The work

You will be working in full stack, close-knit teams developing and delivering some of the most innovative software solutions available for our clients, using Microsoft Azure technologies.

  • Support services before they go live through activities such as system design consulting, developing software platforms, frameworks, automated testing, deployment and release pipelines, capacity planning and launch reviews. 

  • Maintain services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, errors, saturation, traffic and overall system health. 

  • Scale systems sustainably through mechanisms like automation and evolve systems by pushing for changes that improve reliability and release velocity. 

  • Help define processes and standards, following Open Source best practices and keeping abreast of industry trends. 

Why you?

  • Experience of Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD), ideally using Azure DevOps

  • Designing microservice-based architectures using domain driven design (DDD), CQRS and Event Sourcing patterns 

  • Hold one or more Azure or .NET certifications
