensuring all code meets our coding standards, including taking part in PR’s

  • Lead incidents from identification to resolution

  • Working collaboratively with the team to resolve technical issues

  • Manage day-to-day activities within risk appetite

  • Display risk practices and behaviours consistent with a risk culture where risk is simply part of the way we work and think


  • Kubernetes (production usage)

  • Terraform

  • Golang = nice to have (or one strong programming lang e.g. Python)

  • AWS

  • Linux admin skills

  • Kafka = nice to have

  • Microservice awareness

  • CI/CD focus and experience

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Outstanding problem-solving skills

  • Team player who is used to working well in a collaborative team


At at a minimum we expect that you have experience of working in cloud based, continuous deployment type. Key to success is having the right behaviours by default but also good experience of using schedulers like Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon and containers like Docker
