What you can expect from us

Business is transforming fast. And at CGI, you’ll be at the centre of a digital revolution. As one of the largest independent technology and business services companies in the world, we can deliver exciting opportunities for you to build your career.

Alongside a competitive salary, we offer you access to our share scheme (3% + 3% matching) making you a member not just an employee. You also have the option to benefit from private medical and dental insurance, flexible retirement options, childcare vouchers and a cycle to work scheme.

As for the future? We work as one team, and are a Top 100 employer. Be a successful part of our story and we’ll support you in taking your career anywhere you want it to go.

All successful applicants must hold, or be eligible & willing to obtain, UK SC clearance with the view to progressing to higher level clearance if required.

Your future duties and responsibilities:

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer with Ansible to join the our existing system team. Candidates should have a track record in Ansible, VMWare and Linux.
A track record in networking, Amazon Web Services, FreeIPA, RedHat OpenShift and PostgreSQL would be desirable but not essential as training can be provided if required. As a member of the system team you will be implementing our continuous integration and testing pipelines and onsite / cloud solutions. You will also provide specialist support to four scrum teams on the project including knowledge sharing and implementing best practice.

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

Excellent team working and communication skills are essential. The requirements, the technologies and the problems we will be solving can change at short notice. We need engineers who are pragmatic and delivery focused, who can adapt as situations evolve, who enjoy new experiences and always want to learn new things. A background in physics, astrophysics or other STEM discipline is desirable but not essential.

Core Technical track record in Ansible, VMWare and Linux is key.

Our working approach is built around our client’s needs. That’s not to say yours aren’t important too and in a post-pandemic world, we want to extend the offer of an open discussion to you as to whether a role can be office or home-based, flexible or hybrid.

We celebrate and reward our colleagues through a variety of methods, and we promote the health and well-being of our members through a range of programs and activities. We are also committed to ensuring a safe work environment through the prevention of harmful workplace incidents including physical harm, harassment and violence.

Unconditionally inclusive – we know diversity brings a great greater variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences to the workplace. We actively encourage diversity at CGI and inclusivity is one of our top priorities, with support networks for Parents, Women, LGBT+, BAME, Neurodiversity and Disability.
