DevOps Engineer

Job Description

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to join a fast­growing startup team in the centre of Newcastle working on a large­scale SaaS project.

We are looking for either an experienced DevOps engineer with AWS experience or a developer wanting to grow their career in DevOps or an IT engineer with a specialism in DevOps and experience working with AWS.

They are currently running a custom-built stack in Digital Ocean, provisioned by Ansible. Although repeatable, they're looking to move to AWS in order to simplify cluster deployments across regions (the alternative is kubernetes/Docker deployments on Digital Ocean/similar using far fewer servers).

If moving to AWS (currently the preferred solution) they would be looking at utilising the following services:
* CloudFormation
* Probably EC2 Container Services (docker containers)
* EC2 (Servers + Mongo)
* ElastiCache (Redis)
* Eventually Elasticsearch as well

They would be looking at multi-zone deployments for multiple clients, along with tools to improve release workflows, so additional programming skills would be advantageous but not necessarily required.

If you are interested in the advertised position for DevOps Engineer please ‘Register your interest’ through the requested method and we will be in touch shortly with regards to your suitability for the role.
