On a technology basis, due to the vast amount of skills combinations, the main crux of this position is experience with CI/CD pipelines and Jenkins

On a day to day basis, you will be:

  • Ensureingthat you have an excellent understanding of the technical structure, domain and architecture of the Software release systems and how those systems are configured in the development and production estate.
  • Applying active governance around overall solution implementation, code quality and coding standards within the team
  • Ensuring the solutions are scalable and are able to deliver huge volumes of release that come through the teams.
  • Working with Architects, Development Managers and other colleagues in order to design and deliver technology solutions that solve business problems in line with the technical strategy of the department
  • Driving the provision of scalable, maintainable, and performant systems
