You can help create a world in which responsible, sustainable vehicles revolutionise the driving experience for generations. Our vision is to leverage the incredible potential of technology to build vehicles that not only offer a premium, all-encompassing digital experience, but that also make our customers lives better.

You are expected to work with a security-first mindset and encourage best practices throughout the development team, also reviewing deployment and operational environments, troubleshoot issues and manage technical operations. Being a senior, it will be your responsibility to evangelise Site Reliability Engineering practices to the global Jaguar Land Rover team.




  • Considerable experience in a Site Reliability Engineering or similar role.

  • Working knowledge of containerised apps and the SDLC.

  • Strong experience with at least one public cloud platform (GCP, AWS, Azure etc.) and ideally working knowledge of Kubernetes.

  • Good knowledge of infrastructure as code (Terraform) and scripting languages (Bash / Python).

  • Solid understanding of networking concepts, technologies, and protocols (TCP/IP, IPSec, HTTP(S), FTP, DHCP, DNS).

  • Experience with SCM systems (Git / GitHub / GitLab) and modern CI/CD tools and techniques.
