UBS Financial Services IT DevOps Engineer in London, United Kingdom

Your role:

This is an exciting opportunity to join a ‘start up’ within a tier 1 financial services client. This is a completely greenfield initiative where the focus is on innovation. Phase 1 is to deliver a working prototype of a new client facing web application, prior to global roll out of a multi-channel platform which will be a step change in the way the bank engages with new customers. The team will leverage extensive knowledge from the established Wealth Management delivery team globally and the caliber of minds is expected to be very high. This is a very high profile project and so the ability to work within a team driving new ideas through to realization in short timescales is key.

The solution will be delivered and hosted internally on premise (not cloud hosted), and will utilize many pre-existing technologies such as TeamCity CI server, Git source control, Sonar static analysis, JIRA issue tracking, Nexus artifact repository, etc. The core server infrastructure is provisioned by a separate team responsible for delivering the underlying servers to the application teams. The server-side code will be written primarily in Java 8 and the client-side code in HTML5.

A successful candidate will be comfortable evaluating the pre-existing build, packaging, deployment, test automation execution parts of the continuous deployment pipeline within similar teams. After the evaluation he/she will propose a target model for the new team which either extends the current model or migrates to a new target model. Moreover successful candidates will have an \"automated everything\" mindset so the team can minimize cost / time spent on repeatable tasks.
