DevOps Engineer

Searching for a new job can be tiresome to say the least. The same advert written by the same group of recruiters over and over again. That's why I am hoping for this one to short, engaging and informative.

I am recruiting on behalf of a huge digital consultancy firm, with roles across the United Kingdom, who are looking to hire DevOps Engineers of all levels to join their team of experts. This is part of a large recruitment drive which is aiming to improve the way their services are delivered to clients. You will be working on a nationwide project to revolutionise the public sector webservices.

There are positions across a number of levels from mid-level right through to senior. As you progress through the levels you will gain more responsibilities and more opportunities to mentor other developers who are coming through the ranks.

Logistically, you can expect to be on client site 4 days out of 5 with 1 day of home working, typically on a Friday. For that reason, the ideal candidate can travel UK wide. However, it is not always an option for people and the client will endeavour to place individuals on site near to your home. With projects across the country there is likely to be something for everyone.

In terms of skills, as always, there are a few things my client are looking for. These include:
  • A background in cloud technologies (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure etc…).
  • An understanding of Linux.
  • Demonstrable experience with containerisation technologies (Docker, Kubernetes etc…).
  • Knowledge of other DevOps tools (Jenkins, Ansible etc…).

Not all candidates will have these skills. But worry not! There will be between £10000 and £15000 worth of training given to you free of charge to explore new technologies. The training does not stop there though. If you would like to go on management courses, for example, there will be an opportunity to do so, rather than focussing purely on tech.

I know that salary can be very important when deciding on a new job. For that reason, I am not going to beat around the bush with this. On offer are salaries between £40000 to £75000 (DOE). With travel paid for, accommodation paid for and food and drink paid for. This is on top of these benefits and will not come from your pocket.
