Job description

Position Description:

The Space, Defence and Intelligence business unit in CGI is a true IT Systems Integrator. We work, build, and operate bespoke, technically complex, mission-critical systems which help our clients keep us all safe and secure. We bring innovation to our clients using proven and emerging technologies, agile delivery processes and our deep expertise across the breadth of space, defence, intelligence, aerospace and maritime, all underpinned by our end-to-end cyber capability. We work collaboratively with global technology companies, cutting edge SMEs and academia to deliver the optimal solution for each client.

We’re expanding our team of DevOps Engineer. If you have a solid Linux foundation and an enthusiasm for technology, we’d love you to join us.

The team’s focus is a shared ownership and drive to achieve the client’s goals. We aim for everyone to be involved in software integration, testing, deployment and operations. We all have direct contact with our client on a daily basis. The team can ask questions directly to ensure they build what is really needed. If you are interested in Open Source, Kubernetes, rapid prototyping, regular demonstration of completed work, creating sustainable systems, and thinking ahead but not overcomplicating for today, this will suit you.

Due to the secure access to the systems, this position will require frequent travel to our office in Reading.
