Lead Engineer – ZeroOps


Elastic teams delivering digital outcomes.

About this role 

As the Lead Engineer – ZeroOps, you will be joining the Platforms team within Enterprise Digital and be responsible for our ZeroOps squad, whose goal is to make life for the development teams in other parts of the business easier by providing a set of low-friction, fully managed cloud capabilities and abstracting these complexities away from the developer – allowing them to focus on code and not infrastructure.

The ZeroOps team is mainly responsible for overseeing the infrastructure. They heavily rely on Dynatrace, their go-to tool within the observability stack, to ensure Enterprise Apps are observable and monitorable in production.

Your Responsibilities

In the role of Lead Engineer – ZeroOps, you will have the following responsibilities:

  • Be a consultant for multiple teams; your deep hands-on experience with multiple build and deployment approaches, patterns, and architectures means you can advise both external teams and your team on the best way to implement a solution
  • Remove manual implementation from workflows and look to automate as much as possible
  • Provide mentorship and career support for the members of your teams – maximising their potential
  • Agile champion for your teams, taking pride in a metrics-based organisation that looks to improve itself continually

About You

We’re looking for passionate technologists who enjoy working in collaborative, agile teams. You’ll need to be a clear, concise & engaging communicator with people on your team. We enjoy the big picture and the details; we want people who excel at both.

  • Extensive experience with Dynatrace in a commercial environment, building, maintaining and delivering to production
  • Experience building CI/CD pipelines using GitLab
  • Experience in building software products in Typescript
  • Experience with agile systems development methodologies
  • Experience with cloud computing on AWS
    • Desirable to have an AWS certification
  • Passion for automation with a reluctance for manual implementation

Who are we?

We’re a software development company building the world’s Elastic Workforce, reinventing work and challenging the assumption that a local team = the best team.

We help businesses deliver technical projects better than ever before through our platform and on-demand Elastic Teams™.

What’s in it for you? Our mission is to create freelance jobs with more benefits than permanent ones.
