Overview

IB Boost is a software development and services house based in London. We produce automation tools for enterprises and government for data integration, business intelligence, Robotic Process Automation and testing automation, from standalone products to fully managed service platforms in the cloud. We have our own software tool suites that are leaders in their niches and are about to be pushed to broader markets and we need people to help us achieve this growth.

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer to join our team, and are flexible in regards to your experience level – for us it’s more about motivations and skill sets than experience.

As a DevOps Engineer, your role will vary based on client and internal needs but to give you an idea, you could find yourself involved with:

  • Continuous improvement of DevOps practices
  • Acting as an infrastructure and cloud expert on projects
  • Automating business processes
  • Improving the overall efficiency of our services and offerings
  • Promoting DevOps ways of working across the company

You will be most suited to these roles if you have experience with:

  • AWS and/or Azure (both ideally but the concepts translate)
  • Managing and deploying scalable service-based application stacks
  • SecOps concepts (key management, intrusion detection, firewalls, etc.)
  • Scripting (e.g. Bash/Korn, Groovy, Python, etc.)
  • Linux (especially Centos/RHEL and Ubuntu)
  • Installing and maintaining databases (RDBMS and T-SQL; MySQL/MariaDB especially but Postgres, Sybase, MS SQL, and Oracle all valuable on different clients)
  • Infrastructure organisation and management experience, particularly virtualization and containerisation (Docker, KVM, VMWare, Azure Stack, Open Stack, K8s, etc.)
  • Configuration and release management (DevOps tools particular Jenkins, Ansible, Vagrant, Packer and Nexus, and equivalents)
  • Operational management tools for the modern web (ElasticSearch, Kibana, Grafana, Matomo, Telegraf, etc.)
  • Source control systems (Git especially)
  • Debugging production issues in live environments

For us, hiring is not a box-ticking exercise – we put a lot of effort into finding people with the right drive, ambition and attitude. We are hiring directly so send us your CV and cover letter explaining what you can bring to IB Boost.

If you enjoy installing Linux distros, complaining about Azure API shortcomings, arguing about why colleagues should or should not buy an RTX 2080 Ti, can tolerate egg-based memes, enjoy watching or participating in eating challenges, and generally want to automate the heck out of everything then we’re probably for you. So tell us about it!

Due to our work with government clients, candidates must be able to pass UK Security Clearance at the current time.

Please note: You must have the right to work in the UK to be considered for this position.
