Typical activities include environment curation, GitOps, SRE and assisting 2nd and 3rd line application support teams in respect of live services.

The successful applicant will split their time between being hands on with code, influencing the client’s product owner, architecture, and delivery teams in respect of the product backlog, and administrating the team’s technical delivery (Kanban).
