About The Role

As a Principal Engineer for our Cloud practice, you will be a domain expert who will help lead your team to make impactful contributions for the company and our clients. You will work on client projects to provide infrastructure, IT operations, and security advice and leadership to support our teams in the delivery of mission-critical, deep technical solutions across the enterprise. As a Principal DevOps Engineer, you will promote the highest quality engineering practices, and take a lead role designing and delivering innovative infrastructure focused technical solutions to bring about business change and faster time to value realisation.

TPXimpact is creating a groundbreaking technology consulting business, to deliver world class engineering solutions for our clients. We aim to achieve this through our focus on technical quality and properly implemented Agile methodologies. We have gained excellent traction and are working with prestigious, progressive organisations to drive their digital transformations.

By joining us, you would shape and create the practices that you want to work with. You would work alongside people who share an enthusiasm for technology, for an organisation that values technical quality at every layer, and one that will take an active role in training and improving your skill set.

This role can be based anywhere in the UK. We encourage you to work where you feel most effective. That may be at home, from one of our office hubs or a combination of both. The choice is yours. However you choose to work, you need to be comfortable working with your colleagues remotely as even if you choose to work in a hub, you will likely be working with people based elsewhere. Some travel to client sites may also be expected for this role. This would be for ceremonies such as kick-off meetings, rather than on a regular basis.  

  • Build and lead a high-performing internal engineering capability around our cloud platform solutions.
  • Help our clients modernise their architecture and core technologies.
  • Consult on engineering good practice and quality standards.
  • Take a lead technical role with our teams to guide the delivery of new architecture solutions, platforms, infrastructure, and products.

  • Build full-stack automated quality - IaC, deployment, security, and monitoring.
  • Employ security by design and bake this into DevOps process (DevSecOps).
  • Stay up-to-date with new technologies, languages, and frameworks.
  • Coach and support both DevOps and Infrastructure engineers to adopt quality and security focused engineering standards.
  • Take a lead role in building on our engineering expertise, contributing to the ongoing development of our culture and community of practice.
  • Support the recruitment of both flexible contract staff and permanent hires by building and utilising an industry network, and joining the panel for relevant interviews.
