Job Description

About the Job

Day-to-day, you will be working in a highly collaborative manner with everyone in the organisation, particularly our other technology team members and product owners. We manage work through a prioritised backlog of tasks – we try and minimise chaos so there’s always a good purpose for you doing what you’re doing.

There’s a sane, paid out-of-hours on-call rota (for emergencies only). This job does not involve IT desktop support; we already have people who are great at that.


About You

  • You believe systems and infrastructure development involves a lot more than just computers, configs and code. You see it as your remit to understand our domain so we can deliver as much value to the business as possible.
  • You believe in continuous improvement, using metrics to provide feedback and guide future development. To you, measurable quality really matters.
  • You have a practical understanding of what is required to run a microservice style architecture, in a fault tolerant and performant manner to meet our service level objectives.

Key Responsibilities

  • Capacity planning and cost management.
  • Problem solving platform issues.
  • Maintaining and monitoring our platform SLAs.
  • Being a member of the out of hours support rota.
  • Provide operations input into architectural decisions.
  • Work closely with developers to achieve company goals.
  • Working with third party suppliers and partners.
  • Automation of infrastructure and systems using tools like Chef, Terraform and CloudFormation.
  • For new development we take a ‘cloud first’ approach but we also manage existing environments within our data centres.

Technology You’ll Get To Use

  • Linux, Windows Server
  • Python, Bash, Ruby (Chef)
  • Chef, TeamCity, Git
  • AWS and GCP
  • Elastic Beanstalk, ECS, Kubernetes, App Engine
  • DataDog, Sumo Logic, Zabbix
  • Networking: VPCs, VLANs, Cisco, Juniper, VPNs
  • NGINX, HAProxy, VMWare
  • We have data stored in Postgres, SQL Server and Google Cloud Storage.
  • CDN (Fastly), Varnish, Redis, Kafka

We don’t require you to have expertise in all these areas but any exposure would be a bonus.


  • 25 days holiday (increasing by one day each January, up to a maximum of 30 days)
  • Bonus birthday day off
  • Pension Scheme – matched contributions up to 3%
  • Healthshield cash back scheme
  • Travel season ticket loan
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Flexible working hours
  • Up to 3 days paid each year to do volunteer/charity work
  • Regular knowledge sharing talks and socials
