DevOps Engineer

Remote, Permanent/Contract, Full Time


Pragma is a fast-expanding cybersecurity consultancy, led by industry veterans, that provides a range of security services to clients across Asia and Europe. We have a client base that spans tiny start-ups to colossal multinationals, and every industry from Finance to Shipping to Sports and

Education. We believe in hiring the smartest people with the best professional skills and giving them the support, they need to grow and develop.

Our practice is now seeking to recruit a DevOps Engineer. In this role, you will develop and operate our Secure Cloud Platform, building out bespoke workloads for clients, and working with our security engineers to create and operate bulletproof solutions.

Our clients in turn will look to you for advice and support as they grapple with security certifications, or cloud migrations, or meeting the exacting demands of Financial Regulators, or the growing pains of turning a small start-up into a world-beating multinational.

Pragma is committed to diversity and inclusion and assesses all applicants equally on their merits. We are committed to building a radically different working culture that gives people the chance to build a working life that works for both them and their clients. We fully support remote working.
