— Get your SC Clearance!

£40K - £45K (potential flex)
  • Big focus on R&D. 
  • Diverse team and projects. 
  • Annual bonus, awesome benefits, very busy due to success! 

I’m looking for an Operations Engineer to join a tech company who provide a range of public sector clients with research, tech and products surrounding cyber and comms security. They’re based in Gloucestershire, initially full remote but will be more office-based when restrictions lift. Due to the nature of the project work you’ll need to be eligible for SC Clearance. 

What skills you’ll need

  • Proven background in a technical operations environment.
  • Extensive knowledge of Linux OS and infrastructure, either hosted or cloud-based. Windows is a bonus. 
  • Experience with infrastructure security and monitoring, any CyberSec knowledge useful. 
  • Scripting skills (Python, Bash etc.). 
  • Understanding of networking principles, DNS, troubleshooting in production. 
  • Any knowledge of the following would be handy: ELK stack, VMware, SIEM, Atlassian, Nagios etc. 
  • Any deployment automation tools like Ansible would be beneficial, but not essential. 
  • ITIL certification desirable. 

What you’ll be doing

Joining a small managed services team with growth planned due to increased project work, you’ll involve yourself in monitoring production infrastructure for faults, creating/managing security alerts, incident management and managing release/deployments. They use Nagios for monitoring and there are bits of high-level service desk work involved. You’ll also help with provisioning new end-user devices, automation strategies and initiatives for improvements across the team. The team itself is 5 people, two in service desk, two in operations and a manager that you’ll report into. Their managed services team is quite new having only gone live in November; their coverage is 8pm – 6pm. 

What you’ll get in return for your talents

This business do a lot with school/graduate outreach, having been involved in various STEM programmes, graduate schemes and educational initiatives to upskill the millennial generation in the importance of cyber security. On top of a generous salary, you’ll get 25 days hol + bank hols, private health cover, a profit-sharing bonus which varies year-on-year, a healthy group personal pension scheme matched up to 5%, and much more. They also advocate for mental well-being and provide an optional 9 day fortnight which any employee can take advantage of!
