Deerfoot IT Resources is looking for a skilled and collaborative Platform Engineer - South to join our client's welcoming and inclusive team. This Full time platform engineering role will be primarily remote, but some travel to either Woking, London or Bristol will be required, as will some broader southern mobility to Southend, Worthing and Croydon on occasion. This position offers a favourable salary of £50,000-£100,000 and many fantastic benefits.

As a flexible Platform/DevOps Engineer, you will work as part of an agile team to help clients build and continuously improve digital services using the best open-source software. Please note that the company offers a remote-first working policy, and employees can work for up to 70% of their time remotely in any given month. However, there will be times when you will be asked to attend meetings or collaboration events with clients, and you can typically expect to travel to a site for work two or three times per month.

In your first few weeks in this Platform Engineer role, you can expect to:

  • Undertake cross-functional engineering projects, work in small teams with other engineers in different knowledge spheres, and build supportable, sustainable and reliable services
  • Help the company achieve their vision and have the chance to make a real difference at the heart of the digital transformation within the UK Public Sector
  • Have opportunities to develop and progress, working on large-scale, technically challenging projects

To succeed in this platform/DevOps engineering job, you will need an appetite for learning new technologies and experience debugging complex, multi-server services in a high-availability production environment. You will also require good communication skills, the ability to convey complex technical concepts clearly and concisely, and a willingness to undergo SC-level Security Clearance.

Additional requirements include:

  • Extremely sound knowledge of GNU/Linux
  • Experience in building infrastructure in AWS using Terraform
  • AWS certification (SysOps/Developer/Architect) - preferred but not essential
  • Knowledge and experience in setting up and using configuration management tooling - Puppet preferred
  • Reasonable fluency in Ruby, Go or Python and an understanding of CI environments and how they facilitate the automation process with other orchestration tools

In return for your passion, collaborative approach and commitment, you will receive a generous salary of £50k-£100k and an excellent benefits package, joining a friendly and inclusive culture.

Please reach out to the Deerfoot IT Resources team today to apply and register your interest in this Full time Platform Engineer position in the southern regions. We look forward to hearing from you!
