At the Home Office, our task is simple - to keep the UK safe. Doing this means working across a huge range of projects, dealing with some of the most high-profile and important issues the country faces. But protecting millions of people requires cutting-edge technology platforms and brilliant engineers who can expand our capabilities. If you're talented, tenacious and forward-thinking, you'll find yourself in good company. Join us at the heart of government, take advantage of huge opportunities and help us build an unrivalled department.
You'll play a central role in maintaining and supporting our platforms, working across our Application Container Platform (ACP), a leading-edge system that allows us to achieve high-velocity development and take advantage of the latest AWS features. Whilst supporting the evolution of the ACP platform and advising on design constraints, best practice and cost implications you will also have responsibility for leading other engineers. As such this role is a great opportunity to further develop mentoring and leadership skills as you'll manage other team members. You will also be at the forefront of how we work with ACP, ensuring it matures to become a more powerful core platform for our services - you will be ideally placed to help plan out the roadmap, skills and technologies required.
You should already have experience in DevOps and cloud technologies, preferably including technical skills in AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, OpenVPN and GitLab. Familiarity with Keycloak, SonarQube, ELK and Sysdig are also a bonus. However, we will work with you to steer the balance between tech and technical leadership.
Whatever your role at the Home Office, we'll support your career plans and evolve your skills with exceptional tools, training and coaching. There's also a wealth of opportunity to move around and work across different teams. As a Civil Service employee, you'll be entitled to a wide range of benefits, including generous annual leave, flexible working, childcare and travel allowances, numerous staff networks and clubs, onsite facilities and a Civil Service pension.
