The role holder:

There is a wide variety of work, constantly evolving with new technology. The individual will have the opportunity to make a real difference, as we work directly with the operational end users who work with partner agencies and also provide these important capabilities to another National LEA.

The DevOps engineer is often the first port of call to diagnose and resolve problems, they need to be able to understand the causes of issues across a number of domains including infrastructure, code, networking and databases with enough knowledge to be able to fault find and identify the root cause.
