DevOps engineer apprenticeship

Take responsibility for all aspects of the development and operations process

A DevOps engineer enables organisations to get valuable working software to active users, both external and internal, frequently and safely, reducing time to market, delivering increased value and improving the quality of digital services. At its simplest, DevOps is a philosophy and way of working that brings together two areas of the IT organisation, namely those who develop the software and those who are then required to support it in the live environment. On a DevOps engineer apprenticeship, you’ll encapsulate both disciplines, with an understanding and appreciation of how your code functions when being used in the real world and troubleshoot any issues that may arise, while taking a cloud-infrastructure focused perspective. You’ll take responsibility for all aspects of the development and operations process—the design, build, test, implement, release and continual iteration of products. You’ll learn to script and code, work with application programming interfaces, and evolve and define architecture.
