Platform Engineer

We are hiring people who consider themselves to be cloud or devops engineers to join our Team and help to deliver Platforms as part of an innovative sector in the North West. We are always looking for good people; we are ready to go when you are.

We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. Every time someone joins the company, there is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective. We are always eager to continue to diversify our company. We are committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best and most fulfilling work of your career.

ABOUT THE JOB

You will be joining a team already producing innovative work within the National Security, Intelligence and Law Enforcement sectors. Our teams are efficient (Naimuri means no waste).

As a member of the Platforms team you will be supporting the wider company by providing expertise in Cloud Engineering and operating with DevSecOps best practice. This can mean providing guidance on designs, or producing designs, for Cloud infrastructure that is secure by design. Supporting development teams in how to operate CI/CD pipelines, as well as the ‘where’ and the ‘how’ the resulting workloads will run.

It can mean shaping and building core infrastructure pieces that allow the company to function, such as a VPN. In short we support development teams, the company, and customers in how to use the Cloud effectively.

The role requires defining best practices in these areas outwards of the team, as well as outwards of the company. Continually learning and then distilling that knowledge into reusable components, documentation, and guides.
You will need to be a self-starter, and be able to challenge existing knowledge and ideas. You will have experience in cloud technologies, containers and their orchestration, continuous integration and deployment and the DevOps lifecycle.

ABOUT THE TEAM

The Platform Team is a multi-skilled team working across a wide range of projects at Naimuri to provide consultancy of Cloud Platform and DevSecOps best practises.
