Job Description

Senior DevOps Engineer

My client is an innovative thinking software development agency. They are an award winning company and have attracted large sums of investments from different groups. Due to this rapid growth, my client is looking to hire a DevOps Engineer.

A successful candidate will look after their cloud based hosting platform which runs on Azure. You should be self-sufficient in terms of skills and an ability to face and resolve challenges without monitoring

You will have significant previous experience managing and monitoring a cloud-based service, ideally one that had 24/7 up-time of 99.9%. You will also have a good understanding of on-line hosting, web server farms, proxies and firewalls etc. particularly as they apply to cloud environments.

You will also understand the concepts or challenges with running a geo-replicated cloud system and the high-level solutions that solve the problems as well as the additional challenges presented when a system is distributed globally instead of being hosted in a single place.

You will have experience with .Net, Azure and basic HTTP technology including REST APIs, SSL configuration as well as a basic understanding of web application performance measurement and improvement i.e. what elements in a software system cause bottlenecks and how might they be resolved.
