Who are Tide:

At Tide, we’re on a mission to save businesses time and money. We’re the leading provider of UK SME business accounts and one of the fastest-growing FinTechs in the UK. Using the latest tech, we design solutions with SMEs in mind and our member-driven financial platform is  transforming the business banking market. Not only do we offer our members business accounts and related banking services, but also a comprehensive set of highly connected admin tools for businesses. 

Tide is about doing what you love. We’re looking for someone to join us on our exciting scale up journey and be a part of something special. We are wanting passionate Tideans to drive innovation and help build a best-in-class platform to support our members. You will be comfortable in ambiguous situations and will be able to navigate the evolving FinTech environment. Imagine shaping how millions of Tide members discover and engage with business banking platforms and building this on a global scale. 

What we’re looking for:

As a senior member of the Cloud Engineering team, you’ll be working to provide tools, guardrails and advice to Tide’s engineers, enabling them to provision the cloud infrastructure they need to build out Tide’s extensive feature roadmap. You’ll also be tasked with ensuring the availability and security of our AWS-hosted, containerised microservices platform, and working to ensure that we’re ready to scale in line with our big international ambitions.

You’ll work closely with colleagues in Tide’s InfoSec function, as well as with engineering teams working in Java, Python, Swift and NodeJS and more. You’ll help us to roll out infrastructure across new territories around the world, ensuring standardised environments wherever Tide operates and enabling rapid rollout into new countries.

You’ll help us to scale our engineering function by providing standardised deployment pipelines, superior tooling and pursuing a desire to automate everything. Our aim for 2021 is to ensure that no engineer needs to wait for us to do their job – we’re aggressively pursuing a self-service model, working on tooling, and chasing down a backlog of tasks that machines are better at than humans. 

As a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer you’ll be:

  • Building a rapid deployment pipeline to roll out new infrastructure environments in minutes
  • Helping to remove Tide’s legacy infrastructure and standardise on modern, managed infrastructure
  • Finding creative ways to remove awkward manual maintenance tasks
  • Ensuring automatic compliance with Tide’s security standards and maintaining the security of our network perimeter
  • Providing stable, secure, scalable core platform services like databases, Kafka, hardware security modules and container orchestration

What makes you a great fit:

  • Having 7+ years of experience in Cloud Infrastructure
  • You have wide-ranging experience with AWS
  • You’re great with Terraform for infrastructure auto-scaling 
  • You have strong understanding of Docker
  • You have strong Python/Boto3 coding skills in automating manual jobs
  • You have experience with a container orchestration tool like Kubernetes, ECS or Swarm
  • You have a desire to build pipelines for everything
  • You have a can-do attitude with an ability to own problems and see things through
  • You have an appreciation of software engineering principles

What you’ll get in return:

Make work, work for you! We are embracing new ways of working and support flexible working arrangements.
