Tessian: Platform Engineer at Tessian (London, UK) (London, UK)

Posted: Nov 8, 2019

The Platform Team at Tessian

We're looking for experienced DevOps engineers to join us on our predominantly cloud centric infrastructure. You should be experienced with (and excited by!) ideas like infrastructure as code and "cattle not pets", and be prepared to design, develop and support the various offerings of our system. Because of the sensitive nature of our work flexibility is a must. We deploy to AWS today, but may want to extend to other cloud offerings in the future.

We are extensively using Docker to manage our application code, so this role gives a chance to build on modern software deployment techniques, and we use a range of cloud services to orchestrate, secure and manage our application stack. You'll be investigating and proposing microservices architectures and coming up with new ways to deploy and scale Tessian's platform.

You’ll be growing your skill-set on an ongoing basis; regular and continuous development is something we believe in and as an employee we will seek to create opportunities for you to evolve. Our agnostic approach to problem solving means we favour hiring engineers who pride themselves on the ability to learn new skills, their comfort with the unknown and their willingness to experiment.
This role may involve, at times, client side visits.

Some of the technologies we’re working with include Node.jsC#PythonPostgresMongoDBSpark, and our current cloud stack revolves around AWS, Docker (on ECS), Ansible and Terraform.



We'd love to meet someone who




    • Is a great problem solver who takes pride in their work

    • Enjoys building scalable and resilient systems

    • Has strong experience managing a range of production applications in a distributed and highly available cloud services environment (AWS preferable)

    • Has experience with containerization (Docker) and high level container orchestration systems (e.g. ECS/Kubernetes/Swarm)

    • Has experience with automation and configuration management tools (e.g. Ansible, Terraform, and Puppet)

    • Has a deep understanding of Linux operating system and administration skills, and shell-scripting skills

    • Has a deep understanding of server/network security concepts and implementations

    • Has created and worked with microservice infrastructures

    • Ideally has some programming knowledge, preferably Python, Node.js, Javascript, or Go

    • Ideally has some experience deploying solutions to enterprise clients







Why we think you'll love it here





      • It’s important to us that all Tessians are part of the journey we’re on, so we offer equity options with every role and benchmark to provide above market rate salaries - there’s plenty more too….
