To be successful you will need to have experience in a Linux environment, as a 2nd/3rd line engineer and be confident understanding SQL. We are also looking for people who have experience of virtualisation, or preferably cloud environments and/or had exposure to SaaS applications, within an agile working practices background.

The skills you will develop in this role will include:

  • Scripting in bash or python
  • MySQL/MariaDB
