– Startup of London Team
You will be helping form OVO’s brand new Developer Experience team with the vision to enable product teams to confidently release and operate their services, no matter their level of knowledge of infrastructure, CI/CD, and networking. You’ll spend time coaching and guiding individual teams in best practices as well as identifying and solving problems that multiple teams face.
What will I be doing?
Teams within OVO are largely autonomous, with varied tech stacks and practices. As a Production Engineer in our central unit, you’ll work with embedded Prod Engs to help identify and establish common patterns and templates for all product teams to consume, enabling them to deploy production services faster, more efficiently, and more reliably. This role will allow you to leave a lasting mark on how engineering is done within the organization.
Working here you will likely encounter a range of technologies – however, we do not expect you to be an expert with them all! Things you are likely to encounter include Scala and NodeJS services running within AWS ECS or Lambda functions. Infrastructure as code defined by Terraform. CI pipelines run on CircleCI or GitHub Actions. Observability and alerting are handled by Datadog and OpsGenie.
Key responsibilities include:
Being a new team you’ll have plenty of opportunity to add your own ideas and shape how we grow. We’ll also have some operational responsibilities around Kafka and anything the DevEx team builds, but you can help shape how we do that with an automation and SRE mindset!
Is this the job for me?
We are looking for excellent engineers and while technological experience is important, equally important is a drive to raise the bar for engineers across all teams. The ideal candidate will understand that effectively engaging and communicating with software engineers is key to DevOps success.
Whilst we don’t expect you to be an expert in all of the below, the ideal candidate will have experience with some of these technologies and processes:
