Java DevOps Engineer

Job Title
Java DevOps Engineer
To €60k DoE


The company:

Renowned for career growth and professional/technical development, each year their award-winning software processes billions of shopping requests resulting in billions of dollars in revenue for our customers all over the world.

The opportunity:

Break up their platform into little pieces that can be deployed individually.

These guys have just started their DevOps journey so there is so much room for ideas, and within a company renowned within their industry for being innovative!

This a company where you build a career, and no better time. They have a general DevOps direction, but it's not detailed which leaves room for innovation!

Their tech stack:

  • Linux & Java
  • Groovy, Ruby, Python
  • JBOSS, Tomcat
  • SALT
  • MongoDB, Oracle
  • Eclipse
  • Jenkins & custom made stuff to deploy
  • Jira, Confluence, Fisheye
  • Memcache


The role:

Their main product is a J2EE Ecommerce platform and your task is to break it down into parts that will allow for deployment of components not the whole platform. Deployment has been reduced from 2 days to a couple of hours but this next step will mean code will be built and deployed in minutes.

This position sits on the infrastructure team of 4 working on the development environment and will have responsibility for all the environments pre production. They started their DevOps journey early this year and they have since implemented SALT successfully. The 2 main focuses are Continuous Integration and automation of the dev environment.

You will support all the dev teams worldwide. This is a true DevOps role whereby you will be developing in Java to create an automated environment for development. An example of this type of development is creating web applications for scheduling tasks for development.

You will be expected to suggest new technologies and have the ability to see the bigger picture. Working so closely with many teams you must have excellent communication skills, in order to build the rapport necessary to deliver a development environment that suits everyone, and is inline with what is expected in production.

This would suit a DevOps / Automation engineer who has worked within a Java environment; or a Java Developer who has worked in a DevOps / Automated environment, coming from a startup or a well established company.

Either way you must have a passion for ‘DevOps' and a belief that everything should be automated!

What you need:

You must have some Java development knowledge and also system administration/ engineering experience. This can be weighted either way.

  • Experience as a Java Developer
  • Strong experience working in a Linux Environment (4-5 Years)
  • Scripting Experience (Bash, shell, perl)
  • Have experience in one of the following areas; DevOps / System Automation / Systems Engineer
  • Experience with Configuration Management, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Integration- Ideally with SALT but others are fine.


Nice to Have:

Experience with one or more of the following languages (Python or Ruby or Groovy)
