Systems Engineer / SRE Leeds to £95k

Systems Engineer / SRE (IaC CI/CD Terraform Prometheus AWS). Are you a technologist seeking a role where you can work with the latest technologies, build systems from scratch and get stuff done with little red tape to restrict you? You could be joining a fast growing FinTech that is helping to revolutionise consumer banking through the use of advanced data centric, SaaS cloud based banking technology.

As a Systems Engineer / SRE you will join a small team that combines software and systems engineering to build and run large scale, massively distributed, fault-tolerant systems deployed to AWS. You'll have oversight of how systems relate to each other; limit time spent on operational tasks; automate wherever possible; carryout blameless post-mortems and proactively identify potential outages, continually iterating to make improvements.

You'll spending your day engaging in and improving the whole lifecycle from inception and design through to deployment, operation and refinement and supporting services before they go live via system design consulting, developing software platforms and frameworks, capacity planning and launch reviews. Then once systems are live you'll be monitoring and measuring availability, latency and overall system health and providing scalability.

As a senior member of the team you'll have a great deal of input into technical discussions and decisions and help to mentor more junior team members.

Driven by technology the company can offer a remote interview / process and 100% work from home during the current social distancing measures with 3-4 days a week WFH thereafter. When you're in the office you can enjoy a great team environment with spacious dining area, continuous supply of breakfast, snacks and drinks as well as games rooms and quiet spaces.

Requirements:

  • Experience in a similar SRE / Infrastructure role
  • Good appreciation of IaC (Infrastructure as Code), CI/CD and modern tooling such as Terraform, Concourse, Jenkins
  • Monitoring and Tracing experience - you'll be using Prometheus and Honeycomb
  • Good knowledge of AWS
  • Ability to script (or code ideally) with Python, Go, Perl, Ruby, C, C++ or Java
  • Good knowledge of algorithms, data structures, complexity analysis and software design
  • Familiar with DevOps environments / Containerisation (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Excellent communication skills; collaborative and personable - happy to help take a lead on projects and provide mentoring

As a Systems Engineer / SRE you will earn a competitive salary (to £95k) plus benefits.
