London (Architecture and Design)


You're a GCP savant. A Cloud Engineering enthusiast. You're extremely good at what you do. You're the type of Engineer who believes in only doing things the "right way" - you certainly don't compromise on quality and you take what you so seriously. No cutting corners, no nonsense. You totally recognise the reasons behind a strong DevOps ethos and you're the type of Engineer who constantly pushes the boundaries with technology choices, striving to work with only the latest tools and techniques..

Do you want to take the reigns of the Cloud strategy for one of the UK's most exciting Fintech start-ups?

Look no further.

I'm looking for a Lead GCP / Google Cloud Platform guru to take ownership of the Cloud strategy for a cracking technology business. Having recruited for these guys since their conception, I have watched the business grow and seen their product has absolutely disrupted its industry. Despite their age, they are incredibly well-established and have built and shipped a product that is already being used by some of the biggest names in their industry and boast an enviable client based - but they haven't even scratched the surface yet.. In fact they've only just begun.

Having built a team of some of the most brightest, smartest and most likeable technologists in the market, we're now looking to ramp up their Cloud Engineering offering and this is where you come in…

Technically you'll have a good handle on platform engineering, DevOps or reliability engineering and have experience of operating a cloud environment via Infrastructure-as-Code principles.

You'll have solid GCP / Google Cloud Platform exposure and you won't be afraid to code in Terraform. Their software is written using an array of awesome tech including NodeJS, Python, Go, MongoDB and it's hosted on Google Cloud Platform, with Kubernetes, and Docker - they also use ReactJS amongst a host of other modern languages. As Lead Engineer this role will also entail some mentoring of more Junior Engineers within the team, too.

You'll join a mega bunch of people who all absolutely love what they do. There are no ego's here. There's very little (if any) hierarchy and what I LOVE about these guys is that they actively encourage a high degree of personal ownership - its only of the most highly collaborative teams I have seen, where everyone given the chance to contribute to architectural design and the decision-making process along the way. It's the type of team where everyone works hard but they also know how to have fun at the same time!

You'll be sharp, technically inquisitive and you'll thrive from taking on a challenging workload. If you are looking to work in a fast paced environment where designing and building code, infrastructure and systems to a high standard is expected - these are the guys for you!

In return you'll receive an awesome salary of up to £85k depending on your experience plus bonus scheme of up to 10%, pension scheme, 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) and life assurance. Oh… and your very own annual personal development budget (that can be used for anything within reason!) You'll also have the option of using 10% of your time for personal development and R&D and conference attendance is fully encouraged and supported. They are also very open to flexible working hours.

We're also happy for you to work remotely - or you can work from their offices in Nottingham or London post COVID.. whatever works best for you!
