A fantastic opportunity has now arisen for a DevOps Engineer to join one of the UK’s most exciting web development agencies. As Magento certified experts, they operate in the eCommerce sector, creating some of the most intelligible, scalable and imaginative solutions available. 

As the company approaches their 22nd birthday, they can look back at their achievements and be proud of the hundreds of applications they have built and supported. They have primarily worked in Magento and WordPress for clients in the UK but have also created bespoke applications and undertaken projects for companies in the global spectrum. 

As a DevOps Engineer, you’ll be tasked with taking ownership of hosting operations and working alongside the Development Team on unique and engaging projects. 

You’ll be playing a vital role in our client’s busy agency environment, supporting the environment that allows them to build and run PHP and MySQL applications. This is run almost exclusively on Ubuntu Linux using cloud computing and server racks located in Manchester. 

Our client is currently undertaking a migration from physical to the cloud and you will be involved in the project to decrease their reliance on dedicated servers. 

Handling an element of support tickets from the customer base, you’ll deal with high level website failures or significant slow-downs, server, firewall and DNS issues and development problems. Additionally, you’ll respond to outage, disk space and failed backup incidents. 

This is an amazing opportunity for a LAMP hosting professional to get involved with a thriving tech business. The company boasts a great open-plan layout with an exciting and engaged team of 22 talented people. You’ll discover a laid-back dress code, a bunch of fantastic benefits, your choice of Apple tech and a unique chance to pursue your DevOps career. 

To be considered, you’ll need experience of LAMP hosting and knowledge of a configuration management language such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef. You’ll also need some great debugging skills. 

Our client works primarily in Magento so experience of this platform would be highly beneficial, however familiarity with PHP based applications will be a promising start. 

Equally, the ideal DevOps Engineer will also have an understanding or experience of Ruby, C, Go or Java as many application or systems our client is involved with are based around these technologies.
