  • You will get up to two days “innovation time” a month to investigate new technologies or product ideas.

There’s a sane, paid out-of-hours on-call rota (for emergencies only). This job does not involve IT desktop support; we already have people who are great at that.

  • Work closely with developers to achieve company goals.
  • Working with third party suppliers and partners.
  • Automation of infrastructure and systems using tools like Chef, Terraform and CloudFormation.

  • Python, Bash, Ruby (Chef)
  • Chef, TeamCity, Git
  • AWS and GCP
  • Elastic Beanstalk, ECS, Kubernetes, App Engine

  • We have data stored in Postgres, SQL Server and Google Cloud Storage.
  • CDN (Fastly), Varnish, Redis, Kafka

We don’t require you to have expertise in all these areas but any exposure would be a bonus.

  • Bonus birthday day off
  • Pension Scheme - matched contributions up to 3%
  • Healthshield cash back scheme
