Are you an experienced DevOps engineer that can help us to grow our current DevOps offering?

We are looking for someone who can not only take on our existing DevOps processes which are heavily based around Azure DevOps. But also, someone who can own the DevOps space to evolve it and establish it as a focused offering within the business, giving it the focus required to deliver a seamless process.

It’s essential that candidates have commercial experience and a deep working knowledge of the following:

  • Understanding of the web development process and code lifecycle;
  • Demonstrable experience of deployment procedures for CMS platforms, hosting infrastructure design and provisioning, backup strategy and disaster recovery policy;
  • Experience of the Azure DevOps landscape, including:
    • Understanding code repositories
    • Branching and merging strategies
    • Configuration management (e.g variable transforms / substitutions)
    • Build and release pipeline configuration
    • Pre deployment approvals, deployment gates
    • Release notes
    • Kudu
    • Application Insights;
  • SonarQube/Cloud integration;
  • Cake build scripts;
  • PowerShell;
  • IaaS and PaaS infrastructure topologies, CDN;
  • Docker;
  • Kubernetes
  • Selenium automation

A good understanding of the OWASP principles and penetration testing tools will be also welcomed.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to come in and drive this forward, adopting what we have today and elevating it to the next level.

We’ve recently grown the business through acquisition and now have a wider landscape of customers, across differing CMS platforms. One of the core focus points for this role, is to streamline our landscape to show consistency across projects. You will also be the go-to person for all things DevOps and Release related.

You’ll be reporting into our CTO and working alongside our current development team of around 60, including Solution Architects, backend and frontend.
