This large Charity, based close to St Pauls Cathedral are currently changing their digital development capability and transitioning from PHP to Ruby and require a DevOps Engineer who will report to the Head of Software Engineering as they look to build a fantastic engineering team with permanent staff.

With a number of exciting internally and externally customer facing digital projects with opportunities for R&D Fridays and creative thinking.

This huge not-for-profit organisation offer a competitive salaries and a pension contribution of up to 6.5%.

The DevOps Engineer must have the following skills / experience.

- Experienced with Linux system administration

- Containerisation, you've kept up-to-date with the latest developments in container management systems (primarily Docker and the open container initiative)

- You've had experience using configuration management tools, ideally Chef and will have used this to configure large numbers of servers

- Continuous integration, they're currently using Jenkins and are moving to version 2 with the pipeline plug-in driven by Jenkins Files

- They need someone who can/likes to automate/set up a "solution", but the DevOps Engineer will also understand the bigger picture and how automation fits into everything else within the cloud infrastructure

- They have some AWS accounts/servers that are off-site with the company Cloud reach and they also have some AWS accounts on-site - they now want to take all of their off-site servers and migrate them to bring them all on site.

- The DevOps Engineer will primarily be working with AWS Cloud Formation.

- Would much prefer somebody from a bigger company who's used to process / red tape!

- Server estate is currently 90 / 10 Linux/Windows servers (some still bare-metal but most on the cloud now

- Applications should have a GitHub/BitBucket/other repository to showcase their experience.

- Hours are pretty much 9-5 and it's possible for people to work from home now and again

Tech stack: AWS (Cloud Formation), Jenkins, ideally Docker/Packer, Chef ideally, Ruby is the main language

This is a great chance for a DevOps Engineer who's looking for a standard office hour job (9-5) that pays well and offers a cutting edge and ever improving tech stack! The hiring manager is laid back but very switched on technically. Interview will be one stage including a short tech test (c 90 mins net)
