Computer Office Work

DevOps Engineer

We're looking for a DevOps specialist, with at least 3 years experience in a DevOps type role, to support us as we scale up fast.

About the Role

This is a crucial and timely role in Recite Me. We’re scaling fast - as more and more large organisations adopt Recite Me technology, so grows the need for our infrastructure to keep pace and support increased usage robustly and reliably.

 

Stability, security and scalability - these are the cornerstone of this role, keeping services running and preparing our systems for the next big opportunity.

 

This is a chance to shape an evolving technology stack and keep a global user base online and fully supported across our product portfolio.

 

From building deployment pipelines, to server provisioning, security monitoring and usage optimising - your role underpins our global client base’s experience, and your dev-ops skills will be vital in helping users around the world access our accessibility tools whenever they most need them.

Essential Skills 

  • Solid knowledge of Linux (Debian)

  • Dedicated server experience is essential

  • Knowledge of Docker, containerisation and Kubernetes

  •  Min 3 years’ experience in a DevOps type role

  • Knowledge of multi-tenant architecture

  • Familiar with server security and patch management

  • Familiar with load balancing and scaling 

  • Key eye for architectural design with past experience and reference

  • Familiar with deployment pipelines and automation

  • Understanding of 'no single point of failure' architecture

Desirable Skills:

  • Familiarity with continuous security profiling and monitoring

About You

You’ll be a dev-ops specialist - able to advise us what scalable architecture looks like, and put together migration and monitoring plans for our infrastructure, as well as advising the business on security best practices to help us meet the rigorous standards of our growing list of enterprise clients.


 

You’ll naturally feel a sense of responsibility for your tech stack and encourage others to find ways to optimise and improve the ways code is deployed and our systems are.

 

This is a dual-role - you’ll be working across Recite Me and our sister agency, ARCH - keeping our client sites running and our SaaS accessibility services operating globally.

 

This role is perfect for a self-starter with deep sector expertise and a willingness to get stuck in and make our technology stack the very best it can be, supported by a first-class team in a rapidly growing technology company.
