What’s in it for you?

Currently responsible for 60 + different items of technology, there is a huge variety in a role as Cloud Infrastructure Engineer at Octopus. We’re constantly critiquing our current tech and looking to enhance and upgrade where appropriate. Every day is different and there are many projects in flight across other parts of the business which require our input and support.

As a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer, your focus would be getting to grips with our current tech, supporting a wide range of teams and stakeholders. Over time you may grow into a Senior Engineer, with an increasing project workload. There are lots of options in an experienced team that will support your career journey and aspirations!

The team:

Part of a wider, agile Technology function, the infrastructure team is a fun and passionate group of 4 highly dedicated, skilled engineers. This is an experienced team that invests in cross-training and learning together. The goal is to continuously maintain & improve Octopus’ IT solutions, systems and infrastructure (both cloud and on-premises).

NOTE:  We want to be clear that this is not a DevOps Engineer opportunity – that is a separate team at Octopus
