This is a small new team, building deployment architectures that can exploit the cloud, but run on physical hardware if needed. Our security patterns comply with the most stringent requirements, but don’t slow developers down, and we build best in class monitoring and operational tools that our developers, partners and our customers.

  • Building tools and documentation for the process of deploying and operating our platform in all environments.
  • Supporting other engineering teams in writing secure and deployable software; providing best practice guidance and reviewing code and architecture.
  • You will help and advise our engineering design to make best use of orchestrating frameworks such as Kubernetes, and you will advise on security implications within a microservices architecture.

We'd love to hear from you if you identify with the following:

  • You are a Lead software engineer with a demonstrable history of deploying complex Iaas, PaaS or SaaS software to customers with complex security requirements.
  • You have worked on a range of infrastructure or platform projects and are experienced with orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes.

  • You enjoy systems architecture work, collaborating with a range of stakeholders inside and outside of the business.
  • You enjoy and are adept at mentoring and helping other engineers to understand complex deployments.

Nb: While we think the above experience could be important, we can’t predict the future and so we’re keen to hear from applicants that believe they have valuable experience. If you identify with the team & mission, but not all of the suggestions, then please still apply!!
