Job Description

SoCode has partnered with a fast growing not for profit business with an innovative vision for the scientific community. This is a small, brilliant team who are passionate about quality processes and can make a significant impact to the coordination, development and adoptions of their software systems.

They’re looking for a DevOps Engineer to maintain and improve their infrastructure. Their environment is focussed on Kubernetes, to build and test open source products for their existing production systems. They have a hybrid cloud environment, using AWS and GCP, but no cloud experience is necessary if you come from a good DevOps practices background.

Their current tech stack is below; however, you will be able to influence adoption of new technologies if successful:

  • Infrastructure is defined in code and automated using Terraform and Helm.
  • Portable, open server technology (Vagrant, Docker, Docker Compose, Kubernetes, Nginx).
  • Open languages and frameworks (Node.js, Express, React, Redux, Webpack, SASS, Python).
  • Open-source continuous integration and testing (Selenium, Jenkins, Jest, Pytest).
  • Relational and document databases (Postgres, Redis, Elasticsearch).
  • Monitoring, logging and metrics (New Relic and Loggly).
  • Messaging (SQS, RabbitMQ)

The benefits package:

  • This is a permanent role working 37.5 hours per week, with upto two days remote working per week.
  • The chance to join a passionate and motivated team
  • A great environment for your personal and professional development
  • 25 days’ holiday, plus bank holidays
  • An open, communicative and inspiring working environment
  • A newly refurbished and employee designed modern office near the centre of Cambridge
  • Covered cycle parking, shower facilities, informal working or relaxation areas, free fresh fruit, a fancy coffee machine and snacks in the kitchen
  • A sociable and friendly team with interesting social events
  • A flexible approach to working hours
  • Company pension scheme
