Senior DevOps Engineer

Guildford, Surrey
Competitive Salary

What we're looking for

Formulate is looking to hire a DevOps engineer to join our growing team. You will be working alongside a small team of highly skilled front and back-end developers to build internal and client projects. We work with high profile clients in the FinTech industry among others, and this is a great opportunity to work on systems, websites and applications across a range of industries and technologies.

We are looking for someone with a love for building systems from start to finish. Your love for writing code should only be matched by your love for the infrastructure supporting it. Chef, Ansible or similar should be your weapon of choice. Being able to help out wherever needed is a huge plus since we’re a small team sharing responsibilities. You should have strong opinions on security, but with a commercial understanding too.

Formulate consists of a close knit team working from a farm based office in Surrey. We work in a friendly and creative manner, and when it comes to projects we all like to be very hands on. In our experience, having teams of account managers and salespeople tend to cause more problems than they solve, so we prefer to keep the team lean and highly skilled.


  • 25+ days holiday
  • Early start/finish to avoid rush hour
  • Regular company social events
  • Pension contributions
  • Small, friendly team
  • Peaceful, rural setting

Required skills:

  • Thorough understanding and extensive experience administering Linux web applications. Ubuntu is our preferred flavour
  • At least one of Chef, Ansible or Puppet. We use Chef so any experience of that will be preferable.
  • Experience building scalable, microservice oriented architecture
  • Experience with AWS (OpsWorks is a huge plus)
  • Experience hosting Ruby and PHP applications
  • Understanding of networking, architecture and core technologies such as load balancing and DNS
  • Development experience with Ruby and/or PHP
  • Experience with monitoring, log management and general infrastructure awareness and reliability

Other skills (non-essential):

  • Experience with docker in production
  • Experience with load and penetration testing
  • Some contribution to Open Source would be nice to see
  • Experience with ElasticSearch, MongoDB, NodeJS or any other related tech

If you would like to apply for this role, please email your CV to recruitment@formulatedigital.co.uk.
