System Engineer

I’m interested

Gibraltar – Waterport Place

Contract type

Full-time

Job description

Engineering without boundaries.
 
Here at William Hill we want our Systems Engineers to be able to take control, so we work to the principle, “if you can do it, crack on and do it.” If you love the flash of a command line prompt and take great pride in connecting all the jigsaw pieces of an IT service, we think you’ll fit in well here. We're currently migrating our infrastructure to AWS and want you to join us on this journey.  Our expansion into the USA is challenging us to build new infrastructure and design new ways of storing data.
 
About us

With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.
 
Your role in the team
 
All this variety means that no two days are the same. You’ll help us deliver new projects through IT strategic change. This includes making sure our infrastructure and applications are running smoothly and any errors are fixed. Working closely with support teams and hardware suppliers you’ll deliver high quality environments. You’ll have an opportunity to enhance your technical skills across a wide range of areas and work with new technology.
 
Skills needed

We’re looking for the type of Engineer who’s enthusiastic about automating everything. You can quickly diagnose and resolve connectivity problems, you can spot why a server is behaving badly in a heartbeat, and you can collaborate with developers to resolve code vs infrastructure conflicts. We need you to be a Linux expert, ideally with strong knowledge of Redhat, Git, and containerisation technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.  Some knowledge of Terraform and Puppet, and a strong knowledge of Networking  (DNS, Load Balancing, Firewalls and routing) and HTTP protocols would be beneficial too.
If you haven’t used these in the workplace but take an active interest in your own time, link us to your GitHub and show us what you’re made of. We’re interested in your potential.
We work in a Devops culture and are adopting Agile methodologies too. It would be great if you’re familiar with these ways of working and can share your expertise.
 
What we offer
 
We offer a friendly, flexible working environment and encourage career development. As we’re a global business, you’ll have colleagues in our overseas offices and may have the chance to travel occasionally.  There’s a lot going on #behindthebet – come and see for yourself.
