Boomin is not another prop-tech business. We call ourselves a portal for the home, helping open-up the market for everyone interested in property. We're unlike any other existing business, and we'd like to speak with others who share our pioneering mindset to build the most agent- and customer-centric digital experience in the UK today.

The Role

We are looking for a professional Senior Cloud Platform Engineer with a minimum of 5 years' experience (in development or operations) to bring in-depth cloud knowledge and demonstrate strong interpersonal communication skills.

You will have a large amount of autonomy to do what is needed to succeed, a clear and meaningful purpose, and backing to demonstrate mastery of the trade. You will also have the support and freedom to employ industry-leading engineering practices, with a clear focus on customer needs.

Your Responsibilities

As a Cloud Platform Engineer, you will be responsible for developing capabilities in our platform in order to sustain a high-performance, reliable and scalable cloud-based architecture. You will work in the Platform Team supporting the application development teams by providing the technology, guidance around architecture and the cloud, and aiding those teams to develop effective build and deployment pipelines.

As with our application code, we depend on unit and integration tests to provide confidence that with each release the infrastructure will meet the highest quality standards. You must be conscious of business constraints around cost, security and performance in platform design. You will not be afraid to challenge ideas and opinions to avoid pitfalls and inefficient solutions.

The ideal candidate will;

  • Be technically adept and have a deep hands-on knowledge of cloud-based architectures.
  • Understand and advocate for the DevOps mindset and practices.
  • Be highly motivated, driven and adaptable.
  • Be passionate about learning.
  • Have experience providing mentorship for team members.
  • Take pride in well-written, quality code
  • Have demonstrable experience in maintaining strong technical standards in a fast-paced environment.
  • Ability to recognise and deliver against business needs.
  • Have familiarity with Pair Programming, and an interest in helping to grow the skills of your fellow engineers.


Whilst we value aptitude, attitude and the ability and willingness to learn above all else, experience in the following technologies would be beneficial;

  • Microsoft Azure
  • C# / .NET
  • Microservice architecture including monitoring of deployed services
  • SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery
  • Cloud Cognitive Services and/or Machine Learning
  • TDD
  • Any other awesome tech that does a great job

Skills in the following, however, are must-haves;

  • Cloud experience (preferably Azure)
  • Container and orchestration technologies, such as Docker or Kubernetes
  • Automation scripts, e.g. through the use of PowerShell
  • Infrastructure-as-Code
