Senior DevOps Engineer - £80,000 to £90,000 - Manchester

The company

We are one of the largest, multinational investment banks in the entire world who specialise in financial services, personal/ corporate banking and wealth management. Our chief security office (CSO) ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the firm's assets, implementing world class security solutions. We've already implemented a strong protection for our business, but we need to adapt to the rapid change in the cyber arena. We need expert DevOps Engineers to ensure we detect security alerts quickly, then react, respond and recover.

The role

As the DevOps Lead, you will be required to design, build and operate robust hosting and pipeline solutions to support software delivery in the CSO, ensuring we standardise the patterns we use for any tooling whilst also ensuring other tools (cyber specific) are managed accordingly. You'll develop and improve DevOps solutions function wide, perform hands on DevOps work, as well as leading a small team of engineers to enforce technical methodology. You will deliver modern and forward-thinking DevOps solutions, mature and simplify our tech portfolio and make measurable improvements to speed of delivery.

What we're looking for:
  • Outstanding RedHat skills
  • Containerisation and Orchestration
  • Excellent Jenkins and Chef exposure (build delivery automation pipelines and deploy / make configuration changes)
  • AWS exposure essential and detailed development level (Lambda Code, EC2, VCP)
  • Excellent coding ability in Java, Python or Shell
  • Excellent stakeholder management and communication skills
  • Leadership/ mentoring experience


What we can offer you

Everything we do is shaped by the five values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Stewardship. Our values inform the foundations of our relationships with customers and clients, but they also shape how we measure and reward the performance of our colleagues. Simply put, success is not just about what you achieve, but about how you achieve it.

These includes a competitive salary (+ 10% bonus) and pension (10%), health care and all the tools, technology and support to help you become the very best you can be. We are proud of our dynamic working options for colleagues. If you have a need for flexibility, then please discuss this with us.
