Container Platform Engineer - Kubernetes, Openshift, Docker

Why is our Cloud Engineering team the next step for you?

Working with a group of Platform and Cloud Engineers, this role is all about maturing and operating Worldpay’s container platform through delivery of our PaaS/ CaaS capability.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

In this role, you’ll help mature and evolve Worldpay’s strategy around container adoption. You’ll be able to effectively apply critical thinking to different modes of container orchestration and be able to balance technical decisions against pragmatic outcomes.

You’ll be supporting our 24/7 service with 5 9’s uptime on PaaS/ CaaS platform, as well as build and maintain documented production and pre-production environments in Amazon Cloud (AWS). You’ll collaborate on design and configuration, ensuring a balance of stability, security and flexibility. We’ll want you to build and maintain an automated deployment platform to support continuous delivery processes, as well as own and maintain the process for the deployment of code for stable, scalable and secure releases. You’ll also build and maintain monitoring for the production environments, ensuring alerting mechanisms are deployed and appropriately assigned to the support model (currently Sysdig, Splunk, Cloudwatch). 

What will make you the ideal candidate?

To succeed in this role you'll demonstrate strong knowledge in the container/ PaaS space and experience in 24/7 operations, plus you'll have managed (or better, automated) production deployments and really understand what it means to "ship". That said, technology is a means and not an end for you; the people and systems you affect and interact with matter the most. You care about the tools used to get the job done, but they don’t define you. You love to solve new problems and thrive in a rapidly innovating and changing space.


You’ll have experience working with container orchestration technologies (eg: Openshift, Kubernetes, etc.), experience with containers and immutable infrastructure (eg: Docker, Project Atomic) and experience working in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and managing the infrastructure for cloud operations. Automated deployment experience (including Jenkins, Sonar, Nexus, Maven, Puppet, Ansible) is great, as well as automated monitoring and alerting experience (including App Dynamics, Splunk, AWS Cloudwatch, Nagios and Oracle EM). You’ll also have experience working in an Agile and DevOps environment.
