Lead DevOps Engineer - Sheffield
t Sky Betting and Gaming we don't have team Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose.
So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.
It all means that we've created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.
Who are you?
We're looking for Engineers who are passionate about operating high profile online platforms, with stories of their triumphs and scars from their failures. You'll be enthusiastic about modern methods for infrastructure management and platform delivery, with a pragmatic style and great analytical skills that help you identify and solve problems before our customers do. You will have a keen sense of architecture, security, resilience and performance that allows you to spot solutions that work and those that don't. You'll be continually learning and have an eye on the tech coming over the horizon.
CI, CD, CM, DevOps and Agile are not just buzz words on your CV, they are the way you work.
You'll take responsibility for the quality of our deployment pipeline. You will ensure resilience, capacity, performance, repeatability, security, scalability, alerting and a pro-active approach to monitoring of the platform. You will understand how your platform meet the needs of the end user.
You'll have practical experience working with Jenkins, Travis, Ansible and Chef to create a release automation pipeline from development through to live.
Configuration Management and Continuous Delivery
You will be an exponent of modern practices around Continuous Delivery, Blue/Green deployment and always-on service design, understanding what they mean on a technical level and having the practical experience of implementing them during your career to date. You will have significant experience working with configuration management tools such as Puppet and Chef, will have opinions on their best use and experience of working with them in large and complex environments. You automate by default and avoid solutions that are a barrier to this goal.
You are familiar with Git and other version control systems, understand branching and merging, and can show us how well you work with colleagues to review code and scripts in a way that improves quality over time. You give and take feedback transparently and with integrity.
Infrastructure and Operations
Improving the management of virtual infrastructure is central to the way you work. Repeatability, reliability and efficiency are watch words for you and you go to great lengths to ensure infrastructure is resilient and secure. You are familiar with a variety of infrastructure technologies and tools including Linux, CloudStack, OpenStack, AWS, Fortigate firewalls, F5 loadbalancers, Icinga, Grafana, Graphite, NewRelic, Splunk and more.
You are familiar managing complex routing and redirection through software and network devices and can analyse traffic and system load to remove bottlenecks and identify how best we can deploy resources across the platform. You have a good grasp of tcp/ip, http and https and use this knowledge to help you analyse problems when they occur.
You will have considerable experience working alongside developers and testers to configure and tune systems built using Nginx, Node, Java, Scala, Clojure and Postgres.
You have an eye on the future, understand IaaS providers such as AWS and have an interest in using containerization and 12-factor applications to further improve the way we can leverage our investment in infrastructure.
Agile and DevOps
We're committed to agile development principles and require people who demonstrate a matching commitment, who understand what a good 'definition of done is', who support all elements of the work of the team from analysis, design, development, test and operations - team commitment is an essential part of our daily lives. You will want to be integral to the self organising team agile requires and have views on scrum vs kanban and other aspect of team organisation.
We are equally invested in our DevOps culture, breaking down functional barriers, working to understand operational concerns and addressing them as early on during our work as we can. You will fearlessly dive in and help your colleagues throughout the full delivery lifecycle.
