Salary Circa: £75k to £85k + Benefits

We think differently. We make the unbelievable happen. We are changing the future of how people buy cars. Technology is key to the future of the business and as we grow and look to scale in the Automotive industry, DevOps is vital in supporting the delivery of cutting edge solutions for the Automotive industry.


About the Role
This is a valuable and potentially career shaping opportunity for a Senior DevOps Engineer looking to progress, or an experienced Lead DevOps to take the helm of an expanding DevOps function, as we build out our tech capability within the UK.

  • The Lead DevOps Engineer will manage delivery and performance of a small team of DevOps Engineers, alongside responsibility for maintaining and developing CI/CD pipelines in DevOps and the build of client environments in Microsoft Azure, or other public cloud providers.

  • This individual will be adept at influencing and building relationships as you work closely with both clients, in-house and third-party Developers to successfully deliver across projects.

The Automotive teams are based from central London (Soho) and Warwick, with third-party teams in Romania.  These are fast and challenging multi-national projects to gain exposure on, which is a critical hire for the business even during these uncertain COVID dominated times. Whilst the role will eventually be working full-time from Warwick on a permanent basis, the current climate means that the role will initially be fully home based.
