We’re looking for a Linux engineer to join our Delivery Enablement group. We deliver Paddy Power Betfair infrastructure automation and support Porto office services.
We develop automation for private (OpenStack) and public clouds to provide deployment facilities for Paddy Power Betfair services.
You are a Linux engineer and you have Python (or similar) and scripting experience. You feel comfortable around config management tools.
This job will require skills on Linux, virtualization, networking and storage.
Monitoring tools experience is required as well as a reliability focused mindset.
You’ll get the opportunity to support our CD/CI pipelines and help shape our production pipelines.
Our services run on 1000’s of machines. You should be comfortable working at scale and supporting clustered computing across a number of technologies that range from web application services to message queues, data streaming and data storage technologies.
You’ll be part of the automation community at Paddy Power Betfair. This role is based in Porto, but the community is spread across our offices in the UK, Ireland and Romania as well, so it would be desirable if you could travel from time to time.
As well as supporting the operational running of the site, we look to automate our delivery processes and implement tooling to improve stability, performance and monitoring. We work with extremely high performing, high throughput, distributed systems which support millions of customers 24 hours a day so you’ll need to be careful, thorough and passionate about performance and reliability. Working in this environment also means you’ll bring a lot of experience to our team but you will also learn a lot, very quickly.
