What we do
Exonar enables organisations to understand the content and intent of the structured and unstructured information they hold and take action on the insights they discover.
We use machine learning and big data technology (usually in the customer environment) to ingest, index and organise data at scale often as part of large information governance, data discovery and privacy programmes.
We are looking for a motivated IT engineer, eager to learn more DevOps skills and interested in enabling our advanced information discovery platform powered by Big Data tech.
Working within a small agile team, the role will involve
managing a number of servers in Azure: provisioning, monitoring, upgrade, etc.
These servers are mostly CentOS, but some of them are Windows Server
managing some physical servers in our hosted datacentre: installation, deployment, etc.
managing the network between our different sites (Newbury, Reading, hosted data-centre), and the move to a single new office next year
occasionally, helping users with their laptop, on a “best effort” basis
helping with the installation, deployment and second-level support of our platform

a University degree in software engineering, computer science, a related discipline or appropriate industry experience
a minimum 2 year of professional experience in using Linux, ideally CentOS/RedHat
experience with networking: DHCP, DNS, VPN, etc.
you’re comfortable with Bash scripting
you show attention to detail, reliability and a sense of service
you are able to adapt to changing priorities in a fast-paced environment
What we offer
Aside from being part of an exciting funded start-up business in the world of data, we offer the kind of benefits you’d expect:
Unlimited holiday! (assuming you nail your job!…)
Your choice of hardware
Espresso machine / beer&wine fridge / soft drinks
Regular company social events & clubs
Exonar is a fast-paced and friendly place to work, benefitting from a ‘start up’ culture and the opportunity to work with and learn from a fantastic group of colleagues.
You will be working on new challenges every day and will find yourself pushing the boundaries of your knowledge and developing new skills frequently.
A huge benefit of working for Exonar is the flexibility you’ll have in developing yourself and shaping your role. You will work with a supportive and close knit team, and will have responsibility for delivering client success and the opportunity to drive the growth of the company from day one.
If you are motivated by solving complex problems with out-of-the-box thinking, and providing solutions that deliver real results, you’ll enjoy working at Exonar.
