Job Description

You will play a key part in the evolution of Devops within an Enterprise scale insurance organisation, as their Azure Devops Lead. This is a varied role which will see you utilise hands on practical skills, as well as provide technical guidance to support CI/CD processes.

The role will work within the delivery function working closely with key stakeholders, project and scrum teams, and although it will have a primary focus on cloud technologies, it will also involve on premise servers and deployments.

Your duties as an Azure Devops Lead will include but not be limited to the following:

  • Build, upgrade and improve our development, test and production environments
  • Manage and develop efficient continuous build and delivery pipelines
  • Monitor hardware and application environments and troubleshoot issues to ensure application performance, security and resilience

The Successful Azure Devops Lead

You MUST be an experienced DevOps Developer with 2+ years' experience with MS Azure and Azure DevOps, Kubernetes and Kubeless, Docker, HELM and associated Azure CI/CD pipeline technology.

You will be a collaborator who enjoys sharing ideas, and working with business stakeholders and other technical areas of expertise to achieve common goals, as such first class communication skills are key.

Being an advocate for Devops, you will champion this culture, and be able to clearly sell the benefits to non-technical stakeholders.

It is important that you are able to work to deadlines, and deliver solutions at speed, and to a high standard, helping to guide others to achieve their goals.

What's on Offer for the successful Azure Devops Lead

Competitive base salary depending on experience, coupled with a good benefits package, bonus, and a good degree of flexible working, with 1-2 days a week in Hampshire offices.
