What You'll Do...

As a team, we are crafting the future legacy of DevOpsGroup and we are looking for more super talented individuals to add their mark. As the team continues to grow, we are looking to meet Senior Engineers to discuss how your future could look with us at DevOpsGroup.

You’ll be working with a variety of technologies and tools such as AWS, Ansible, BASH, GIT, CloudFormation or Terraform (just to name a few!)

Here’s how your first month will look…

  • Our People Team have provided you with everything you need to know during your induction
  • 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
  • Steve and James will take you for a co-founder’s lunch
  • You’ll be using some of the many features AWS Sandbox has to offer
  • You’ve learnt a tech stack you are not familiar with
  • You’ve attended your first DevOpsGroup Conference and like all good conferences you are now the proud owner of plenty DevOpsGroup branded SWAG
  • 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 yearly 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 on several successful cloud migrations
  • 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 AWS as your knowledge of this platform continues to grow
  • You know what is required of you to achieve the next grade in your career here
  • Your wardrobe is now filled with DOG merch
