As a DevOps Engineer at Ascent, you will be at the heart of the evolution of DevOps culture on a range of challenging and interesting customer projects. You’ll join our team of DevOps experts, and work typically as part of a cross-functional team on customer projects, supporting their journey through digital transformation, or helping them do existing things in a much better way. 


What you’ll do 

Depending on the project, your daily responsibilities could be pretty varied, but typically our DevOps Engineers: 

  • Understand, build and maintain systems that deliver platform services in a repeatable, scalable, secure, auditable way 

  • Drive automation within the utilising Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and develop scalable practices 

  • Play a collaborative role as a DevOps engineer, 

  • Coaching peers and supporting them to grow knowledge of Azure Cloud, Automation, Infrastructure as Code, and DevOps. 

  • Keep up to date with industry trends, and current, and emerging technologies and dissipate information to your fellow DevOps practitioners and across the business 

You’ll also get called on from time to time to support Ascent marketing colleagues, pre-sales teams, and key partners with some DevOps subject matter expertise. We’re adding to a strong team of real DevOps experts in our business, so this is a great time to join us as we’re growing in our core locations across the UK, Malta, Bulgaria, Portugal, and Germany. 


Skills and Experience 

We’re looking for people with a true passion for DevOps culture. You will bring with you some skills and experience which demonstrate: 

  • Your deep understanding of Azure and Microsoft cloud services and applications 

  • Experience in Terraform for deploying Azure Infrastructure as Code 

  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines on Azure DevOps 

  • Experience in the creation of and delivery of platform services 

  • Skills in managing containerization solutions in a production environment. 

  • Knowledge of container orchestration technologies, preferably Kubernetes 

  • Good general understanding of Security and Security practices (DevSecOps) 

You need to show you have knowledge of designing and creating containerized CI/CD pipelines and expertise in automation tools and configuration management e.g. Terraform and Ansible. It will be an asset if you have expertise in logging, monitoring, and tracking solutions for a microservice architecture. Any experience with real-time data processing and a good understanding of code, and experience with databases would be great to have.

This is a hybrid role, where you can spend time at the office or work from home. This is a company where your development and learning will be taken seriously, and we'll support your professional development with training and certification, with regular feedback and review.
