Senior Operations Engineer



Employment Type:



Remote, UK

As an Operations Engineer in the DevOps function you will work on projects developing IaC / full automation and immutable infrastructure. You will define and build common patterns for reuse, DRY code, policies, and methods to ensure compliance (such as CIS v1.4). 

You will develop CI/CD pipelines and infrastructure using Cloud Development Kits (CDK's), build automation and functions deployed in Lambda and Step Functions. You will help design and architect fault-tolerant infrastructure that scales automatically - taking in to account functional and non-functional requirements such as security, data encryption, backup, cost, and compliance policies. 

Metrics are critical for ensure services scale and perform, you will define, implement and track SLI's, SLO's that drive the customer SLA's. 

To support you transferring back in a technical role the on-boarding will take place over 6 months structured as follows: 

1 month general orientation and set up.
 1 month focused on core principles including for example; 

Linux systems management Linux security / SELinux Bash & shell scripting
 Git, gitflow, pull requests 

1 month focused on Containers and virtual machines 1 month focused on AWS fundamentals 

2 months focused on IaC including CDK's (AWS & Terraform), GitHub Actions, DevOps methodologies including culture, practices and tools. 

Fundamental to this process is the ability to self manage - define and agree the plan for each month, set and agree targets, and critically, document the process, experience and learning so that this can be re-used to help on-board new team members and form the basis for their training plans. 

During this period the following you will have three primary OKR's; 

Achieve AWS Cloud Practitioner certification
 Achieve Terraform Associate certification
 Documented training plan for new starters (based on your experiences) 

After 12 months we would expect you have to achieved; AWS SysOps Administrator Associate certification 

Due to the need to re-skill, you will start at Operations Engineer (Level 4) level, with a salary review and promotion to Senior Operations Engineer after 6 months assuming probation period is passed successfully. After this salary reviews would take place annually inline with the rest of the business. 

Key Responsibilities

Our expectations are that you would need to complete 2 years of hands on experience before being considered for promotion to Principle level and have passed AWS DevOps Engineer Professional Certification.
