Web App Support Engineer 

They are looking for someone who can join the AWS Support team as their new Web Application Support Engineer, with a view to becoming an AWS DevOps expert within the next 2 years.

You’ll be responsible for the day to day running of their web platform, and the support around it.

The web app is hosted on a linux platform, and the ideal candidate is someone who can look after the logs, someone who can start and stop investigations, analyse the logs and how the hub fits together. They would need someone who can diagnose issues within a multicomponent platform.

Ideally they’d have experience navigating, checking and querying the linux platform. Within the next 12 months they’ll be migrating to AWS, and the opportunity to learn and become a DevOps engineer is definitely there.


Linux/Ubuntu server experience

Web application support and analysis experience

Log Analysis experience

AWS not required, but some knowledge of it would be good.

Bash or Shell scripting preferred, some scripting knowledge needed. It doesn’t matter how much, however they would need the logic for scripting for when they go full AWS will have to write some terraform scripts

If they’ve used any performance monitoring tools like Splunk or App Dynamics for automation, it would be desirable. They’re looking to get rid of the manual work.

Lots of log analysis in the role, so experience with that would be ideal.
