Are you looking for a role which will contribute to global change? Are you interested in using your extensive knowledge and skills in software delivery to lead the DevOps area within a development team? Are you committed to working across all development systems to introduce streamlined and effective deployment processes? 

The University of Leeds is one of the top 100 universities in the world and University of the Year 2017, as named by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

Using a combination of different technologies, you will primarily be responsible for the DevOps activities required to support software development work within the team. This will include writing Azure DevOps pipelines, and using YML and the Azure DevOps GUI to produce workflows for release management. You will have significant experience of developing these techniques from the ground up, and be expected to take the lead role in implementing these across IT.

Using your experience of workflows and automation in Azure DevOps pipelines you will provide best practice guidance on the configuration and implementation of this technology.

You will be responsible for producing and reviewing documentation in line with standard operating procedures to ensure alignment with industry best practice, IT standards, and regulatory compliance.
