Job Description

We bet, we game and we love our tech.  

We’re focused on developing our platform using the best of Public and Private Cloud technologies combined with in-house and open source technology. We need a Cloud Engineer who loves everything about delivery to join us, make a difference to our output and improve our customers’ betting experience. Here at William Hill we want our Cloud Engineers to be able to take control, so we work to the principle, “if you can do it, crack on and do it.” If you love the flash of a command line prompt and take great pride in connecting all the jigsaw pieces of an IT service, we think you’ll fit in well here. We're currently migrating our infrastructure to AWS and want you to join us on this journey.  

About Us
With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.

Your Role in the team
All this variety means that no two days are the same. You’ll help us spin through our backlog as we expand into AWS through effective DevOps principles, clear Terraform code, Docker/Kubernetes orchestration and automation. This includes making sure our infrastructure and applications are running smoothly and use your operational skills to advance our platforms resilience. Working closely with developers, test engineers and front line support teams you’ll deliver high quality environments to meet the business needs. You’ll have an opportunity to enhance your technical skills across a wide range of areas and pioneer new technology within Trading Technology. You can quickly diagnose and resolve platform problems, you can spot why a container is behaving badly in a heartbeat, and you can collaborate with developers to resolve code versus infrastructure conflicts.

Skills Needed
You’ll have experience in AWS and have commercial experience of migrating applications to AWS and a focus on security in public and private cloud. You’ll have demonstrable knowledge of Linux System administration in a complex data centre environment. Working knowledge and understanding of Terraform and Puppet is essential and will give you a good platform for success in this role. It’s a hands-on role and you won’t ever be sat twiddling your thumbs. We’re looking for a curious engineer who wants to push forward, faster and smarter, never settling for second best. And if you’re anything like us, you won’t rest until a problem is solved.

What we offer
We’ll welcome you onboard with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme. Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

William Hill in Leeds.
Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
