Site Reliability Engineer

Scroll to content

We’re looking for a self-driven Site Reliability Engineer to join our team. 

At PassFort, we share a powerful vision to enable businesses & individuals to establish trust online. We’re connecting the human concept of trust with the transformative technology of the internet.

We do this by giving regulated businesses the tools they need to automate and digitise the onboarding, verification and management of their customers - that means customers can be onboarded in real-time, without ever having met in person. Our clients save time and money, reduce complexity and improve customer satisfaction.

What you’ll be doing

Working within our new Site Reliability team, you will empower our engineering and data teams to do their best work and help us build PassFort’s platforms to scale to a global customer base.

Working closely with our core engineering teams, you will:

  • Implement best practices for our cloud-based systems including logging, monitoring, deployment & data management
  • Help to support production systems to maintain reliability and uptime
  • Empower the engineering and data teams to deliver high-quality code quickly
  • Support the growth team to help them understand the viability of potential customer solutions

This is a fantastic opportunity to drive the direction of a growing platform in a hybrid role where you will be doing site reliability, systems engineering and DevOps, which gives you a chance to grow in various directions as we continue to scale as a business. We are going to expand into globally distributed systems across various data providers, jurisdictions and global data centers. The potential for the role is leading the way we will design our systems to cope with this whilst maintaining a very high requirement towards performance and uptime.

What we’re looking for

  • A self-starter, able to work autonomously
  • Great communication skills
  • Experience with distributed systems (great if at a large scale)
  • Experience implementing best practices around monitoring, alerting and logging
  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker
  • Experience administering a Cloud-Based Service (GCP is a plus)
  • A Computer Science degree or equivalent technical degree/relevant technical experience
  • Best practices around security is a plus

The Perks

  • Equity! We want you to succeed as we do
  • Great location near Bank station - easy transport links, great food, and the Thames is a hop, skip & jump away! (although we are currently working remotely due to Covid-19)
  • An annual learning & development budget to spend on professional or personal development, we’re invested in both
  • Birthday off - relax and put your feet up
  • Subsidised access to mental health services
  • Discounts to services and products
  • Salary sacrifice schemes via Enjoy Benefits: including Cycle to Work and Gym Membership
  • Equally Enhanced Maternity/Paternity/Shared Leave pay 
  • 25 days holiday + 8 bank holiday days you can use as and when you prefer
  • Unlimited unpaid leave
  • 1 week “work from anywhere” 
  • Generous 5% Pension contributions - investing in your future is important
  • Biscuits… we’re a bit obsessed. We have a weekly ‘guest’ biscuit to broaden your biscuit horizons.
