Job Description

We are looking for someone who wants to build a career in DevOps to join one of London's most innovative agencies as a Junior DevOps Engineer.

With a forward thinking approach that embraces creativity, collaboration and entrepreneurial attitude, this is a company that has consistently delivered ground breaking digital and technical solutions for big name clients. This is a great opportunity to join a successful international company, and to develop your career in DevOps under the guidance of a hugely talented tech team.

The main focus of this role will be to help manage the build, deployment and configuration of the infrastructure that underpins a core suite of software products. This will mean working with a broad range of technologies, and interacting closely with development and QA teams. This is a junior level role, so you will get support and training to help build up your technical skills, but you will need to have a keen interest in technology, excellent problem solving skills, and exposure to server support / systems administration.

To be considered for this role you will need experience in a role involving Linux administration, along with a clear interest in progressing down the DevOps path, and a willingness to learn. In addition, we are looking for people with exposure to as much as possible of the following;

  • Linux (Ubuntu, Red Hat) administration.
  • Shell scripting.
  • Network administration (LAN / WAN).
  • Knowledge of common protocols (HTTP, DNS, TCP, UDP, NTP, SSH, SMTP etc).
  • Knowledge of hosting platforms such as AWS or Azure.
  • Experience deploying systems using Ansible or a similar technology.

In addition, experience of Python, Vagrant, Jira, Git and Django would be beneficial. More importantly, you will need a positive and proactive attitude, strong all-round problem solving skills, and a willingness to learn.

This is a great opportunity to build a career in DevOps while working with a talented team using the most up to date technologies. If this sounds of interest, please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
