They are looking for two influential engineers to help move their technology stack forward  to help realise our customers’ technical transformation. With good AWS production experience over the last 3 – 5 years, you will get to work extensively with Kubernetes as they continue to migrate from Docker Swarm.

There are various directions your career can take in this company; that include technical or people leadership, or a route to Architect in the future. And they are keen to support you in your training.


We asked what the person recruiting for these roles loves about working here and they said:

“ We’re a dynamic company and the culture is fun, sociable and open. We’re multi-cultured, and engineers are encouraged to express themselves technically. There’s a lot of variety and no such things as BAU as there’s always new things going on to challenge us. We’re great at supporting people and growing from within and our CTO is an example of that.”
