By applying expert consulting, analytical tools, software and systems to convert data into valuable business decisions
Our expertise spans a variety of industries and we provide software to some of the world’s largest finance, telcos and other blue-chip companies.
The crown jewel in our software suite is PowerCurve which provides best-in-class decisioning applied across the whole customer life-cycle from customer acquisition to in-life and collections, as well as in fraud detection and identity resolution systems.
PowerCurve is able to execute on hosted and cloud platforms.
Decision Analytics has just laid the foundations to move from a collection of individual products towards a consolidated cloud-based platform delivering industry leading capabilities across data, analytics and decisioning, embedding latest technologies such as machine learning, Big Data and AI.
We have good momentum and our core product has trebled in revenues over the last 3 years and if we were a stand-alone business we would probably qualify as a unicorn.
As part of the next phase in our growth, we are looking to expand our Site Reliability Engineering team to offer round the global cover.
As an organisation we are fully convinced that everything should be automated and that software should run software and believe in the Site Reliability Engineering model.
We have established a platform using cutting edge technology, such as Kubernetes, containers, pipelines and monitoring. The candidate will be a forward-looking engineer with an understanding of how SRE will enable operations in the future.
You will have broad operations and automation interests and not shy away from the operational aspects of life and understand that the best way to build reliability is to break things often.
The ideal candidate will have experience of operations, a passion for automation and an interest in software development or they will have experience of software development, a passion for automation and an interest in operational excellence.
If you have incident manager skills and are able to manage rationally and calmly during a crisis that would be an added bonus.
There is an expectation to work occasional peak weekends as well as some on call requirements. This is the beginning of a growing team and we are looking for individuals to grow with it.
As a senior engineer we will be looking to you to role model behaviours as well as give technical leadership within the team.
