We want to make you one of our specialist DevOps Engineer Consultants.

What is DevOps?

Just as the title says, it brings together development and operations to collaborate together so that organisations can create stable, repeatable platforms for product deployment. DevOps is an environment, a philosophical mindset and a real-world framework that’s taken business ecosystems by a storm.

To become a DevOps specialist you need to have both technical and soft skills to seamlessly integrate with multiple teams. Engineers use tools to deploy infrastructure as code, create automation and test the platform during deployment and hook in monitoring systems for rapid up to date reporting; commitment to communication bridges it all together and breaks down team silos. By creating a DevOps culture, businesses deliver systems faster, cheaper and without sacrificing high quality by working in-line with agile methodology and pushing it to the limits to manage the entire lifecycle of software.
