LendInvest is hiring a

DevOps Engineer

London, United Kingdom

What's the team is like?

We are using technology and innovation to make the process of owning and investing in property simple and straightforward. To date - we have loaned £1 billion, but we have set the bar much higher.

We're striving to build a proper DevOps culture and looking for people highly motivated in doing the same and able to collaborate proactively with our engineering team.

We rely heavily on AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Terraform, MySQL (with PHP, Node.js, Python and React.js for development) as well as a great number of additional applications for functions such as monitoring and networking (prometheus, grafana, ELK).

As the DevOps Engineer alongside our 3rd party DevOps company you'll be responsible for the infrastructure that keeps our platform moving. Relying entirely on cloud services, you'll make sure it works as securely & quickly as it should. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides the backbone of our infrastructure and we're looking for people who can maintain and expand our use of it

What's my day to day going to be like?

  • Support & expand - Maintain our AWS-hosted infrastructure.
  • You'll need to monitor and proactively plan and configure aspects of the infrastructure as well as liaising with other parties both internal and externally to improve our performance and improve reliability.
  • As you would expect with a role such as this, when situations arise you may need to react to outages outside of the business day, to either deal with an issue or act as an escalation point
  • Coaching and mentoring the team - coach the wider engineering team on DevOps best practice including providing guidance and training.

What we need you to have:

  • We expect you to be confident with AWS and having good experience with Kubernates, Docker, Terraform and Jenkins.
  • You'll have to try and experiment new tools so it's essential you are able to achieve a balance between a great product and project constraints and to learn how to install, configure and optimze them quickly.
  • We'd like you to be a great team player, knowledge sharing and collaboration is our way. We work in small iteration and we believe that constant improvements are the key to achieve great results.
