Why are we hiring?

We’re growing! We are looking at strengthening our fantastic DevOps team and are looking for a junior candidate to join our friendly team. 

What level is the role?

We are looking for junior candidates that will be the right fit for our culture and approach. While relevant experience matters, fitting into our team is of the utmost importance. 

You will

  • Deliver Results
    You will work in a blame-free yet highly outcome driven environment. You will see how our team is committed to add value and deliver results, and learn the skills and attitude to thrive as you develop your career.

  • Earn Trust
    We want people who can listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. You are confident enough to be vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. We benchmark ourselves and our teams against the best and want you to be able to do so too. You will be humble and open minded.

As part of a self-driven and agile team, you will be learning alongside mentors and experienced colleagues to improve the product, support your colleagues design and implement cool new features, and learn the fundamentals of the role.
