DICE was built for fans, and we’re on a mission to get people out more. We’ve grown from a six-person start-up in London to become one of the fastest growing consumer businesses to originate from Europe.

We are obsessed with design and technology and on a mission to be the world’s best platform to discover and buy tickets to amazing live experiences. The best artists all work closely with us to make sure their tickets go to their fans, not scalpers or touts.

We're looking for a SysOps/DevOps Engineer with Kubernetes experience to join and work cross-functionally with our Product Team to deploy and operate our systems. We're currently in the middle of migrating from our old infrastructure (AWS EC2 VMs created by a mix of chef-vagrant-manual_operations) to a new Terraform-Kubernetes infrastructure.

We have a strong focus on security and high availability, and you’ll be hands-on in multiple aspects, from helping to automate and streamline our processes and operations, to troubleshooting and resolving production issues, ensuring security and stability of our infrastructure and helping with support.

This is a great opportunity for a SysOps Engineer who is comfortable with DevOps and is looking for a challenging and rewarding role within a fast-paced environment, while helping to shape our new infrastructure to deliver an amazing service and disrupt a global industry!
