We now need a Senior Development Operations Engineer to join a newly created team and support the development pipeline. It’s an exciting and innovative opportunity to be involved in a transformational team that will be changing the way we deliver technical solutions to operational policing. Interested? Join us.

As a Senior Development Operations Engineer, you’ll play a leading role in the development and operations of the DevOps pipeline. At this level, we’ll expect you to test and deploy product updates, implement integrations, improve automation and monitoring, and be the technical product owner for some parts of the pipeline. To make sure software development follows the intended processes, you’ll also spend time working with developers and engineers.

As a Senior DevOps Engineer, you’ll deliver and integrate software to form a complete DevOps toolchain. You’ll be responsible for planning and designing large groups of stories. Meanwhile, the wider DevOps team will support the development and operation of software, underpinning good development processes including managing tools and testing environments, maintaining central code control, upholding development standards and writing software that automates systems.
