Posted 15 October by aql

aql is a fast-paced, rapidly growing and award-winning datacentre & wholesale telecommunications company based in Leeds city centre. We provide services to many UK telecommunications operators and to thousands of large retail, government and other high profile organisations.

At aql, we’re building a DevOps culture with a focus on automation and continuous delivery and are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic engineer who can help deliver this.

You’ll be based in our unique Leeds city centre office and as part of a growing team you will be responsible for supporting, maintaining and expanding the aql systems estate and liaising closely with developers, networking and support teams.

The Role

Working in an energetic, fast-paced environment, you’ll have a 'can do' attitude and be able to show initiative and the ability to learn quickly. We are constantly evolving, so you’ll get to use all the latest tools and influence which are adopted for wider use.

You will be a member of our development team and act as the lead in building CI/CD infrastructure for the company's system estate. You will be working closely with other technical teams and therefore excellent communication skills and the ability to work to deadlines are essential.
