The Company:



My client is a software specialist who provide solutions for e-commerce retailers. They have a large team of frontend, backend and devops engineers and are looking to expand their resource in DevOps engineering.

Day to day activities will revolve around delivering a consistent and reliable platform, by administration of systems, working on maintenance and dealing with issues as they arise.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate:

  • Linux system administration (Fedora / Centos distros)
