TAB's purpose is simple: create technology experiences that make the world work better for billions of people. It’s a lofty one, but when we inject our specialism into some of the biggest companies in the world, we can create game changing products.
Whether its reimagining essential weather services with the Met Office, transforming journey planning with Go-Ahead Group or evolving how TfL test brakes on the tube, our team of engineers, designers, strategists, product owners and Agile specialists are ready to work together and deliver.
We believe that the opportunity for our team is incredibly exciting, as we see user experiences unbundle from smartphones into a multitude of emerging platforms and touch points such as cars, speakers and wearables.
The Lead Engineer (DevOps Specialist) role in a nutshell
As a Lead Engineer (DevOps Specialist), you will be the external voice of TAB in the open source and software vendor communities, demonstrating our commitment to excellence across tooling and automation in the build, deployment and operational automation spaces.
You will steer how TAB reuses the expertise we've built by designing, developing and evangelising software to help us deliver projects more rapidly, more reliably and with even better outcomes for our customers.
You will engage with the FOSS community, including selecting best-of-breed tooling, driving our strategy around open source, and contributing back enhancements to new and existing open source projects.
You will coach and mentor our clients and internal teams, and communicate options and technical designs clearly and accurately, caring just as much about providing them a good experience as you do about delivering the end solution.
