The Role

We’re looking for a DevOps Engineer to join Gareth Davis, our DevOps Lead, as the first set of boots on the ground in our growing DevOps team at Bonfire.  As a Developer who enjoys deployment and infrastructure related challenges, you’ll be taking on a broad spectrum of responsibilities, consistently solving interesting problems and delivering results.

Employee Testimonial
