Become part of the team

Do you find yourself frustrated working with legacy technology or processes; constantly finding the need to innovate new and fit-for-purpose solutions? These are the problems our clients ask us to solve. You'll also need to be a pragmatist, to understand the design constraints of projects and get the job done. 

As a cloud engineer you may operate solo, or within a team, where you and your teammates are responsible for successful delivery of the project release using an agile methodology. We put a lot of trust in you and your team to meet deadlines, and to find the rhythm and ways of working that suits our clients. You get ownership and control of the processes for taking your code into live. 

Our teams have a mix of technology skills and work collaboratively, following DevOps (we emphasise the Dev in DevOps) and Test Automation practices. We also need you to contribute to developing the team, perhaps by sharing your expertise and experiences, or by mentoring teammates.

Your Accountability

As a Senior Software Engineer (Consultant), you are a practicing member of the team, designing, writing and testing code. You'll be competent at owning and delivering solutions and being the design authority for how features are implemented.

  • You can expect to use your knowledge of architecture; our clients will look to you for advice and contribution in higher level architectural discussions.
  • You're familiar with the development process, and take ownership for certain aspects of the process by putting appropriate methods and tools in place.
  • You will have regular conversations with clients, and be a point of contact between the client and the project team.
  • Coaching and mentoring more junior members of the team, and deputising for the team principal, will be important in the role.
  • Your involvement in shaping bids (working with a bid team) will assist to create approaches or proposals, and perhaps you may also add valuable contributions during presentations to clients in a formal selection process.
  • You'll play an active role in account management.

What we're looking for

PA is a Google Cloud Premier Partner and we create innovative solutions using the whole spectrum of Google Cloud products and services, as well as other leading cloud platforms.

One project might need you to modernize and transform a legacy application with cloud technologies and the next might see you creating an innovative new digital product through a series of agile sprints.

You probably have a core skill set, either in Java, JavaScript or Python, but it's your understanding of data structures, algorithms, libraries and development methods that are most important. You will likely have some experience developing applications on Google Cloud, perhaps using serverless technologies like App Engine and Cloud Functions, or possibly writing containerized applications for Kubernetes.

PA’s common technology components:

Google Cloud

  • App Engine, Cloud Functions
  • Cloud Endpoints
  • Kubernetes Engine, Compute Engine
  • Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner and BigQuery
  • Dataflow, Apache Beam
  • DialogFlow

Architecture

  • Microservices patterns
  • Event-driven architectures and message queues
  • Relational and non-relational databases

Languages and frameworks

Benefits
  • Private medical insurance
  • Interest free season ticket loan
  • 25 days annual leave with the opportunity to buy 5 additional days
  • Company pension scheme
  • Annual performance-based bonus
  • Life and Income protection insurance
  • Tax efficient benefits (cycle to work, give as you earn)
  • Voluntary benefits (Dental, critical illness, spouse/partner life assurance)
