We are looking for someone who is passionate about Infrastructure as Code, enjoys sharing knowledge and working closely with development teams, and values testing and reproducibility, as well as figuring out how to document and write playbooks.



  • We have several projects running in AWS in over ~20 accounts.
  • We utilise AWS best practices to control access and access accounts through a central IAM account.
  • Our whole AWS estate is configured in terraform, in multiple repos, and we use Concourse CI to push our changes out through various CD pipelines to our accounts.
  • Each project has a set of accounts, and utilises similar patterns in AWS through core terraform modules we have created, where applicable.
  •  Each project has its own CD setup to build and deploy infrastructure & software.
  • Currently we are predominately using AWS Lambda, RDS and ECS to deploy applications, and infrastructure tooling due to its simplicity. In future we are considering kubernetes when scale & complexity merits it.
