Ideally, you would have come from a start-up/small firm where you need to be good at everything, and excellent at some things. You’ll be used to working in a small team where social interaction is as high as the work rate. You’ll go the extra mile for the person sitting next to you as you know they would do the same thing for you. You’ll be used to having the freedom to make decisions without too much oversight – but at the same time you’ll own the responsibility to get things right. You like hoarding story points; you don’t necessarily want to share a Jira. You probably spend some time at home working on your own projects – you might have a decent gaming rig for example. Finally – you’ve started looking at blockchain and realised how powerful it is, how it’s going to change the future and how you really need to start working for the industry leader – R3.
Still reading? Good. Let’s dive into the detail as that’s where you feel most comfortable (as do the rest of us here). You’ll be responsible for the upkeep, configuration and reliable operation of R3’s Production, Testing, Staging and QA Environments plus any associated toolsets, such as DataDog, PagerDuty etc. You will seek to ensure that the uptime, performance, availability and security of those environments and associated resources is maintained to industry standards – 99.999% availability, SOC2 compliant etc. You will work alongside, and support our Customers, the Business, Development, Security Ops and other Technical teams within R3 – therefore being a team player, having a great personality, a sense of humour, being able to work under pressure, being empathetic towards different cultures, communicating effectively and hitting deadlines are all paramount to enjoying life at R3.
