What’s my day to day going to be like?

  • Support & expand - Maintain our AWS-hosted infrastructure. You’ll need to monitor and proactively plan and configure aspects of the infrastructure as well as liaising with other parties both internal and externally to improve our performance and improve reliability. As you would expect with a role such as this, when situations arise you may need to react to outages outside of the business day, to either deal with an issue or act as an escalation point
  • Coaching and mentoring the team - coach the wider engineering team on DevOps best practice including providing guidance and training on k8s and Jenkins.
  • Thinking out of the box and anticipate challenges - It is imperative we are not simply reactive, we must expect challenges and question technologies, procedures and thinking already in place, you will be expected to constantly review and challenge at all levels.
  • Versatile - We work with agile/lean methods. We’d much rather iterate and learn than assume we know all the answers.

What we’d like you to have:

  • Technical skills: Linux admin, AWS (or other cloud infrastructure e.g. Google Cloud), Docker Kubernetes and at least one scripting language (ruby, python etc)
  • Eagerness to learn - You have expertise with what you’ve worked on and an eagerness to learn where you haven’t worked before. Today we rely heavily on AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Terraform and MySql as well as a great number of additional applications for functions such as monitoring and networking. We are however always open to new tools & techniques to get the job done more effectively.
  • Team player - You don’t (always) work in isolation and are excited by the thought of using your team whilst involving product, experience design, engineering and more in the process.
  • Engineering excellence - Constantly looking for new ways to improve our infrastructure and leverage the capabilities AWS (and others) provide us with.

It would be great if you have:

  • Technical skills: Terraform, Jenkins and knowledge of relational databases

What you’ll get in return

  • Always be learning. We won’t ever expect you to do the same thing over and over. We want to give you new opportunities to become the best engineer you can be
  • Make a measurable difference. We’re here to change the way the world deals with property by making it accessible for all.
  • A relaxed open-plan working environment
  • Matched pension contributions up to 4%
  • Discretionary share-option scheme
  • 25 days holiday
  • Enhance maternity/paternity pay
  • Subsidised gym membership via PerkBox
  • Various other discounts/benefits via PerkBox
  • Open bar from 5.30pm (4pm on Fridays)
  • Cooked lunch on Friday's from a local restaurant
  • A selection of breakfast cereals and fresh fruits and snacks are available each day

  • Gain bonus points for having experience with Docker, automated build systems and package managers
  • Gain bonus points for having worked with complex data analysis systems
  • Not be afraid of new technology and getting stuck into to hard problems 
  • Be able to communicate complex technical issues well 

There are numerous traditional benefits to working in our team such as highly competitive salary, private healthcare, pension, childcare vouchers, and other schemes. However, you'll also be working on a variety of state of the art technologies in a friendly and highly capable team, and you will be given the opportunity to self manage your work and develop your skills whilst solving important challenges for society.
