You have a proven track of:

  • Designing a cohesive vision of infrastructure architecture

  • Managing the delivery of infrastructure improvements with focus on cost effectiveness and timely delivery. You have the ability to direct change through design and structure.
  • Understanding the needs of the development teams in terms of infrastructure and process point of view
  • Identifying the areas of the infrastructure where the change would be most impactful
  • Managing the security aspect of infrastructure implementation such as external and internal interfaces, networking issues, and common vector of attacks

You can demonstrate the ability to:

  • Understand the core tenets of architectural decisions taken during the design of software systems and how they impact the shape of the infrastructure

  • Manage the cooperation of infrastructure engineers who are members of cross-functional delivery teams and are spread across multiple time zones
  • Design and deliver a comprehensive logging and monitoring framework
  • Understand code and development practices such as Test Driven Development, Behaviour Driven Development, and code reviews
  • Understand the security implications and design systems that test and ensure the secure delivery of infrastructure
  • Be able to do what you talk about - lead by example

You have knowledge of:

  • Site reliability engineering principles - so that we can model our approach on what works for Google and other big players
  • Expertise in Infrastructure as Code and technologies that support it, such as:
    • Kubernetes
    • Docker
    • Terraform
    • Prometheus
  • Google Cloud Platform (preferred) and / or AWS
  • Programming in Python - you know how to read code, you can understand it and you can make changes
  • Forseti and penetration testing - so that our systems stay secure
  • Knowledge of networking and cloud-based delivery models

It would be nice if you knew:

  • ERD, BPMN, and sequence diagrams- so that we can share architectural and process designs
  • Modern testing techniques and frameworks for mainstream programming languages: Python, node.js, Go
  • Azure, and other cloud providers

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to get into a real tech driven business and take ownership of how the company move forward.

Please only apply if you have the relevant experience!!!!!!!!
