continuous delivery pipeline, vital role, finance, London, generous package

A top London financial R&D house are seeking an automation engineer (from a development, or automated QA) background to join them. This role is to join a select team of experts working specifically on their continuous delivery pipeline. Hence the role spans development and operations, and is a “big deal” for all of the development teams, as this work underpins the success and agility of the entire company.

You will have:

  • An active interest (and experience) in automation and continuous delivery
  • Several years’ commercial experience specifically addressing one or more of: highly scalable continuous integration pipelines, build systems, and/or heavily automated QA (writing code)
  • Software development skills in multiple modern programming languages, ideally including C# as your primary language
  • Deep familiarity with tools such as (or comparable to): Git / Mercurial, Jira, Bamboo / Jenkins (and/or MSBuild, TeamCity, Octopus, CMake, …)
  • A strong technical degree from a good university, backed by good A-level grades

Candidates from an automated QA background are welcome to apply, but will also need to evidence coding skills, and ideally formal software development experience.

Your opinions, ideas and ability to innovate and iterate with a like-minded team will be highly valued. Based in a great central London location convenient for mainline stations, the company can offer an excellent work environment and a generous salary and package.

Salaries are based on merit, so if you feel underpaid in your current role, but you have the qualifications, skills and attitude to bring to this role, don’t fret that you will be “short changed”.
