The Job

AWS Platform Engineer - AWS, automation, scripting, orchestration, Puppet, Jenkins, Linux, DevOps, CI & CD - Crawley - automating infrastructure using tools to maintain and improve the AWS environment and shorten release cycles.

With some good core processes already in place around continuous integration & deployment as well as server and platform automation and orchestration, this role is looking to build on the success of automating infrastructure across the business. Eventually moving away from manual provisioning of services completely, this role is working closely with development teams to streamline projects in a 'DevOps, done right' way. Nobody's attained perfection yet so there's still a journey to go on and plenty of bumps to smooth out but with the support of an existing team and an opportunity to turn your existing skills to a new environment it's an interesting role at an exciting time.

Ideal applicants will be working in a DevOps way, ideally going beyond just a sysadmin role but that might be in pilot AWS or Azure projects or putting together Proof of Concepts. You'll need a good coverage of the following -

  • AWS (or Azure / Google cloud platfrom)
  • Linux (RedHat and CentOS preferable)
  • Good scripting skills
  • Puppet (or Chef or Ansible tools)
  • Git version control
  • Jenkins
  • Good understanding of server provisioning and orchestration
  • A solid understanding of the software development lifecycle
  • Database back ends (desirable)
  • Java (desirable)

In return a salary of up £55k is on offer with a good work life balance (4 days in the office and flexible working hours) and a good training budget with mentoring and support in place to continue to learn and keep your skills up to date. AWS certification is something that will be supported should that be something you're interested in.

For more information please feel free to get in touch via LinkedIn -/andyslateruk or by email - andy (dot) slater (at) networkerstechnology dot com or give me a call - the number listed in the advert is my direct dial. I work with a number of national and international companies, solution providers, MSP's and consultancies across the UK with a focus on Cloud technologies so if this role was a little below your ideal salary, a bit too far to travel or not making the most of your experience then please get in touch to discuss other opportunities.
