Are you looking for an organisation where you have the freedom and autonomy to positively challenge the status quo?

Do you want to work for an industry-leading organisation, playing a pivotal role in delivering digital experiences that customers love?

Yes, yes and yes?

We want to hear from you!


Our Technology team are looking for a future-thinking Technical Lead to join us on our journey into the world of AWS..

We are in an exciting phase of change; along with the rest of the world, we’re embarking on a hugely impactful digital journey, both for our people and our customers. What’s great is that this position plays a key role in ensuring that we provide an unshakeable infrastructure to support our digital experiences, in turn providing unparalleled service to our customers.

In this role, you’ll lead a team of passionate, driven Platform Engineers working on some highly visible, large-scale projects and platforms with influence over a wide range of business and technology stakeholders. You’ll be the SME in all things cloud and AWS, along with fostering a strong DevOps culture.

What we’re after:

  • Technical thought leadership across a broad range of cloud technologies, more specifically AWS
  • Proven track-record of owning end-to-end delivery of large-scale projects driving design, build and implementation of secure, resilient and scalable cloud-based infrastructure solutions
  • Experience leading the technical strategy for cloud, working closely with architecture 
  • You’ll be an exemplary leader but someone who is also excited to get your hands dirty in the technology with your team
  • Experience in building future-fit infrastructure engineering capability, ways of working practices and a true squad mentality
  • An understanding of how to grow this capability in-house, retaining IP and helping to remove key dependencies
  • An ability to naturally identify and promote continuous improvement opportunities with a view to build a growth-mindset culture across the wider organisation

Outside of this, we place emphasis on people who: -

  • Come to work every day with a big smile and be prepared to have fun and laugh in a high performing, collaborative environment
  • Can use their energy, passion and ambition to motivate not only your people but the wider technology team to strive for the very best
  • Can keep it real, both from a people and technology perspective; you’ll respect and appreciate legacy systems and processes, seeing it as an opportunity to grow, not a challenge

What’s in it for you?

  • We offer a range of flexible working options with the latest technology to support
  • You play a critical part in this digital journey from its early stages – the potential to own and impact change is endless!
  • Work in an environment where failing fast is encouraged; we love experimenting and trying new things!
