DevOps Engineer

at CheckRecipient in London

(₤40000 - ₤80000 per year)


At CheckRecipient, we have the ambitious goal of protecting enterprise networks against new and intelligent cyber threats, making it impossible for sensitive information to end up in the wrong hands.

Through advanced machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), CheckRecipient prevents breaches in real-time, outsmarting traditional rule-based, admin-intensive approaches which can only report a breach after it has occurred.

Founded by a team of Imperial College engineers, we’re backed by some of the world’s leading technology investors. We work with international clients in the financial, legal and professional services sectors who trust us to find the most intelligent ways to keep their data secure.

We’re looking to work with the brightest minds to help us accomplish our goal and tackle the biggest cybersecurity problems.


You’ll join the company at a hugely exciting time where we are looking to build out our product offering to detect and block advanced threats (both malicious and inadvertent) in real-time (sub 1-second response times). Everyone on the engineering team has the opportunity to learn new technologies and experiment with new ideas. You will have the autonomy to work on your own projects whilst working closely with our CTO to deliver on our vision.

Dealing with massive datasets at scale requires ingenuity and strong analytical skills. Our agnostic approach to problem solving means we favour hiring engineers who pride themselves on the ability to learn new skills, their comfort with the unknown and their willingness to experiment.

At CheckRecipient you’ll be growing your skill-set on an ongoing basis; regular and continuous development is something we believe in and as an employee we will seek to create opportunities for you to evolve.

We build quickly and follow both agile and continuous delivery paradigms. As a member of the CheckRecipient engineering team, you will have the autonomy to work on your own projects, and be part of our regular round tables to bounce ideas around as a team on how to tackle our biggest challenges.

Here are some of the technologies we’re working with / interested in:

- Python, Ruby, Go, Node.js

- Kubernetes, Rancher, Docker

- Kafka

- Postgres, DynamoDB, Cassandra, MongoDB, RabbitMQ

- Redshift
