What You'll Do...

You’ll be working with a variety of technologies and tools such as Azure, Ansible, Kubernetes/AKS, Jenkins, Azure DevOps, Terraform etc… (just to name a few!)

Even though we have offices in Cardiff & London, we fully support remote and flexible working here at DevOpsGroup, so if you are not currently residing in these locations, we would still love to hear from you to discuss #LifeatDOG

Here’s how your first month will look…

  • Our People Team have provided you with everything you need to know during your onboarding
  • You are now using the laptop, kit and setup of your choice
  • You’ll dive straight into your team stand-ups
  • We’ll introduce you to our OKR’s and possibly assigned some of your own
  • You’ve learnt a tech stack you are not familiar with
  • You’ve attended your first DevOpsGroup Conference
  • As a new starter, the access to our knowledge base and support systems is coming in real handy
  • Any queries or concerns? These have been addressed and you’re more than ready for your DevOpsGroup future

By month three…

  • You’ve continued pairing with others and work independently on areas you are more familiar with
  • As you have full access to our DevOpsGroup Academy, you’ve probably completed some further certifications, such as the Agile and DevOps foundation
  • You’ve been involved in implementing client infrastructure
  • You are starting to deliver some exciting work for our clients
  • Perhaps you’ve got a thing or two wrong along the way, failure is an option at DevOpsGroup and is something we are always learning from
  • You may have planned how you’ll be spending your training budget
  • You are now familiar with every member of the DevOpsGroup family
  • The opportunity to influence architecture has come about once or twice
  • You are familiar with a client’s tech stack
  • Perhaps you are regularly attending client stand-ups

A full year with DevOpsGroup…

  • You’ve added significant value to our client experience
  • You’ve assisted at least one customer with a cloud migration and helped them with their cloud journey
  • Whether it’s stage or screen, the platform is yours and you may be reflecting back on some epic uses of it
  • Through our academy, you are helping to champion the next generation of talent
  • You continue to be in awe of the rate of change within Azure as your knowledge of this platform continues to grow even further
  • You’ve mentored other Engineers within the squad, and shared a lot of knowledge
  • You know what is required of you to achieve the next grade in your career here
