Senior Cloud Operations Engineer-London

An opportunity to join our small team in its growth phase with venture funding and a global customer base. We offer competitive remuneration and benefits, family-friendly flexible working time, and home working. We have developed a relaxed, collaborative, supportive, and high performance culture that values employee health and well-being.

We are a SaaS provider of rich video and speech data capture and analytics within the workflows of large field workforces (field engineers, field service, auditing, reporting, health-and-safety, sales, etc). Our customers are typically large multinationals: utilities, telecoms, manufacturing, facilities management etc.

Technologies:

Mobile and Web apps are used to capture/manipulate/view structured multimedia data. This data is stored, analysed using machine learning, computer vision and other technology and labelled on the AWS cloud. Various integrations push the analysis results into other systems such as field service management systems, CRM, etc. We are continually enhancing the data collection capabilities of our app.

We use github, travis-ci, code-pipeline and cloudformation and a devops approach to achieve a high release cadence through our CD pipeline. We use Django rest framework and Postgresql to provide our primary REST API interface.

Our web-app is built using react. AWS SQS queues are then used to distribute work to a variety of processing systems / microservices which use a combination of commodity analytics APIs (e.g. aws transcribe, google speech, aws rekognition) and bespoke AI algorithms and models (e.g. tensorflow) to provide advanced speech, image and video analytics.

As you would expect our system also provides various collaboration, administration, management and security related features around the central video capture and analytics. We offer both shared and dedicated deployments of the software; by defining all of our infrastructure as code we are able to easily deploy dedicated copies of our entire system into dedicated VPCs for our large customers. Many of our customers have stringent security requirements around their video data.
