Job title: Head of DevOps / Principle DevOps Engineer
Location: Peckham (South East London)
Salary: very competitive and negotiable, mix of cash and stock options

A disruptive insurance technology start-up is looking for a Head of DevOps.

The company was founded by 2 experienced actuaries with a computer science background. Fed up with the lack of appropriate tools on the market, they decided to quit their office jobs to build an elegant and easy to use set of tools for people like themselves - actuaries dealing with mountains of information using 'oldschool' methods - to make their lives easier.

6 months later, they now have a fully functioning proof of concept, completed first round of seed funding and have just signed their ex-employer as their first client!

Due to the stage of the business, this role will initially be more of a Principle DevOps Engineer (therefore you need to be a confident hands-on engineer), but it will grow into a Head of DevOps in time as you'll grow a team underneath you. Managerial experience is not required, however, and technical capabilities are much more important at this point.

They are very open-minded with regards to the tech stack, but would prefer candidates with Linux background and AWS experience.

This is a perfect opportunity for an experienced engineer wanting to progress into a managerial role. You'll be working very closely with both the co-founders and you'll have an enormous level of autonomy to shape how the DevOps function (and the team reporting to you) will look like in the future.

On top of the exciting times ahead, joining such an early stage start-up offers very good commercial rewards in the form of stock options, so if the above sounds like a challenge you'd love to take on, please apply now.
