Geospatial DevOps Engineer
Join the Growth Story at Envitia
We’re a software and services company on a growth trajectory with 20+ years of experience in delivering world-class location and data software and expertise to customers in the public and private sector.
We’re building a team that is hungry for success with a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey.
What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions. We do this through our team of data consultants who undertake cutting edge R&D projects or work with customers to find the best data modelling, architecture and standards so they’re able to make use of their data. Or, through our software products where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions.
As Envitia responds to a recent period of rapid growth and is well positioned in the market for continued and sustained success, we are now looking for a Geospatial DevOps Engineer to take responsibility for all aspects of testing, integration, customer acceptance, and on-site installations. The role may also encompass some end user training potentially at customer sites based around the UK.
You’re not looking for a standard 9-5 role. You want the best of both worlds: a start-up mentality with disruptive thinking, but with the security of a profitable, larger company, with a solid customer base and financial stability.
You believe you have the potential to succeed and want to push your boundaries but acknowledge that success comes through hard work, a positive attitude, and being surrounded by a great team that refuses to sit back and wait for opportunities to come to them. Most of all you are suited to our culture of absolute transparency and critical honesty as the bedrock of continuous improvement.
You will need to demonstrate that you are passionate about what you do and that you drive success in your area.
