Description:

This is a remote first role, with an option to work in the Manchester office for those who want to. You may be asked to occasionally attend meetings in Manchester.

Platform engineers are a key part of our Digital Technology team here at Co-op. We provide automation, tooling, and cloud infrastructure to our entire digital group.

We are the experts in infrastructure. The people who design, build, and operate the platforms that our digital products and services run on top of. We make sure that the systems that we rely on provide the security, resilience and performance that we need… from Food to Funeralcare, Legal Services to Insurance, and everything in between. Our infrastructure is a healthy mix of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, making the most of Infrastructure as Code technologies like Terraform, Packer, Jenkins, and git for version control.

Co-op is a historic organisation, founded on principals of mutuality and support for local communities. Our vision is to co-operate for a fairer world, and collaboration is part of who we are. We work in small, multi-disciplinary teams and run our own delivery and deployments. Working with an Agile approach, we really value knowledge sharing so we often use pair and ensemble-programming. We also provide career and technical coaching, and we run communities of practice to support continuous learning.

This role would best suit applicants who have significant experience working with AWS.
