Are you a highly experienced, hands-on DevOps professional, passionate about the adoption of DevOps and Cloud services?

We’re looking for a Director of DevOps to take on a pivotal role in the adoption of the Cloud across one of the UK’s leading healthcare software solutions providers, as well as with external private and public sector organisations, innovating the UK healthcare IT market.

You will lead on their DevOps strategy, driving new and existing DevOps initiatives, effectively communicating with the development and operations teams to orchestrate the creation of new SaaS solutions at scale within healthcare. You’ll also provide direction and management for their UK Cloud, Internal Systems and Security teams.

Your experience and skills…

A self-motivated individual and confident communicator able to build strong collaborative working relationships. Leading from the front you’ll inspire and engage those you’re working with. You’re highly organised with an eye for detail and excellent time management.

You have:

  • Proven experience in leading in DevOps and Cloud environments
  • Managerial experience in Information and Cyber Security
  • A strong understanding of networking concepts, configuration management tools
  • Familiarity with continuous integration tools, scripting languages such as Python or Javascript
  • Understanding of System Administration in Microsoft Windows environments
  • An ability to drive to goals and milestones while valuing and maintaining a strong attention to detail
  • Excellent judgement, analytical thinking and problem solving skills

If you have any prior experience of delivering a SaaS product, understanding of micro-services or related architectures, and knowledge of containerisation technologies this would be beneficial, as would CISSP or AWS DevOps certification.
French language skills are desirable, but it’s not essential.

What they’re offering…

It’s a highly influential role where you will have real impact, leading on DevOps and Cloud for the group and clients. You’ll be taking DevOps and the Cloud forward in the UK, establishing and evolving a traditional Infra team into a modern DevOps team and environment.

You’ll be joining a friendly, professional and focused team that promotes a culture where everyone pulls together; they are really passionate about the solutions they deliver and the impact these have on healthcare services all across the UK.

There’s a competitive salary with an excellent range of employee benefits - including matched pension, health cash plan and a well-being allowance.
