Lead DevOps Engineer – London – c£105k – AWS

About the Role

I am currently working alongside one of the UK’s leading Automotive Traders, helping them find a Lead DevOps Engineer to join their team. This is an outstanding opportunity for you to become part of an award-winning business, working with them to build out and lead a brand new DevOps department.

My client believes that time and resources should be invested in technology and you. They emphasise this by encouraging and financing your own individual learning and development, as well as heavily investing in the newest tech and the best talent to manage it.

Why not work for a company that focuses on individual development, as much as they value the development of their company?

  • Own and implement appropriate monitoring & alerting. Assist the development teams in using these metrics to ensure the reliability of the platform across all services across all deployments.
  • Define service level objectives.
  • Own and implement new continuous deployment & release improvements to support their ambitious future plans.

Essential Skills & Qualification

  • Extensive hands-on experience with AWS
  • Experienced leading teams
  • Relevant qualifications and/or experience

  • Experience with Heroku or similar PaaS.
  • Experience with container deployment platforms like Kubernetes.
  • Experience with Docker & Containerisation.
