Why are we recruiting this role?

KOJO is a company on the move. In the last few years we’ve opened two new offices, launched a new division, grown our revenue by over 50% and expanded our national team across all divisions. All of this has been driven by consistently delivering awesome work to our clients, and winning new business as a result.

Of course - more work, bigger projects and an adventurous use of technology means our Sys Admin, DevOps and Development needs have also escalated. Our brilliant and much-loved Technical Director Hubert needs a side-kick, an apprentice, a Skywalker to his Obi-Wan.

The roadmap for this role is exciting. With clear aspirations to move towards an advanced model that includes deployment pipelines and toolsets, micro-architectures and cloud-based hosting environments - this role will expose you to a broad range of technologies to stretch your toolkit and teach you new skills. All this under the tutelage of a manager and team that encourage you to problem solve and contribute at a higher level.
