London, City of London - Greater London


£70,000 - £90,000 per annum



Role Description

With responsibility for reliability, automation and other issues related to providing infrastructure, Site Reliability Engineers are hybrid systems and software engineers.

We're interested in doing engineering – not administration. We're responsible for enabling growth and scaling while at all times ensuring the availability of the services we deliver.


  • Automate server provisioning in order to support the rapid pace of development and to scale services efficiently.
  • Provide first class monitoring of the entire estate in order to facilitate auto-recovery.
  • Help ensure user-visible uptime and quality of the services we provide.
  • Give guidance to developers in automating routine tasks.
  • Build and deploy the tooling that enables us to deliver all of the above.


  • Essential: Debian based Linux, Puppet, Git
  • Desired: VMWare, Zabbix, ElasticSearch, Kibana, Splunk
  • Proficient programming ability in a mainstream systems language such as Perl, Python or Go (not including Bash)


  • Experience working in a high-traffic web environment.
  • Understanding of networking fundamentals
  • A desire to engineer and not administrate. But - importantly - balance this against short term business needs.
  • An understanding of the principles of continuous delivery and how to implement them.
  • The ability to span teams and technologies: we're looking for a T-shaped person.

If you are interested in applying please forward a copy of your latest CV which has a full description of the technologies you utilise on a daily basis and how you work with them.
