We are working with a well-funded established start-up in the IoT connected car space who are looking to set up a DevOps environment. It is looking for a DevOps Engineer who has experience with AWS cloud to help build, scale and deploy a microservices-based platform.
Our client offers customers the ability to track the performance and maintenance of their cars with the use of an app. Through its IoT technology, it can measure tire pressure, braking ability, engine derogation and much more. It can also send this data through to 3rd parties i.e., breakdown cover companies so they can see if there is a problem with the car and potentially fix it remotely.
As a DevOps Engineer, you would join a small but highly skilled team of Software & Data Engineers, Data-Scientists and Product Managers working in an Agile environment. A DevOps environment has been initially developed but it certainly needs some work and that’s where you come in! You will be responsible for assessing the current state of the platform and be accountable for building it out and making it scalable. You will need to have experience with network security, CI/CD pipeline building/deployment and AWS infrastructure.
It’s important to note that you will be the sole DevOps Engineer on the team, we are looking for someone at a mid-senior level. The DevOps environment is not in a mature state so you will have to have enough experience to guild the team in the right direction and make important decisions around the platform. As it is a microservices environment as well, experience here will be important, if not 100% essential.
From a tech perspective…
- Experience with AWS services is essential
- Good knowledge of GitLab or GitHub
- Happy working with Terraform and Ansible
- Interest in delivering both cloud security and developer tooling
- A strong grasp on infrastructure as code
- Broader development experience, web services, scripting, Docker, CI/CD
We have been working with this client for several years and have a very strong relationship with the engineering team. As a result, we have a lot of additional info we can share on the client culture, company background and team itself. If you are interested, please send through a CV.
