Job Description

Head of DevOps - DevOps, AWS, CI/CD, Docker, Kubernetes

I am currently looking for a Head of DevOps for my client in Manchester.

This is an initial 6 month contract position based in central Manchester with occasional travel to various sites across the UK. This role is paying £650 - £750 per day.

The successful candidate will come from a very strong hands on DevOps background and have recent experience in a high level primarily hands off role managing multiple technical and non-technical staff. This role will require management of circa 100 people. 

The role is more 'pastoral care' focused than it is hands on, but you will have responsibility for multiple applications across various work streams and be able to advise technology strategy and have overall responsibility for all DevOps projects. 

Ideally you will have very strong agile experience, and the ability to advise best practise in this area on a large scale. Experience with highly scalable AWS Cloud platforms is essential. You will also be very experienced with Docker and Kubernetes in production, and be able to improve the current CI/CD pipelines.

If this sounds like the role for you, please apply within or email
