Infrastructure Developer (DevOps)

Okay, we know DevOps is not a role, instead much more a philosophy - and we are searching for enthusiasts sharing our passion.

We help our customers to adopt DevOps methodologies, break out of rigid, traditional ways of working and move to more customer-focused and agile approaches. As a DevOps Consultant, you take responsibility for ensuring that the team and client are aware of the operational and development requirements.
As an Infrastructure Developer at ThoughtWorks you are responsible for designing, bringing and spreading the knowledge, ideas, and hands-on implementation skills needed to deliver and run software services. This involves hands-on involvement in building deployment and testing pipelines, automated provisioning of infrastructure and infrastructure support services. You will be depended upon for advice regarding the cross-functional aspects of user stories which may not always be obvious from the start. Watching out for performance bottlenecks and scaling pitfalls are all within the realms of an Infrastructure Developer at ThoughtWorks. In addition to your technical ability, at ThoughtWorks we strive to hire excellent coaches, so your patience and a desire to take others along with you, is absolutely key. 

  • You are the Ops in DevOps: You know what DevOps stands for.

  • You know how to work the cloud: You are very familiar and proficient in topics like virtualization, PaaS and IaaS. Resilience, performance and scalability are most important to you. You have a comprehensive and deep understanding of the architecture behind distributed, connected services and environments.
