Job Description

Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

Come and be part of an innovative and influential University department delivering excellent IT and business services to a leading Russell Group institution. With a reputation for engaging staff and students in partnership to deliver services, for three years running UK students have voted us best for IT support. We are committed to delivering and supporting excellent customer focussed services and to do this we need to recruit the best staff, invested in higher education and dedicated to supporting sector leading learning, teaching and research – and that’s why we need you…

We have an exciting opportunity in our department for a hardworking engineer to use their skills as part of a team to improve the hosting and deployment of key University services including our corporate website, intranet and a range of bespoke and off the shelf systems we develop and run.

You will have the opportunity to enhance the deployment, management and monitoring across the wide-range of systems we run.

We use a variety of technologies to host systems, automate deployment and monitor them to improve the performance, reliability and ease of maintenance of our services. Some of the tools we use at the moment include Git, Puppet and Jenkins, but we’re always looking to change so that we can do things better.

We need someone who understands software development processes, and has a passion for automating the setup of services, can work closely with system developers to help them run services in the best way possible. The position has plenty of opportunities to learn about new technologies as they emerge and to put the most useful into practice.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to the greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
