My client is seeking a seasoned DevOps engineer to lead the instrumentation, automation and ongoing operability of the global payroll platform services deployment architecture.

The successful candidate will be working on a global payroll project. They will be working on all aspects of availability, contagious integration and deployment and site infrastructure.


As a senior engineer you will lead components of the design, implementation and support of the global payroll platform services infrastructure solutions – including CI/CD pipelines, scalability solutions (elastic scaling, architecture swimlaning and data sharding), security, monitoring and alerting.  Above all there will be a focus on automating all aspects of the infrastructure and creating high quality tooling that enables engineering teams to ‘self-serve’.


This is a hands-on engineering position; the individual must have a superior command of technologies and have a passion for ‘going under the hood’ to understand how frameworks and tools function so they can deliver the highest quality solutions and resolutions to technical issues.
