Fantastic new opportunity to the market to join our Glasgow-based Fintech client, specialising in managed Cloud provision. The business is entering a growth phase and now recruiting for a seasoned Head of Site Reliability with an infrastructure background, as they continue to grow their tech team from their newly opened, state-of-the-art tech hub in Glasgow.

This is a key hire and the first in this space, as the business begins to build out their new Site Reliability team. The successful candidate will be responsible for building out the function, providing true leadership and co-ordination, whilst having a breadth of technical know-how. This opportunity is truly greenfield in nature and offers a blank canvas to implement plans and procedures with the aim of improving the infrastructure reliability, security and functionality with automation at the forefront.

Reporting into the COO, you will be a natural leader of people and teams, with the goal of collaborating on the design, deployment, and maintenance of the global infrastructure and to provide system support for the Security, Network Operations and Development teams.

The role would ideally suit an experienced automation-focused individual with comprehensive working infrastructure knowledge of Windows and Linux environments (RHEL, Ubuntu), as well as network operating systems experience. Commercial use of Infrastructure-As-Code (IAC) tooling such as Terraform and Ansible is also beneficial.

Candidates who are proactive and dedicated are preferred, as this role is highly visible. You will also be a significant contributor to the team’s IT success, supporting and delivering infrastructure and solutions and working directly with data centre, network, software development and project teams alike.
