Location Target: Belfast, Northern Ireland

From award-winning creative and employer branding to our innovative cloud-based suite of technology solutions, Symphony Talent is a global leader in transforming employer brand experiences through talent marketing software and services. Its talent marketing platform, SmashFlyX ( unifies CRM, career site, talent mobility and programmatic advertising to help talent acquisition leaders automate tasks for efficiency and empower teams for interaction.

With primary offices in New York, London, Bangalore, and Belfast and supporting more than 600 household name customers across the globe, we are seeking a highly motivated Senior DevOps Engineer to join our team to help manage our suite of cloud based recruiting tools and career website hosting platforms.

The services we deliver are diverse, complex, and interesting. Delivery of these services requires a cloud-first mentality with skills in internet-facing web application management, security, performance management, infrastructure automation, and incorporation of leading edge technologies. Our applications handle over a hundred million pageviews per month, over a quarter of a billion transactions, incorporate automation and auto-scaling, and span multiple redundant cloud regions and availability zones designed for high availability. Our services are built on significant AWS & Azure footprints, utilizing dozens of cloud PaaS services in addition to managed infrastructure.

This position is part of a highly collaborative team including other DevOps engineers, developers, weird security hacker types, and data analytics nerds. Opportunities will exist to engage various development teams, learn new technologies, and mentor junior team members.

Why Symphony Talent is better than your current opportunity:

  • Work in a cloud-first organization that sells cloud based solutions and leverages them internally
  • Work with many modern automation technologies
  • Influence IT strategy, tools, and budget
  • Participate in open-source projects (if desired)
  • Bright, fun, and casual office environment
  • Flexible schedules
  • Interesting work and global customers

What it takes to get this opportunity:

  • Hands on experience with Azure and AWS. Experience building and managing modern cloud services across not only IaaS offerings, but platform and serverless services as well within cloud service provider ecosystems.

  • Experience with infrastructure automation tooling (AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, etc)
  • Deployment Automation Experience (Azure DevOps, Jenkins, CodeDeploy, etc)
  • Source control experience
  • Linux
  • Windows
  • Motivation to learn new things quickly
  • Willingness to admit if you don’t know something (we don’t know everything either)
  • A desire to iterate and improve the environment you work in.
  • DevOps thought leadership and initiative to help guide and mentor fellow team members

It would be cool if you also had:

  • Experience in agile scrum development teams
  • A team player attitude and willingness to partner with other teams and share in success
  • Experience using system monitoring tools and troubleshooting cloud workloads
  • Experience deploying and working with security automation tools
  • Some light development skills (understanding our Developers helps tremendously)
  • The ability to share new ideas/approaches with team members with an open mind, but tenacity to push for what you believe in when appropriate.

Additional Benefits:

  • 25 days holiday, increasing by one additional day for each completed year.
  • Competitive compensation
  • Great benefits package, including Pension and Private Healthcare
  • Learning & growth programs
  • Open, collaborative culture
