Graduate DevOps Engineer London 2024

Acre is rebuilding the UK’s £1.4 trillion mortgage market from the ground up, with a completely new, end-to-end management system for mortgages.

‍Our platform cuts out the unnecessary admin, pain and friction from buying a home. We're covering the entire journey, from figuring out what you can borrow, to getting your keys. We're guided both by the voice of real home buyers and by our close relationships with brokers, lenders and insurers.

‍Following a hugely successful 2023, where we proudly facilitated over £10 billion in mortgages for over 100,000 homebuyers, we are continuing to onboard some huge names in the mortgage industry and are looking to expand our team.

‍The role

We are looking for a Graduate DevOps Engineer that wants to help ensure our platform for homebuying is always available and secure. Your role will be to work closely with the broader team to help ensure our CI pipelines are smooth, efficient, and ensure quality; our production environment is performant, stable and secure; and we have an exceptional degree of insight and transparency into our operational environment.

‍Your approach to the role should be that no task is done twice.

‍What you’ll be doing

As a key member of the engineering team you will be responsible for the implementation and testing of non-functional aspects of our platform such as security, performance and scaling that delivers our product to users, keeps it secure and helps us understand its performance in the real world.

‍You will be involved in our full software development life cycle; you will be expected to quickly switch between tasks and work with the frontend and backend engineering teams to ensure they are able to efficiently deliver software while meeting our software quality and security benchmarks.

  • Curious about new and evolving technologies. Enjoys tinkering with systems and networks.
  • Have an awareness of technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform & Ansible.
  • Have an awareness of information security principles, particular with respect to environment hardening.
  • Have an understanding of implementing monitoring and logging for security, operational and application performance management.
  • Have an understanding of CI.
  • Preferably have knowledge of at least one programming/scripting language.

What we offer

  • Chance to make an impact within a fully funded, early-stage Fintech start-up in a unique position to make a difference to the mortgage market.
  • Competitive salary.
  • Opportunity to earn grants from our EMI option scheme.
  • One week of free accommodation for those relocating.
  • Matched pension contribution up to 4%.

We’re looking for people that will get stuck in and make a difference. We have a great collaborative, entrepreneurial team that are passionate about what they do. If you want to join a team that is tackling a big problem space, then we’d love to hear from you.

‍We’re eager to receive applications from all backgrounds, including from people of colour, the LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, neurodivergent people, parents, carers, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
