You are…

Focussed on platform operations; either you’ve done it from the start or you’ve transitioned from another path. You enjoy making things better; through process, delivery and execution. Always having one eye on the future, you are always looking to help shape our industry-leading platform. We don’t expect you to know everything but want you to bring your learnings and experience to the team, seeking to improve the skills of not only yourself but everyone around you.

Using your technical expertise and experience you’ll work with teams, both in and outside of the department, providing teams with the required tools and support to produce amazing applications. Being an integral part of architectural conversations and guiding engineers to the correct solutions, you’ll ensure these applications are resilient and reliable. Automation and testing are standard; accurate logging and monitoring the right things are second nature. 

 

A normal day will involve…

  • developing and maintaining our AWS estate  (EC2, ECS, RDS, and many more) 
  • deploying “infrastructure as code” (we use Cloudformation, Chef & Terraform)
  • working with container based systems (we currently run Docker in ECS)
  • deploying and maintaining relational databases; from solving performance issues to managing backup and replication strategies, and disaster recovery (we use MySQL across EC2 and RDS, plus Snowflake)
  • working alongside our engineering teams to design deployment architecture and resolve infrastructure issues
  • implementing monitors for production environments (we use Datadog)
  • researching and employing best practice techniques (security, backups)
  • setting up and maintaining automated deployment tools (we use Jenkins and CircleCI)
  • managing application traffic (our toolset includes DNS, VCL, HTTP, HAProxy)
  • using modern scripting languages (Ruby, Python, Groovy)

 

Bonus points for...

  • experience using a CDN (Fastly/Cloudfront/Cloudflare)
  • experience designing resilient networks/infrastructure
  • experience with disaster recovery and modern infrastructure testing techniques & tooling
  • experience writing web-based applications and a willingness to quickly get up to speed on our stack (Javascript/PHP/Python)
  • Experience of other cluster managers (Kubernetes, Nomad)
