DevOps Engineer

London / remote

Do you want to Superpower Engineering? We’ve doubled in size over the last year and we have ambitious plans moving forward. It’s very exciting! To continue in our growth, we are recruiting a DevOps Engineer to drive us forward and help us improve our product.

What you’ll be doing:

As the first dedicated DevOps engineer you’ll be owning and improving the infrastructure deployment of the Monolith AI platform. We have separate isolated environments for different clients, and deploy on AWS, Azure, private clouds, and on-premise. You will be responsible for streamlining the deployment process, improving alerting, monitoring and observability of the system, and ensuring it remains reliable and highly available. You’ll also have ample opportunity to shape and expand your role as the company grows.

Let us tell you about the tech:

We have a microservice architecture using Docker containers. We use Hashicorp Terraform for spinning up infrastructure on our AWS accounts. We also have to support customers who use Azure as well. We use Ansible for instance provisioning, and Hashicorp Nomad + Consul for job orchestration. Our systems are highly available, using autoscaling groups and spot instances.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Improving and speeding up our infrastructure deployment on AWS.
  • Creating and maintaining support for infrastructure deployment on Azure.
  • Improving our deployment instructions and ease for deployment on private clouds
  • Setting up better self service management of environments, to allow other team members to easily deploy updates, see health checks, get alerts, and view logs.
  • Incident management, diagnosis and fixing of environments when issues arise.
  • Managing our internal infrastructure requirements, including CI/CD and machine learning experimentation work.
  • Handling cybersecurity of the system, including coordinating pen testing, making sure that customer data is secure, vulnerability/risk analysis, and providing InfoSec documentation.
  • Working with customers on custom deployments to ensure that their needs and constraints are met, and have good documentation.
  • Working with our software and data science teams to support any changing requirements of the platform, particularly around microservices, big data handling, and running machine learning workloads.

A bit about you:

  • You have experience with Terraform.  
  • You have a strong understanding of containerisation and Docker.  
  • You have experience of job orchestration (e.g. Nomad, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm).
  • You have deep cloud knowledge in at least one cloud platform (e.g. AWS, Azure).  
  • You have some experience of monitoring and observability.

It’s a bonus if you have:

  • Some experience with Ansible.
  • Hashicorp Nomad/Consul knowledge.
