We are looking for someone who is passionate about learning new technologies and enjoys working in an agile environment. You’ll have to make tough decisions, implement best practice and provide compromises when situations are not ideal. Oh and you’ll need to explain that to people. Not just the technical ones. Because we work in product teams where not everyone is a techie. It’s fun, you get closer to the business and know more about why we do what we do, not just how. Do you need to use Google to find answers to do your job? So do we! We aren’t afraid to admit that we don’t have all the answers and neither should you.
The core technologies in the team are Kubernetes, AWS, Jenkins and Terraform. If you don’t have all of these skills then that’s ok, as long as you have some of them and a real passion to learn the rest. Someone with experience developing CICD pipelines will be looked at favourably, especially if you are deploying into a microservices architecture run on Kubernetes.
We expect you to be comfortable in at least one programming language in order to slot into the team and pick up work on day one… The team is made up of highly skilled engineers from different tech backgrounds, like infrastructure, QA and web development. Now we focus on automation and delivering ‘assembly lines’ that other engineers use to get their products out to members as quickly and efficiently as possible. Don’t know what an ‘assembly line’ is? Hit us up and we will be glad to explain what that means to us. The Tooling team works with all product teams in the business and are essential for those teams to deliver their high-quality code to members. Our goal is to make it easier for our software engineers to get that code out into member hands as quickly as possible and to make sure that code lives on a stable and robust platform. Key Skills/Experience Kubernetes AWS Developing CICD pipelines
Our Tech Stack – We currently run an OpenShift cluster in AWS and we are just starting to migrate over to EKS. We setup and manage an ephemeral Jenkins server running AWS spot instances as agents.

Candidates with experience of the following will be strongly preferred: Amazon Web Services, Kubernetes, CICD, Terraform, Ansible, Jenkins.
