At IDBS, the Site Reliability Engineers (previously known as DevOps) focus on automation and self service by building reliable infrastructure and tools for our agile teams so that they can focus on developing functionality that helps R&D teams globally to manage their data, enhance their collaboration and drive innovation. They work closely with our agile teams to advocate sensible, scalable systems design that enables overall performance and reliability of IDBS’ infrastructure and products.
As a member of our newly formed Site Reliability Engineering team you will be responsible for managing and supporting a 99.9% uptime Linux based production environment in AWS and supporting our product development teams by building, administering and evolving a department wide infrastructure of software development tools and support systems; such as automated build and continuous integration. You will work with new technologies to build new systems to improve deployment speeds, reduce system variance, remove manual processes and reduce TCO.
This infrastructure covers the whole software development lifecycle with particular focus on the virtualisation infrastructure and build and deployment. Maintaining a department wide perspective and ensuring that we have a high quality set of tools, while avoiding duplication and unnecessary inconsistencies will be a central part of this role.
It’s an exciting time to be joining IDBS. A recent shift in development style to an agile approach and a heavy investment in new tools, technologies and teams (including our recently formed Site Reliability Engineering team!) are all part of our drive to ensure that our products are staying relevant in a fast moving and dynamic business sector.
IDBS has always had great people, and these changes have empowered their tight-knit teams to focus on supporting their customers: research and development (R&D) teams globally.
As part of our drive to look after our customers, IDBS has embarked on a journey to move our existing on-premise software suite on to a web-based micro-service architecture, driven by new, versatile web-scale products to bring powerful informatics to R&D that are simple, cost-effective and easy to use.
