You will offer a passion for cloud & automation, seamless tooling and approaching software delivery in a DevOps approach. The business has built an unrivalled support structure which it’s expected you will embed into.

What you’ll get in return for your experience
Where to start? They offer unlimited holiday (yes, you read that right), an open source handbook on Github which you’ll be able to contribute to regularly, as well as flexible working hours for those who need it. They offer a culture of learning; they dedicate one afternoon a week purely to research & development to allow their Engineers to upskill in any areas they feel need some attention, plus funding any techie courses/conferences that would be useful for you to go to. You can expect to be sent on annual holidays with the team, regular lunches & socials and will even pay for you to go away on your 3rd working anniversary! They’re very active in the tech community too, speak regularly at meetups and run their own events.
