  • Building effective relationships with third party suppliers and employees.
  • Transforming technical requirements into DevOps processes.
  • Building complex stories without additional support.
  • Identifying and resolving issues preventing delivery.


You’ll have:

  • A strong DevOps background and demonstratable experience in previous similar roles.
  • Knowledge and experience of AWS and CloudFront.
  • Extensive experience of Agile software development and working in SCRUM teams.
  • Strong stakeholder management skills.
