DevOps Engineer, Remote (Python/Ruby/Cloud) -  Remote/UK

£60k + bonus + stock options

My client, a digital start-up AI Software Builder is looking for a Mid-weight DevOps Engineer, a technical leader to help us achieve and maintain maximum potential in areas of scale, automation, security, and fault tolerance. This includes everything from multi-cloud application deployment to performance optimisation, orchestration and continuity.

The start-up specialises in building, maintaining and running bespoke software for their customers, making it faster, more accessible and less expensive for everyone to bring their ideas to life.

Last year they secured $29.5m of funding to scale our growth in Europe. They already have three offices in LA, Delhi, and London and recently hit 250 employees globally. A key focus for them this year is to significantly grow their London operation.

WhyYouShould Join

This is a challenging and diverse role that requires you to build the platform and deployment tooling, nearly from the ground up. Only join this role if you are craving rapid growth, able to create a path in unchartered territory, and comfortable with trying, failing and course-correcting fast.

Tech Stack

The in-house platform teams work with a variety of technologies that you'll get to play with. Experience in some would be an advantage but is not strictly necessary. Most important is using the right tool for the job so we’re always evaluating what tech makes the most sense and we’d love for you to have some input in this.
