Senior DevOps Engineer

At Flexciton, we are leading the 4th industrial revolution by bringing A.I. to manufacturing. We build on pioneering research to completely revolutionise the way the manufacturing industry operates. Whilst only a young startup, we work with some of the largest and most advanced manufacturers in the world! 

We are here to transform the way the largest companies in the world make their products, by building a platform that is solving an extremely difficult problem - one that would be impossible for a human to solve. 

Our vision is to bring Flexciton A.I technology to every factory in the world to enable manufacturing to operate at a level never before possible.

About the role

Our team is pushing the boundaries of data science and optimisation, to create a revolutionary A.I. solution that manufacturers can use to save millions of pounds in operational costs and efficiency improvements.  We are selling groundbreaking technology in a relatively early market. We are looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join our team and contribute significantly to the ongoing operational responsibilities that we’re just beginning to get to grips with. If you’ve been working in an Infrastructure or DevOps team, are keen to keep doing technical work with an eye to taking on more responsibility and growing your leadership skills then this is the role for you!

As a Senior DevOps Engineer, you will be joining one of two Engineering teams that have delivery and operational responsibility for our systems, a true “DevOps” team. Your role will be crucial to developing and implementing DevOps strategies, building out our systems’ capabilities and managing the Continuous Delivery pipelines for the teams.

  • Taking part in and advising on changes to infrastructure architecture (Azure / Kubernetes / Docker / Postgres / Celery)
  • Understanding and improving our database architecture, usage and monitoring
  • Helping us achieve astonishingly high uptime figures by building in additional redundancy and resiliency into our systems and infrastructure
  • Defining and implementing Disaster Recovery strategies and associated architectures
  • Managing, maintaining and improving the CI / CD environment and tools
  • Assisting in the delivery of technical improvements to the software delivery process, such as the implementation of test and deployment automation
  • Encourage and empower development teams to think outside the box and embrace cloud-native technologies

What we are looking for:

  • Strong practical knowledge of AWS or Azure cloud infrastructure environments, Infrastructure as Code and cloud-native technologies
  • In-depth understanding of Kubernetes (Preferably AKS), the Kubernetes architecture and Docker
  • Good understanding of CI & CD processes and tools - specifically GitLab CI, Helm, FluxCD/Argo 
  • Strong knowledge of Terraform
  • Practical understanding of GitOps
  • Can program in Python 
  • Knowledge of cybersecurity practices and implementation would be a nice-to-have
