Join our defence and national security business and you’ll be helping users plan and train to meet the most complex security threats in the world.

The Mission of the DevOps and Infrastructure Engineer is to provide DevOps knowledge and hands on capability throughout development and at customer sites in a solution deployment role.

You will embody our values and serve as a technical representative of the company at customer locations. You will identify and ensure the solution is deployed in the appropriate operational environment e.g. power, cooling, bandwidth.
Due to the nature of this role, you will be expected to meet requirements associated with obtaining UK security vetting clearance; including an unbroken residency in the UK for the previous 5 years. If you think that this might be an issue for you, please let us know.
