DevOps Infrastructure Engineer
Highly Competitive plus benefits
As a DevOps engineer, your skills are in demand. You know that we know that, and our client knows that. You’ll need some good reasons to up sticks and move elsewhere. Here are a number of very good reasons indeed...
1. You’ll be working with a leading medical technology company, headquartered in state-of-the-art offices on the edge of Stirling and working in cutting edge areas of medical tech. They have grown rapidly, from a small business founded in 2014 by a dynamic team of scientists and entrepreneurs to a 600 person, global business with operations in the UK and USA.
2. Their new Platform is a really smart bit of kit. It has the potential to transform diagnosis of blood tests for a range of ailments (including the coronavirus), more easily, quickly and efficiently than anything else on the market today. Which is where you come in…
3. Your role will be to help ensure the software on their medical testing instruments is high quality, effective, usable, and accurate. As a key member of their agile software team, you’ll be working closely with hardware and biological assay experts to design new features and diagnostic capabilities into their products. This will involve helping to support build, development, and testing, using the latest techniques for containers, builds, pipelines, and interoperability, rapidly getting to grips with every aspect of the software platform and increasing the pace of development to allow new products to be brought to market.
4. More specifically, your responsibilities will include: enabling rapid and high-quality software releases that add new diagnostic medical tests; improving continuous integration and build system so everything works faster and more reliably; problem-spotting, solving and communication with testers and developers; using Github integrated with Jira and Jenkins pipelines, unit testing, code linting; using Jira and JAMA tools to organise tasks, tests, and requirements; automating tests using Python, Jenkins, Groovy, and BDD; and working with software which is built with Embedded C, git, Qt, Linux.
5. Ideally, you’ll have experience of automation tools Chef / Puppet / Ansible, plus scripting knowledge within Python / Embedded C / Linux, as well as experience of Docker / Kubernetes and Terraform and also of JIRA and JAMA tools, allied to a strong, general background in DevOps engineering and the ability to communicate with experts in every other area and at every other level of the business.
Reasons enough? This should have given you a good idea of what to expect, but it’s always better to have a chat and get a more detailed description of both the company and the job. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Call me, Michael Phair on 07534 454 637 or email Michael.Phair@Be-IT.co.uk
