Senior DevOps Engineer Consultants - Glasgow / Remote UK

FPSG are currently shortlisting for Senior DevOps Engineers to work from the Central Belt of Scotland with one of our major Consultancy Clients.


Largely based with Scottish based end Clients, you will be required to pass SC Clearance should you not already have SC Clearance.

The criteria for getting SC Clearance includes you having been based in the UK for the past 5 years as a minimum, so unfortunately any Senior DevOps Engineers who do not meet that criteria will not be able to progress.


Beyond Scotland, as with any Consultancy, you can expect to spend some time away from home depending on Client needs.

That said, the vast majority of work will be based in Central Scotland, which is of mutual benefit on both cost efficiencies and practical logistics.


Skills wise, we are looking for the Senior DevOps Engineers who are progressed to interview to bring a whole range of skills from the below list of important ones you can expect to work with across both Public Sector and Private Sector Clients:


Linux (RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Firewall / Networking configuration).


You will have confidence in detailing your experience in Configuration Management Tooling (Puppet, Ansible, Chef), Virtual Machine Automation Tooling (Vagrant, Packer) and programming in dynamic languages (Python, Ruby or similar).



We are keen to see your experience in working with Containerisation and Container Orchestration systems (Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift), Cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud Compute, Azure) and Continuous Integration and Build Tools (Jenkins, Maven, Gradle).


As this is a Consultancy role, your strong communication skills will be required as you will be engaging with internal and external stakeholders.


In terms of reward, the salary offered after a simple, smooth and conveniently arranged interview schedule will reflect your experience and that of the work you will undertake.

An excellent benefits package is on offer, with the total package amongst the most attractive in the Scottish market, whilst also offering fantastic exposure to some of the top Public Sector and Private Sector organisations in Scotland and indeed the wider UK.


Next steps:


Please submit your most recent CV by way of application for the role and relevant candidates can expect a call very promptly afterwards to discuss the Client and their Senior DevOps Engineer requirements in more detail.


FPSG is committed to equal opportunities regardless of gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief and age.
