Join an ambitious fintech in tackling some of the biggest names in the industry.
About the role
You would be the first Platform Engineer in a team of around ~10 engineers, coming into design and build their cloud infrastructure. You would be working closely with the software engineers and the product delivery team, making sure delivery and deployment is fast and efficient, while making sure the platform is reliable, scalable and adheres to security standards.
As the first person in this role, you’ll be expected to help make decisions around new technologies, how the platform can best scale, and help introduce relevant new technologies. This is an opportunity for you to learn, work with and implement latest technologies, as well as fill any potential gaps in your skillset at the moment.
You will need proven experience with an end-to-end platform build, all the way from taking a brief, designing and building the architecture. The role will be using Microsoft Azure, as well as Terraform and Docker. You’ll need to have previous experience with config tools i.e. Chef or Puppet, and previous use of Monitoring tooling i.e. Prometheus or New Relic.
On top of that, you’ll need to have the gravitas and knowledge to help implement a DevOps culture across the team. This isn’t a role where you just hack away in the corner, you’ll be helping implement and make big decisions for the future of the Platform.
