BAE Systems Digital Intelligence helps nations, governments and businesses around the world defend themselves against cybercrime, reduce their risk in the connected world, comply with regulation, and transform their operations.
We do this using our unique set of solutions, systems, experience and processes - often collecting and analysing huge volumes of data. These, combined with our Cyber Special forces - some of the most skilled people in the world - enable us to defend against cyber-attacks, fraud and financial crime, enable intelligence-led policing and solve complex data problems.
We are obsessed about solving problems for our customers; we bring together great minds that face tough challenges on a daily basis, and are encouraged to make a difference.
Activities can vary from creating a new development network, to architecting and implementing a new build, test and release pipeline. Automation is at the heart of everything we do, whenever there is a task that needs to be performed more than once, it gets automated as a priority.
The core technology stack that the team works with is: RHEL based Linux, Docker, Jenkins, Git, Azure Cloud (via Terraform & Kubernetes), Atlassian Suite, Nexus, Yum, Python, Bash, Virtual and Physical systems.
The aim of the team is to provide a centralised point within the business for all DevOps skills and allow projects to benefit from a knowledge pool instead of silos of information distributed across the business. The team particularly focuses on the ‘build’ end of the pipeline by providing Continuous Integration expertise, guidance and implementation to allow projects to be delivered smoothly and to a high standard.
Typical day-to-day activities include:
• Secondment to projects for DevOps assistance including:
- Interactions can vary between a few meetings to assignment for several months
- Designing & implementing build pipelines
- Configuration of Continuous Integration systems (Jenkins)
- Developing deployment strategies for projects/products • Support/Maintenance of build & development platforms (Azure Cloud & VCenter)
• Working on centralised tools that can be used across the business
• Evaluation of new platforms & technologies – Cloud platforms, Orchestration, Monitoring
