Introduction

We are looking for a DevOps Architect familiar with AWS cloud solutions and Continuous Delivery methodologies. The successful candidate is someone who is motivated to combine the art software development with the science of infrastructure design.

The successful candidate will be responsible for working with a small team of experts, ensuring that our solutions meet their very stringent security, availability, redundancy and scalability requirements. Our clients are banks and insurance companies from around the world, and require us to meet the highest measurable standards available.

Our development team is adding new features and capabilities in 2 week agile sprints. The right candidate will help the company build delivery and deployment capabilities which are best practice, highly scalable and allow for quick deployments.

Our operations are 24/7, so after hours availability is a must in the event of critical incidents.
