I'm currently working alongside a client based in Staffordshire, who is looking to secure an experienced Site Reliability Engineer to join the MIS (Management information system) Team.

The Role:

You will be the lead Linux expert within the business working with multiple development teams across numerous PHP technology stacks, ensuring the stable, safe release flow of code pipelines alongside ensuring the base Linux environment is fit for purpose and healthy according to the specific needs of each project and the business.

You'll be an expert resource for these teams, bridging the gap between traditional operations teams and separate development teams in order to ensure that the developers are operating within the parameters of the infrastructure, or conversely redesigning the infrastructure to suit the needs of upcoming projects and plans from the development teams.

What's expected of you?
*The safe & secure release of code into the estate (working with development teams)
* Ensuring that the Linux infrastructure is healthy, secure, and up to date on all code versions
* Providing intelligence and insight about the infrastructure into the development teams
* Maintaining associated monitoring systems such as "New Relic" to ensure that intelligence about the platforms at all layers is available to all teams.

What are you responsible for?

* Designing, developing, and managing automated security tooling for infrastructure at scale
* Establish and continuously enhance CI\CD pipeline tooling and practices for the benefit of process automation and expediency, including ceremonies such as sprints, retrospectives, reviews and backlog pruning
* Assist with the reduction of vulnerabilities in the build and deploy process
* Work with internal and external teams for the purpose of root-cause identification and fix implementation
* A primary point of contact for the security of our high-availability eCommerce environments by testing/tuning of security capabilities and including managing access, reporting, alerting and advocating for exemplary posture.
* Architectural design and implementation of networks and infrastructure used by our complex UAT, staging and production environments.
* Research, examination and implementation of new security services and open-source tools to complement our estates
* Maintain eCommerce specific technical documentation
* Attend sprint planning events to ensure all work is considered, not just development

What you will need (Qualifications / Skills):
Base Technologies - 3+ years
PHP 7.x
Reddis Clusters
Elastic Clusters
Ansible / Puppet / Automation
Content Delivery Networks
Core Infrastructure disciplines - 3+ years
TCP/IP Knowledge
Packet Tracing & Network Debugging
Bind/DNS Management
Iptables/UFW Management
Routing & Switching Design
Hypervisor / Virtual Platform
Advanced Host level Diagnostics

What you will Need (Experience):
* Experienced working to Agile or Scrum methodologies throughout the SDLC
* Knowledge of core PHP language is essential as opposed to reliance on commercial frameworks such as CodeIgniter / Laravel.
* Disciplined to work alone while exhibiting strong teamwork
* Exemplary communication skills from technical to the user level
* Dynamic and able to prioritise workloads in a fast-moving environment
* Ability to diagnose, debug and remediate unknown issues quickly (diagnostic method)
