Junior/Graduate DevOps Engineer 2021
Would you like to be one of the most sought after experts in the tech industry?
What is DevOps?
DevOps is an environment, a philosophical mindset and a real-world framework that's taken business ecosystems by a storm. That doesn't mean much though, does it, let's see if we can describe it better...Just as the title says, it brings together development and operations so that organisations can create stable, repeatable platforms for product deployment.
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.
Don't worry, you're not expected to know how to do all of this already, that's where we come in. We can take your already outstanding skillsets and train you much further to the level of a specialist consultant.
We want to help you grow into someone that can use niche skillsets from Continuous Delivery to Cloud Platforms and everything in between. By training in one of our world class academies we will make you a specialist consultant who will then work with our clients to help them realise their business needs.
