Your Team

As a Senior DevOps Engineer at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean, a mighty challenger of the banking world) you’ll join an ambitious team of highly motivated, talented Tideans who love to collaborate, and are driven by helping people achieve their business ambitions. We live and breathe our values, which are to put our members first, work as one team and be data driven, as part of our team, they’ll matter to you too.

As part of this team, you would be working on improving the resilience and scalability of our production systems as we grow beyond 100,000 members, as well as helping to provide a seamless code delivery pipeline, enabling our development teams to ship quality code every day.

About the Tech

Technology and our people is what makes Tide possible. We work in autonomous, cross-functional teams where backend, iOS, Android, web, QA, architects, DevOps, agile coaches, data experts and product owners solve difficult problems together to get the job done. We self-organise and discuss technical challenges and set our own guidelines in the different Community of Practices.

In DevOps we make extensive use of AWS to run our development and production environments. We’re looking to migrate to Kubernetes in the near future, and are busy tidying up our legacy infrastructure to get us there. We make use Terraform, Ansible and Docker every day, as we build resilient self-service platforms for our development teams.

In the wider tech community at Tide our backend teams use Java 11+ microservices to provide RESTful APIs to Android, iOS and Angular-based web front ends.

About You

Let’s not beat around the bush. We’re an international scale up, we’re busy! If fast paced environments, cross team exposure, inquisitive freedom and the ability to have a real impact on a rapidly growing scale up appeals to you, then you already have the mind of a Tidean. If you have that along with the following experience, we’d love to hear from you.

The non-negotiables:

  • Wide-ranging experience with AWS
  • Strong understanding of Docker
  • Great with Terraform or Ansible, or ideally both

The highly desirables:

  • Experience with a container orchestration tool like Kubernetes, ECS or Swarm
  • Experience coding or operating Spring Boot Java applications
  • Experience growing a DevOps function within an expanding business
  • Hands-on knowledge of a container monitoring system

About Tide

With over 100,000 members, we’re the leading provider of SME business accounts in the UK. Why? Because we’re solving a real world problem by being passionate about helping our Members.

SME’s have been underserved and overlooked by traditional banks for years. In an entrepreneurial age where everyone is expected to take a shot, traditional banks have not evolved with the needs of the market. That’s where Tide comes in.

With quick on-boarding, low fees and innovative features, we thrive on making data driven decisions to help SMEs save both time and money.

Here’s what we think about diversity and inclusion…

Diversity is what makes our world interesting. Fact. We don’t build our product for one type of person, Tide is here for everyone. And that’s how we build our teams. We’re a melting pot of different cultures, races, religions, girls who like girls, boys who like boys and those who like both. We’re proud of the fact that we represent society and it will always be our mission to do so. Everyone here is given a voice, and if you like the sound of that, we’d encourage you to come and find your voice here, too.
