This role exists within a business in the Telecom space which has been in operation for several years, and one that has grown to circa 26 employees with further plans to rapidly expand. They are a fast-growing mobility management and TEM platform whose software product helps organisations remove workflow inefficiency and expense wastage from their mobility processes and telecom spend.

  • Rapidly move the team towards CICD.
  • Own and deploy their API design strategy, API monitoring framework, API usage framework and enablement guidance. API integration between their platform and their broader client and partner ecosystem is critical to their success.
  • Ensure their approach to infrastructure (performance, uptime and scalability) is best practice and appropriate for their business.
  • Ensure the security of their customers’ data, their infrastructure and code
 You will enjoy:
  • An environment that is driven, ambitious and challenging the ‘norm’.
  • Flexible working conditions.
