What You'll Do...

As part of one of our Enterprise squads, you’ll be working with other team members to deliver DevOps capabilities to clients, including (but not limited to!!) Continuous Delivery, Secrets Management, Containerisation and Cloud. This will include using a variety of existing toolsets and technologies, and introducing new technology to solve complex problems. Some of these include the likes of TeamCity, Jenkins, Docker, Ansible, AWS and HashiCorp Vault.

It’s not just about delivery at DevOpsGroup; there is a big focus on learning and development too. It’s key to us growing as a squad and an organisation, ensuring we always bring the best solutions to the problems our clients have. As part of the team, you’ll work with peers and your manager to identify a career pathway that works for you, ensuring you have the time you need to develop as a person.

Here’s how your first month will look…

  • We will ease you into your time at DOG with a fully planned two-week onboarding process to learn our ways of working and tooling.
  • You will meet your team and joined in on stand-ups, as well as a mixture of peers with varying experience through the Engineering community.
  • A team lunch will be provided on your first day for everyone in the Cardiff office to come together.
  • We will introduce you to all the clients looked after within the squad, walking you through their setups and tooling.
  • You will work alongside your line manager to arrange fortnightly 1-2-1’s, and you will have had your first 1-2-1 by the end of the month.
  • We pride ourselves on our openness within DOG. You will be given the opportunity to provide feedback on your onboarding and first month at DOG. You will also receive feedback from your team and line manager during this time, allowing you to grow and develop.

By month three…

  • You’ll be working closely with your team, and would have started to deliver awesome solutions to our clients.
  • You will be offered Agile Foundation BCS training as well as our exclusive UK first DevOps Foundation BCS training.
  • You will have familiarised yourself with the day to day tooling used in the squad (Jira and Confluence), and contributed to improvement in the squad via fortnightly review calls.
  • You will have had opportunities to research and trial new technologies, so that we can look to aid our clients to adopt cutting edge technology.
  • The squad will have had a carefully chosen team building evening.
  • You will have attended a quarterly DOG Conference!

A full year with DevOpsGroup…

  • You’ll now be working closely with clients on a daily basis, and have delivered numerous capabilities enabling them to achieve their goals.
  • Accidentally broken something, but that’s ok, providing there’s learning to take from it.
  • You will now be looking for opportunities to progress.
  • Picking up and working on tickets with little or no assistance will be a breeze to you now.
