Overview

Don’t you hate doing, and seeing companies, not utilising IT Infrastructure to the full potential? Do you want to play a pivotal role in delivering the infrastructure to host our best-in-class application? Zopa is looking for a Senior Infrastructure Engineer to guide the IT team success.

You will help to develop the Zopa IT infrastructure.  Currently spread across two datacentres and looking to get fully engulfed in the cloud there is a large amount of evolution required.  By guiding the team and helping them to design and support the various technology infrastructure you will help Zopa grow.

From having lent £1.8 billion to date over the last 10 years, with £700 million lent in just the last 12 months, the amount of information we need to store, process and analyse is only going to grow and we need the technology, best practices and in-house skills to support this.

Our goal over the next year is to overhaul the existing infrastructure from both a hardware and software perspective.  Migration of services and environments to AWS, moving to an event sourcing based data capture using Kafka, increased emphasis on security and durability are just some of the key areas we are looking to address. We’re looking for the knowledge, skills and experience to help design, build and support these projects.
