Job description

DWP. Digital with Purpose.

We’re looking for talented Engineers with experience in DevOps and Cloud Infrastructure to join our DWP Digital team.

We build next gen Cloud native infrastructure using technologies such as Terraform, Docker and Kubernetes with Istio. We implement services built on infrastructure in both AWS and Azure and work on immutable, containerised microservices solutions.

We’re growing an incredible engineering community who are transforming government services through tech, creating modern services that work for the people that need them. We work in a highly agile, team-oriented digital environment. We’re test-driven, innovative and iterative in our approach.

And we’re the UK’s largest government department; millions of people access our services and support every day. So we do all this at a scale, and with a purpose, unlike anywhere else.

What skills, knowledge and experience are we looking for?

DevOps within Projects. What will you work on?

You’ll work on projects that are critical to people all through their lives, from childhood to retirement and bereavement.

Our Engineers in Newcastle work on services that deal with over 100 million data records, that pay £billions to millions of people, that ensure children and carers are financially supported, and that help people of all circumstances to live independently.

You’ll craft and implement solutions that are resilient, scalable, extensible, and maintainable within Cloud environments. You will be responsible for CI/CD pipelines and DevOps toolchains. You’ll deliver re-usability, consistency, security and quality across new and existing platforms and ensure they mature in ways that are feature-rich, robust, evergreen and automated.

We’re developing our capability all the time. We want our people to be at their best, with access to the right tech, training, and tooling. As an experienced engineer and senior part of our DevOps community you’ll help us grow by sharing your knowledge and experience with our teams, and promoting DevOps culture and practice across DWP.

Details. Wages. Perks.
