Website Think Digital Group
We create digital solutions to improve research, communication and education for the global asset management industry.
About the role
Due to continued global growth and expansion into new markets we are expanding our team.
We are looking to consolidate and simplify our infrastructure and development workflow which is currently spread between managed service providers such as Rackspace and Pantheon. You will be responsible for helping to architect robust and scalable infrastructure solutions based on the AWS cloud to help support our growing business. By moving to a continuous deployment model we hope to ship better code, faster and allow us to focus more on delivering great products to our customers without having to worry about our deployment and development workflows so much.
Working under the Head of Technology you will be helping to transform our current infrastructure and reduce infrastructure costs, bringing our product set onto a unified platform that will allow easier management and scaling.
We follow agile principles and all opinions matter equally, from our junior developers right up to our Head of Technology. This is a real opportunity for an ambitious engineer to help shape the future of a successful and growing product in an established team.
