[Hiring] Azure DevOps Engineer @Veracross

Nov 07, 2023 - Veracross is hiring a remote Azure DevOps Engineer. 📍Location: UK.

Our Purpose

Most technology in education is not built for the modern learning experience. At Firefly we have built and constantly evolving a platform for Parent Engagement and Learning Continuity. For parent engagement, our platform makes it easy for schools to share information, helps parents support student achievement and engages everyone in the learning conversation. Firefly’s single, central hub ensures that the home-school partnership is a fundamental part of the learning experience. And for distance learning, our platform enables schools to support their student’s learning, wherever they are, as Firefly enables schools and teachers to deliver engaging lessons remotely, from setting tasks to sharing resources as well as manage parent communication efficiently.

To further our purpose and mission, in February 2023, Firefly Learning joined the Veracross family. Veracross is a leading provider of cloud-based School Information Systems and are based in Wakefield, Massachusetts, USA. Our shared vision is to improve the education experience for students, teachers, school staff, and parents.

How you can help

We already have a rich legacy; we have earned a reputation as the easiest to use school learning tool. But we have even greater ambitions to help every student reach their full potential. As a DevOps Engineer we are looking for someone who will be responsible for implementing the CI/CD pipelines for various products and environments within the Firefly platform hosted on Azure Infrastructure.

Our technologies include web, microservices, RESTful web APIs and the Azure Cloud. Our products are primarily running on .NET, as well as Xamarin Forms for our mobile apps. Web projects are typically built with Web API and React with Redux, as well as a recent focus on improving our testing by increasing automation and implementing better processes. Our platform is multitenant hosting 100s of schools across the globe.

Our Engineering Teams are organised into Squads and each Squad is organised around a product. These Squads are formed from a mix of developers, testers, and designers, who work alongside a Product Manager and Squad Lead to build feature requests. Being part of a DevOps Squad, across the Veracross and Firefly brands, and following a highly collaborative process, you will actively participate in DevOps planning for Firefly, regular stand-ups, and code reviews.
