Stories of Courage, Strength, Overcoming Adversity - Positivity and Hope In The Morning - For a Breakfast Brand

July 12 2017

Devops / Sysadmin Engineer (PHP) at Compucorp (London, UK) (allows remote)

Can you help us automate our infrastructure and build our first SaaS product?

We like to build stuff… sometimes complicated stuff… for Non Profits, Charities and Art Galleries. We’re on the lookout for a confident and ambitious Devops / Sysadmin to join our fast growing startup to help us automate our development processes and build our first SaaS product.

We do things a little differently, basing all our solutions on open source products, offer a great work-life balance with flexible working hours and a real team mentality.

Our work covers web design, app development and branding for Charities and non-profit organisations across the country. Our clients include Charities such as Wikimedia and Farm Africa, art galleries such as the Photographers Gallery and Craft Central but also companies, trade associations and government bodies. We mainly work on the Drupal platform, but someone with a wide range of interests would be favourable.

We are looking for someone to join the team with the vision to help us automate our infrastructure so that everything runs like clockwork. That will involve:

- Automating tasks such as security and deployment releases, site updates and server maintenance using tools such as Jenkins, Chef, Puppet, Ansible etc

- Be the key architect in helping us to develop a robust SaaS platform for a really significant Drupal project for the not for profit sector that we are currently working on.

- Integrating with Hipchat and developing an inhouse Hubot (or similar).

- Develop command line tools to simplify developer tasks such as cloning client sites to local environments.

- There will also be the opportunity to get involved with data migration, data integration, database tuning and management and the ideal candidate would have existing MySQL (or similar) experience. 

If you live and breath Linux and love reconfiguring Web servers for the LEMP/LAMP stack until they are as secure as a rock but would also enjoy the challenge of developing a new SaaS platform on AWS then we would love to hear from you.

EU data protection requirements and locations for remote working:

Although this is a remote position, due to EU data protection requirements, only persons from countries that the EU considers to have adequate level of data protection may apply. The list can be found here:


Before applying please confirm that your location is on the list.
