Senior DevOps Engineer

You will be working for Huddle as Senior DevOps Engineer

With a growing number of production systems in the UK and US, and a constantly evolving software architecture, support and maintenance of Huddle production environments; planning and deployment of new releases, troubleshooting errors, predicting and responding to system alerts, is becoming a larger challenge.
Working closely with Huddle’s architects to design and implement changes to our software architecture, a Senior DevOps Engineer at must know everything from the browser to the SQL Server backend. Picking up new technologies quickly, our Release Engineer will have the depth and experience to know what's going to work (or not) and to challenge common misconceptions. TechOps is a tightly knitted with Huddle's developers, QAs, architects and product managers. Together we're building an amazing product which is making waves in the industry, meaning you’ll have to:

  • Take a senior role in the Technical Operations team, leading hands-on engineering projects while providing technical and tactical guidance to other team members

  • Increase our agility by developing rig build automation, faster and more flexible deployment techniques, powerful configuration management

  • Design and build out infrastructural enhancements to improve security, performance, and scalability of production systems

  • Break down the traditional barriers between Dev and Ops: Devs build it, with our help. We operate it, with their help. Accountability and ownership are key.

  • Support and maintain the production systems: new releases, diagnostics, monitoring and fire-fighting (including on-call cover for urgent issues)

  • Help Customer Support by providing 3rd line support for hardest problems faced by end users

    In order to do this, we’d hope the Senior DevOps Engineer would have:

  • Experience with IIS, ASP.NET-based websites and .NET Windows Services, with high availability requirements.

  • Worked on continuous Integration, build automation, test automation, and configuration management

  • Experience with physical and cloud-oriented server build automation

  • A solid grasp of web technologies: HTTP(S), RESTful APIs, CDNs, proxies, TCP/IP

  • Scripting skills (eg. PowerShell, Ruby, Python)

  • Some familiarity with C# and ASP.NET, and Visual Studio.

    This is an opportunity to take ownership of sizeable production system, where you can help shape how we release and how the production systems will grow moving forward. If you're interested, please do get in touch.

  • Great benefits: health insurance, pension, life insurance and stock options

  • 25 days of holiday plus your birthday off each year

  • The Huddle Cuddle – a £500 lifestyle bonus per year as a thank you for your hard work
