Founded in 1973, our success has always been underpinned by the simple principle of providing trusted research and advice that makes a difference to our customers. Today we have over 2,000 customers ranging from the largest global energy companies and financial institutions to governments as well as smaller market specialists.

But why we do our work is what sets us apart. It stems from a commitment to making the world better, safer and stronger.

Job Description

Wood Mackenzie has an exciting opportunity for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join a fast paced, dynamic global business to help drive change and innovation. We’re looking for a skilled DevOps professional to help us take our software build, test, and release pipelines to a new level to support a transition of our services to the cloud in order to ensure rapid release cycle using Continuous Delivery techniques and technologies.

Role Purpose 

The principal responsibility of this role is to provide operational expertise within the Live Services group and to Engineering teams. This encompasses:

  • working in partnership with the business and the technology teams, bringing awareness and insight of the different operational constraints / opportunities for projects targeting cloud-based or on-premises deployment
  •  team mentoring and project coordination
  •  design, implementation and maintenance of cloud and on-prem environments
  • ownership of continuous integration/delivery toolset
  • promotion of mutual feedback in cross-functional groups, following DevOps best practices
  • a strong focus on service availability and proactive detection of problems

Main Responsibilities

Operational Responsibilities

  • Work with cross-functional teams to design and support delivery pipelines to bring projects live in cloud-based and on-premises environments
  • Provide added value to cross-functional teams by raising awareness of operational constraints and opportunities (i.e., auto-scaling, containerisation)
  • Ensure full coverage of the live environments from a monitoring, performance and availability perspective, continuously identifying areas of improvement
  • Actively participate in team research & development to bring consistency and improve ease of access and maintenance for our tooling
  • Work with a continuous improvement mindset, identifying operational processes that could be improved and drafting proposals
  • As a Senior member of the team, acts as mentor for the group, constructively challenge service design and implementations, exhibit high degree of autonomy in taking decision over competing priorities, and propose new roadmap items to innovate and improve

Stakeholder Management

  • Be a mentor and a positive presence within the team, supporting collective growth, knowledge sharing and leading junior members to express their talent and to reach business goals
  • Be able to articulate technical and business concepts to different audiences and be able to influence technical decisions with solid metrics collection and proof of concepts

Knowledge & Experience

  • The successful candidate will have a solid background in IT Operation or Software Engineering with an operational mindset (full stack)
  • Experience of designing and deploying in the cloud (Amazon Web Services)
  • A DevOps mindset; experience of agile processes (Kanban / Scrum) is important and familiarity with JIRA is very welcome
  • Ability to work proficiently in a team distributed at multiple locations and time zones

Qualifications

We understand every organization is different and professionals have their own unique history and experience, so we don’t expect to find a 100% match of candidate competencies in respect of the stack we use in Wood Mackenzie. We list our preferred technologies, but if you have transferrable knowledge (i.e., Chef instead of Ansible, or TeamCity instead of Jenkins) and you are willing to learn what you do not know, we will consider your application.

  • Automation toolset knowledge (Ansible preferred)
  • Continuous Integration and Delivery toolset (Jenkins and Nexus preferred)
  •  Solid Amazon Web Services knowledge (design and deployment in the cloud for resilience and high performance)
  • Solid system administration skills with Linux and open-source technologies
  • Relational database knowledge is desirable – experience working with various DB technologies such as Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL or PostgreSQL is valuable, as well as experience automating database tasks
  • Monitoring toolset knowledge (Prometheus preferred)
  • Git and familiarity with collaboration processes (pull/merge requests, etc.); we manage our infrastructure as code, so being comfortable with scripting languages (bash, python, go) is important
  • Experience with containerisation technologies (Docker) is very welcome
  • Experience with Kubernetes is very welcome
  • Windows Server system administration is welcome but less of a requirement
