About this role
By utilising DevOps, businesses deliver systems faster, cheaper and without sacrificing high quality. It is an environment, a philosophical mindset and a real-world framework and just as the title says it brings together development and operations so that organisations can create stable, repeatable platforms for product deployment.
To become a DevOps specialist you need to have both technical and soft skills to seamlessly integrate with multiple teams. Engineers use tools to deploy infrastructure as code, create automation and test the platform during deployment and hook in monitoring systems for rapid up to date reporting.
- As a DevOps Engineer, you will be collaborating with the development and operations teams to automate the deployment of applications to multiple environments.
- You will be responsible for monitoring the health and performance of systems and troubleshooting issues as they arise.
- You will implement and maintain infrastructure as code to manage and provision resources effectively, while contributing to the development and improvement of DevOps practises and processes
