    A minimum of 3 years in engineering roles, focusing on DevOps or platform engineering.
    Profound knowledge of AWS, cloud automation tools like Terraform, containerisation (Docker, Kubernetes), ELK stack, MySQL and SQL Server databases, configuration management systems (Puppet), and monitoring tools (Prometheus, Grafana).
    Strong expertise in networking, documentation, web technologies (including HTTP caching, Linux OS, Elasticsearch).
    Exceptional troubleshooting skills, and the ability to use monitoring and metrics for operational advancements.
    Fluency in English (both written and spoken) and a standout performer in a remote-first work environment.

    Familiarity with .Net Framework (C#).
    A robust grasp of deployment processes via GitHub.
    Keen interest in embracing and implementing AI tooling.

    As our pioneering DevOps/Platform Engineer, you will lead and implement our platform infrastructure, collaborating with our Platform Tech-lead and development team. Your day-to-day will include:

    Crafting and maintaining a scalable, highly available cloud infrastructure, perfectly tailored to our needs.
    Automating infrastructure provisioning and configuration using Terraform scripts.
    Streamlining our CI/CD pipelines with Github Workflows for seamless software deployment.
    Managing containerised applications using AWS services (Amazon ECS or EKS) and orchestrating with Docker and Kubernetes.
    Applying Infrastructure as Code principles to manage our infrastructure resources efficiently.
    Developing and overseeing monitoring and logging solutions to ensure peak performance and health of our platform.
    Collaborating closely with development and Service Teams to guarantee minimal downtime and continual operational improvements.
    Crafting and maintaining disaster recovery plans, bolstering the resilience of our cloud-based systems.
    Tackling performance bottlenecks, optimising AWS resources, and incorporating best practices for maximum efficiency.
    Creating and updating technical documentation for our AWS infrastructure, deployment processes, and best practices.
    Taking the helm in developing our DevOps/Platform area in close partnership with our Tech-lead.
