The infrastructure is primarily housed on AWS (Amazon Web Services), with some services in the process of being migrated from other suppliers. They are heavy users of EC2, Beanstalk, ELB and RDS. They use Docker on ECS where it makes sense. Their APIs and web applications are predominantly written in PHP, using the Symfony framework, running on Linux. Infrastructure is managed with Cloud Formation, Terraform and Ansible.

Their product supports millions of payment transactions every month and they manage real time data for hundreds of thousands of locations.

They are firm believers in DevOps, where a team that runs a software application should also run and own its infrastructure. As such you’ll work closely with the whole engineering team, including the Engineering Lead, but this role is part of their Platform team and reports to their Platform Lead.

The Platform team goals are to:

  • Provide standardisation and consistency of infrastructure across the product
  • Improve the product’s simplicity, scalability and performance and reduce risks around security and availability, through the use of cloud services
  • Champion DevOps, security and site reliability across the business
Your role will be to:
  • Research, recommend and carry out infrastructure and DevOps improvement projects with support from the Platform Lead and Engineering Lead
  • Support other engineers on projects related to infrastructure, providing guidance, documentation and hands on support
  • Carry out business as usual infrastructure tasks where they don’t have automation yet
  • Help investigate, resolve and prevent incidents relating to production infrastructure
  • Follow and improve policies and processes to comply with ISO 27001 accreditation
  • Stay up to date with relevant best practices
  • Partake in out of hours emergency support

As part of the role you’ll be using a high spec MacBook or Dell XPS laptop, depending on your preference of macOS or Linux.

Skills required:

  • Use of cloud services, beyond managing VPS instances and ideally on AWS, including design, implementation and support
  • Management of infrastructure as code (e.g. Cloud Formation, Terraform, Ansible, Chef)
  • Support of critical production systems running on cloud infrastructure, including web applications and databases
  • Track record of delivering continuous improvements to infrastructure and DevOps processes, supporting reliability, scalability, security and simplicity
  • Use and understanding of git version control
  • Understanding of distributed networks, security, site reliability and performance
  • Use of build tools and processes as part of continuous integration
  • Basic Linux system administration experience
  • Coding experience, especially PHP (Desirable)
  • SQL and NoSQL experience (Desirable)
  • Continuous delivery and deployment (Desirable)
  • Monitoring, alerting and observability (Desirable)

This is a remote role and you can be based anywhere within the UK. If interested, please contact Oli Stockford at Evolution Recruitment ASAP!
