We are notonthehighstreet. Home to over 5000 of the UK’s best small creative businesses, we have been changing the online retail landscape since 2006. Whether you’re working with our Partners to help grow their business, or behind the scenes developing code, we are continuously innovating & working on some really cool stuff all at the same time. And the best bit? We’re making a difference to our Partners’ lives as we do it.

We’re about to embark on an ambitious new phase of development to advance our technology, including platform re-architecture to serverless microservices, rewriting the front-end and introducing new big data & machine learning platforms. It’s an exciting time and we need to strengthen and grow our teams!

As our Platform Engineer, you will join our platform engineering team assisting and building and evolving our new infrastructure, leveraging AWS cloud services to operate our platform composed of frontend & backend micro services for our customers, partners, and business users.

Some of the things you'll be doing

  • Work with a small, empowered cross-functional team to deliver business value
  • Pair with development engineers to share your expertise, assist with infrastructure changes and promote existing integrations/patterns or help develop new ones
  • Participate in the design and implementation of our new infrastructure

Some key skills + experience you’ll need

  • Experience working in a Platform/DevOps/Cloud Engineer capacity
  • Experience using/writing code in a high-level programming language (ideally Python)
  • Experience using AWS cloud services (especially Cloudformation, EC2, ECS, System Manager, RDS, SNS/SQS, Lambdas)
  • Strong knowledge of Linux systems and shell scripting
  • A desire to work closely with the business and learn new technologies
  • Ability to investigate and troubleshoot any issues and suggest solutions
  • Experience with agile development methodologies
  • Interest in modern development practices and tools, e.g. Continuous Delivery with Jenkins, Source Control with Git, Infrastructure as code, Immutable Infrastructures
  • A desire to learn and seek to make a difference

What we can offer you

Because we know how important learning is, we provide the Tech team with online training and time set aside to complete course work, guilds sessions, hackathons and learning groups. On top of this, we offer plenty of fun stuff - staff discount, birthday vouchers, soft/hot drinks on tap, regular Friday drinks and of course our renowned Christmas and Summer parties. As the home of thoughtful gifts, ‘thoughtful’ is our middle name so we also love a surprise or two… (but that’s enough on that for now!)

Our perks

It’s important to us that our people are well looked after, which is why we offer everyone BUPA healthcare, life insurance and a pension plan. Because having a break is important for your physical and mental wellbeing, our holiday allowance is 25 days (plus bank holidays) AND your entitlement will increase an extra day for every 2 years you spend with us.
