Site Reliability Engineering Manager

Software Engineering London, United Kingdom


Software engineering is core to the success of our business and we are continually looking to expand our engineering function. Our business is to predict the future, and we build software to solve that complex problem.

We are a fast growing software organisation with large distributed systems and extensive testing requirements. We are looking for an SRE Manager to help form and manage a team of operationally-minded software developers or infrastructure specialists who can help us make our developer environments and workflows as effective as possible.

Our current infrastructure is mostly .NET on Windows but we are migrating to a heterogeneous Windows and Linux environment with an emphasis on open source and using the best tools and platform for the job. The team will focus on automation of testing and infrastructure, breaking large projects into smaller components and helping development and core infrastructure teams increase the pace of delivery.

This is an opportunity to be part of our journey to build a world-leading software engineering practice. We are working hard to embed a Continuous Improvement culture & philosophy across the organisation and are striving to learn from the best practitioners in the industry.

Who are we looking for?

Our software and infrastructure divisions are made up of highly skilled engineers from a wide range of backgrounds and experience levels. You will be an intelligent, capable and hands-on senior engineer who has significant relevant experience of SRE or related roles, along with a background in team or project leadership coupled with excellent academics.

You will demonstrate development capabilities in at least one high level language and have a proven track record of automation, as well as knowledge of Agile, Continuous Delivery and TDD principles. You will have the ability to quickly leverage off the shelf and open source systems and knowledge of the likes of distributed systems, cloud computing and systems administration, along with honed problem solving, prioritisation and decision-making skills.
