Job Description

Are you a Redhat Linux advocate? Do you love finding innovative solutions relating to all things digital? Can you mentor colleagues to become Linux specialists? If yes, then we may have the role for you!

As an IT Operations Lead Engineer, you will be looking after our digital banking systems within production. You will lead a team of engineers who oversee our Linux platform and deliver on projects, to help improve Metro Bank’s digital capabilities. You will support your colleagues by solving complex digital platform queries, so they can continue to utilise our technologies.

So what will you be doing…

• Looking after all Linux operating system applications
• Troubleshooting web applications to identify issues raised
• Mentoring and supporting colleagues in the digital space
• Producing design documentation
• Resolving all third line and complex issues relating to our digital platforms
• Delivering key projects to help us improve our capabilities to create fans

You need to be this kind of person…

• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
• Prepared to stick at something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job
• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment

We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things…

• You need to have experience as a 3rd line IT Operations Engineer, with a focus on digital technologies such as JBoss or Tomcat
• To be amazing in this role, we need you to have excellent knowledge around troubleshooting applications, and network load balancer
• In order to excel in this role, you will be able to demonstrate good Unix/Linux knowledge
• We would love for you to be able to showcase an analytical approach to problem solving and be able to work with databases
• It would be wonderful if you have experience with Docker or Kubernetes, but this is not essential


Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Good luck!
