About You

As a Lead Developer Experience Engineer at Tide, you’ll be responsible for providing our engineers with tools and technology that allows them to work quickly, independently and smoothly. Our mission is that no developer should ever have to rely on another person or team to be able to deliver their work into production. You’ll be a big part of defining how we realise that goal.

Some of the things you’ll be doing:

  • Building out Tide’s Developer Experience function across three engineering centres globally
  • Designing and building a great CI/CD pipeline that allows Tide to verify security, quality, compliance and more - all in a pipeline
  • Work on improving Tide’s deployment tooling to ensure that engineers are always able to deploy to production within minutes
  • Ensuring that engineering teams are able to configure and provision their own cloud infrastructure in a way that is secure, performant, compliant and highly available
  • Eliminating the need for engineers to make ad-hoc requests to the Cloud Engineering team
  • Setting up monitoring and alerting defaults so developers will always see what happens, or doesn’t, when their code is run

You’ll be a great fit if: 

  • You’re a continuous delivery advocate, understanding the benefits it brings as well as the challenges
  • You understand that pipelines are a platform for delivering value and consider them to be just as important as the production environment
  • You are a great proponent of “You build it, you run it”, but understand that it’s not just a matter of handing over the keys
  • You’re happy working across timezones (but will have a team close to home)
  • You have really good experience with AWS and you don’t mind diving deep into whatever technology is best for the situation
  • You’re a programmer with extensive cloud infrastructure exposure
  • You want to define a strategy and lead a team (or several teams) to get it delivered, while keeping hands-on when you can
