Platform Engineer

We have an exciting Platform Engineer opportunity within the Cloud Team at Nationwide.

We are looking for people who are happy to take ownership, enjoy solving complex problems and pioneer new ideas. We are also looking for people that are open to learn new technologies, not afraid to experiment and passionate about building scalable systems.

About you

If you have some of the below skills, we're keen to hear from you.

  • Experience in platform engineering / DevOps or software development / systems administration
  • Strong knowledge of cloud-based infrastructure (we use AWS)
  • Good knowledge of Terraform / CloudFormation or experience with other modern programming languages (Python, Golang, etc)
  • Comfortable working in an Agile environment
  • Good collaboration skills and able to work effectively with multi-disciplinary teams across the project lifecycle

It would be an advantage to have exposure to any of the technology we use, but by no means a must have. We are looking for candidates with the right aptitude to learning and keen on exploring new technology. We can create the opportunity for the right candidate to be cross trained on the role.

What you'll be doing

Day-to-day you'll be exploiting your experience of building first-class solutions in an Agile environment. You'll help drive continuous improvements and promote best practices through your actions and behaviours. With the understanding of the end-to-end process from a technical perspective, you will work closely with your peer platform engineers in your team, developers and engineers in other teams across the society helping to deliver solutions that meet their requirements.

We want you to nurture and value proactive habits and to develop contacts and relationships, so things are done faster and more efficiently. We'll expect you to get stuck in and have a go, knowing that sometimes to fail fast is to learn fast.

Technology we use:

  • AWS with Control Tower
  • Micro-account architecture with PrivateLink
  • Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) and Controller pattern
  • Managed Service for Streaming Kafka (MSK)
  • Terraform
  • CloudFormation StackSets
  • Gitlab CI
  • Monitoring and observability tools - Prometheus/Grafana, Datadog

The extras you'll get

If you put a lot in, it's only fair that you get a lot out. Our rewards and recognition scheme includes:

  • A personal pension - if you put in 7% of your salary, we'll top up by a further 16%
  • Up to 2 days of paid volunteering a year
  • Life assurance worth 8x your salary
  • A great selection of additional benefits through our salary sacrifice scheme
  • Access to an annual performance related bonus
  • Access to training to help you develop and progress your career
  • 25 days holiday

Why work at Nationwide

We're a building society founded by ordinary people, our members, who came together to help each other get the most from their money, buy homes and save for their futures. For over 130 years, we've supported each other and our communities, and we've done the right thing for wider society too.

If you come to work here at Nationwide, you'll be part of that. Part of something a bit different. And something really quite special.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnerships, pregnancy or maternity or age
