Head of Platform | Nottingham or London | 90k+ package


Distinct Recruitment have partnered exclusively with a growing tech start-up with offices in Nottingham & in Central London in their search for a new Head of Platform.


They’re 2 years into their journey so they are out of start-up mode and now at a point where they’ve built some solid products & are looking to refine, stabilise & improve on what they currently have in order to grow their already enviable client base. Their existing Head of Platform is leaving, meaning they need someone to step in & take over, taking them to the next phase of growth, in the right way.


The exciting thing about this team is that they are a bright & passionate bunch, always putting their customer’s needs first whilst striving to use the best tools for the job. The opportunity on offer here is truly unique, to manage & evolve their platform, utilising a cloud-first strategy to ensure it is always fit for purpose & enabling them to stay ahead of the competition.


Fun facts about this job:

  • Mindset is key – this team are big believers in writing clean code & getting it right the first time
  • The existing platform is cloud native using Google Cloud Platform, but it has been built in a way that can easily manage multi cloud, so it is all part of one ecosystem
  • You will be leading on all things Cloud so you must be well-versed across cloud and reliability engineering
  • Unlike in some other companies, DevOps won’t be just your responsibility – they believe DevOps is a mindset; not a job title
  • You’ll be dealing with a broad range of technologies including Microservice Architecture, Kubernetes, Node.js, MongoDB, Terraform etc
  • Operating a cloud environment via Infrastructure-as-Code principles (ideally you will have done this before using one of Azure / GCP / AWS)


The role is based remotely at the moment due to Covid but they are looking for their Head of Platform to commute to either the Nottingham or London office twice a week when it is safe to do so.
