At Gearset, we build a cutting-edge DevOps solution for the millions of developers building applications on Salesforce, the world's biggest enterprise PaaS. In only a few years Gearset has become the DevOps solution of choice for some of the world's biggest companies, including IBM, McKesson, and even Salesforce themselves. As a Gearset DevOps Engineer you will work collaboratively using a pragmatically-chosen modern tech stack (Kubernetes, Docker, AWS, .NET) to help Gearset run a scalable, secure and reliable service, and enable development of the solution to scale with the growth of the company. Gearset was founded by a group of software engineers and our product has always been built on a robust devops philosophy, but we know there is so much more that we can do.
Who are we?
We're a team of smart, pragmatic people who enjoy giving our best every day to solve our users' problems. We recently received three awards from Best Companies in 2021, putting us in the top 10 best mid-sized companies to work for, the top three best technology companies in the UK, and top 5 best companies in the East of England. We’re proud of what we’ve built and how we’ve built it. We work as a team, where attributes of trust, openness and honesty are key, as they allow us to have a feedback-driven culture that keeps us always improving.
