DevOps Engineer

SaaS start-up

Our client is a VC-backed start-up on a mission to become the first vertically integrated florist software company.

The client

Since launching in 2016 they’ve been voted one of the top UK 100 startups two years in a row, as well as having created long lasting relationships with florists across all of the UK and New York.

They’re looking to give florists the tools to create and deliver bouquets to their communities. You’d be working on developing a tool that provides inventory management, a wholesale shop and even website builders and POS systems. It is the first vertically integrated SaaS for this area of the market, so lots for you to get stuck into!

The role

You’ll be collaborating closely with their multi-disciplinary team to build out their infrastructure. They are looking for someone who can help helping to set up new development tools and processes as well as help to mentor younger engineers – they’ve a huge show and tell culture that works really well for people wishing to kick on. They like to tackle any problems as a group, so it’s a chance to work in a close team who like to discuss any problems they encounter.

The candidate

They’re looking for someone who has an in-depth knowledge of working with AWS and building resilient architectures. You’ll ideally have worked with the likes of Kubernetes, Terraform, CDK and Cloud Formation before as well as having experience scaling SQL databases. Any prior work with Celery, RabbitMQ or Redis would be great.

These guys are very early on in the development of their product so there is a real opportunity for you to have input into how things are developed. They’re offering a salary of up to £80K (though have said they’ll go higher for the ideal person) as well as share options. They’re in the process of securing a new office in Central London (though are happy for you to work from home if you wanted to) and you’ll be joining a hungry, innovative team. You’ll also get a MacBook Pro and they’ve got lots of ideas for more perks in the future.

We welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our team includes parents, the self-taught, the university-educated, and people of a wide variety of nationalities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Obviously, we’re looking to ensure it’s a solid fit from both sides: we want you to step into a role you love, and we want to offer you a place you’re proud to come to every day for work.

We know that diverse teams are strong teams, and welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences to apply to be part of life at Zebra People. We are committed to a fair and accessible recruitment process for all candidates. We would be happy to meet any accommodation requests during the application or interview process, please just let us know.
