Feefo’s reviews platform runs entirely on cutting edge cloud based infrastructure and services. You will work as part of a small team responsible for ensuring that infrastructure is performant, scalable, secure and resilient, while identifying areas for improvement, proposing approaches to implementing those improvements and the impact of those changes.
Your day-to-day work will be a mixture of interrupt driven work, providing advice and assistance to the product teams, identifying, diagnosing and resolving issues within the Feefo cloud platform as well as working on longer-term projects to improve the Feefo cloud infrastructure. The technologies you will be responsible for include IP networking and associated concepts (e.g. load-balancing, routing), Linux-based virtual machines, Kubernetes cluster and microservices, monitoring and alerting solutions, SQL and NoSQL databases.
You will report to Cloud Infrastructure Manager but will be expected to work closely with other departments within Feefo, particularly the product teams consisting of product managers and software developers who implement new functionality to the Feefo application -- ensuring that the cloud architecture to support the new functionality is best in class.
