You know what they say: with enough hot air, even a turkey can fly.

That’s why, the bigger the buzz about DevOps, the harder it gets to spot a true DevOps business.

And maybe you’re currently a part of the problem?

Are you selling clients solutions that aren’t as well-thought-out as you’d like? Maybe you’re the lone voice of DevOps within a consultancy that’s spread itself a little too thin?

Join Contino and we promise that you’ll never have to explain ‘anti-pattern’ to your colleagues ever again. Here, you’ll be working with a group of uncompromising, intelligent people who are as dedicated as you are to delivering all-in DevOps.

You’ll soon see that in a world of bandwagon-jumpers and lumbering generalists, we’re probably the UK’s only real DevOps Consultancy. We’ve grown from nothing to nearly 300 people in our first three years. Our clients include some very big names in financial services, telecoms, retail and eCommerce and also one of a handful of trusted Hashicorp, Kubernetes and AWS partners.


Do what you do best

As one of our Account Principals, you’ll be getting on with what you do best: bringing DevOps to life for clients.

It’s a pivotal role. (For ‘pivotal’ read: indispensable; relentless; occasionally thankless; always rewarding.) You’ll be the link between customers (both current and prospective) and our engineering and delivery teams. You’ll keep information flowing, projects progressing, project teams engaged and customers invested.

You’ll need to deploy your full repertoire of ‘influencing skills’: challenging assumptions, coaching junior colleagues, nurturing client relationships. Beyond that, there’s no set tech-stack, but the more of the following you know, the better:

• Cloud implementation/engineering (AWS, Azure, GCP)

• Configuration management (Ansible, Puppet, Chef)

• Containerisation and orchestration (Docker, Terraform, Kubernetes, Sysdig, Mesos)

• Scripting or development (Python, Java, Bash, Go)

• Methodologies (TDD, BDD, Agile, Lean, DevOps)

• CI/CD (Jenkins, TeamCity, Travis, Bamboo, GoCD)


If there’s something on that list you want to learn, this is a great move for you – we give everyone £5k a year to spend on their personal development. There’s plenty of room here to articulate your opinions and take the initiative too. Just stick to Wheaton’s Law, and you’ll fit in fine.

This office is by Liverpool Street, surrounded by London's best eateries, pubs and attractions, Ideal for celebrating your big wins. And everyone else’s..
