Our client, a non-profit organisation, is seeking a Platform Engineer to join a small and enthusiastic Development Team who are passionate about continuous improvement and software quality. The current generation of their infrastructure is built on Kubernetes and is used consistently across the organisation to build and test open source products, run demos and deploy them for their existing production systems.

The main deployment target is AWS with GCP and cloud agnosticism coming as a close second. The successful candidate will have a keen understanding of good DevOps practices. You'll have the chance to work with their service provider partners to devise the simplest way to test and deploy our products, while being a key part of the Technology Team in supporting development, build pipelines, automated testing and deployed infrastructure. This is a unique opportunity to have a significant role in the coordination, development and adoption of our software systems and help make them available for the scientific community.

Key Skills

  • 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)
