Technical Skills of Interest?
Automation: looking for people to scale up infrastructure and write code to automate each specific platform and they want a faster production onto the market.
As an organisation, they see Dev Ops as a culture rather than a specific skill set so it's more about versatility and any combination of development/operations/infrastructure experience.
They are ideally looking for engineers across the following skill sets;
AWS, azure, google compute, and cloud based products.
Terraform would be amazing
Extremely agile - TDD and paired programming
Configuration Management - Puppet is the main tool, also use SaltStack
Docker is key in the new platform
Plug and Play
Culture is key - Driving Automation
They would also be interested in speaking to people who are keen to explore DevOps. Provided you have completed some personal projects and explored a host of technologies then they would be keen to hear from you. Working as part of a consultancy, you will be operating in a client facing role so you should be personable and able to confidently articulate themselves.
If you would like to cross train into another area then this can be achieved. This will provide the opportunity, for example to move into Java/Scala/Big Data/Front End space
You would be expected to go onto at least 8 days' worth of conferences/training courses each year and recent ones have included:
o Red Hat (in house training)
o Elastic Search (in house training)
o DockerCon in Barcelona
o They speak at London Docker meet up monthly
o Container Shed Golang Camp in Shoreditch
o You are flown out and have full expenses paid at any conference that you are a speaker at!
When you are between projects they are experimenting in the block chain space, doing lots of proof of concepts for many of the major banks. You can also use this time to cross train to different areas of the business. Work on there open source tools. Also you can do some work on the smaller container based start-up work. The client can also offer flexible working, eg: start late Monday Finish early Friday
