We are developing a fully automated and scalable hybrid cloud platform spanning on­premise and public cloud infrastructures. With a primary focus on Kubernetes, we are designing solutions to enable our development teams to get resilient, high performance and production ready services to support their applications, while ensuring that we can scale the platform and supporting services out to multiple sites around the world in a fully automated way.

As part of this initiative we are building a Configuration & Deployment Team who will take the responsibility of the complex problem of configuration and release management across these fulfilment centres. We are building a the team with a strong focus on DevOps and focusing on faster time to market, low failure rate of new releases, short lead time between fixes and a fast mean time to recovery. You will be working closely with the stakeholders across our business including development teams, infrastructure team and the operations teams running our fulfilment centres.  

You may also have responsibilities that relate solely to your local office or country e.g. HR and other office­based responsibilities, for which you will take direction from your local Head of Office. Your roles and responsibilities will likely change inline with business needs and as the company grows.
