  • You’ll have >3 years experience in an Operational type role, with at least 2 of those in a DevOps role. We’d love to see evidence of other experience too, you might have been a sysadmin, network operations person, or worked in support in previous roles.
  • We believe that we work better as a team. You’ll be working in a diverse team of people with a variety of skills and backgrounds, a high level of emotional intelligence will be assumed. People skills are essential.
