DevOps Engineer / Developer – Red Hat Enterprise Linux
3 month remote working contract – circ £430-£470 inside IR35
Our South Coast based client (Southampton / Portsmouth / Fareham / Hants) has a 3 month DevOps / Developer contract assignment that can be carried out onsite or 100% remotely. The DevOps Engineer will need good Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) services management experience as the focus of the role will be around deploying existing software, previously deployed on Windows and CentOS, onto RHEL, firstly in a test environment and then on a virtual machine. Although this is initially a 3 month contract there are a number of other Linux projects the client has that would make extensions highly likely for someone that proves themselves.
The main responsibilities include;
Deploying the existing software stack onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) first in a test environment and then on a customer’s virtual machine. Documenting all of the steps and packages required to deploy their software stack on RHEL. Working with the Project Manager to capture/direct the customer’s requirements for a secondary virtual machine to act as a failover server for the main VM. Architecting, deploying and documenting the Failover System. Producing an install script/package for use on Linux.
To be considered for the post we would expect candidates to have the following essential skills / experience and as much of the desirables as possible;
RHEL management including service management & package management MongoDB SQL DB’s (Maria DB) Understanding of Mirroring / Failover and High Availability Systems
