As a Barclays Senior DevOps Engineer, you will focus to bridge the gap between development and operations for various business areas like Post Trade Technology, Wholesale Lending, CRM, and Sales. You will streamline software delivery and maintenance across these departments by implementing automation, collaboration tools, and a culture of shared responsibility. This fosters faster deployment cycles, improved software quality, and a more efficient workflow for all involved.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

Applying robust monitoring and alerting systems to proactively identify and address system issues

Staying abreast of the latest DevOps tools, methodologies, and best practices

Evaluating and recommending new technologies to enhance software delivery capabilities to Senior Manager

What we’re looking for:

Familiarity with Linux Fundamentals

Proficiency and competence in scripting/programming: skills in languages like Java, Groovy, Python, Bash, or similar for automation tasks

Competence in version management (Git, GitHub, GitLab, Policy as code)

Knowledge /exposure to JavaScript, Node.js, Ruby, PHP, DevSecOps (i.e., code analysis, vulnerability assessment) and to proactive monitoring (i.e., Nagios, Splunk)

Skills that will help you in the role:

Cloud Platforms: In-depth experience with cloud service providers (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc)

CI/CD Tools: Expert knowledge of CI/CD tools (Jenkins, CircleCI, GitLab CI/CD, etc)

Experience with tools like Ansible, Chef, or Puppet

Solid grasp of Docker, Kubernetes, or other container technologies

Where will you be working?Our Prague office is based in the financial centre of Prague. We are part of the Operations and Technology Division, and as such, we try our best to stay at the top of our technological game. However, the technology itself is not the most important thing. What matters the most to us is the way our ingenuity can help provide better service to our customers and make life easier for our employees.
