We’re reinventing what tomorrow looks like at Jaguar Land Rover. There’s a revolution underway in our industry – and we’re leading it. We’ve always been innovators. But our future will be driven by the possibilities created by new technologies as never before. Jaguar Land Rover has long pushed the boundaries of technology. Now digital innovation lies at the heart of our business – because it is central to our future strategy. We are focused on the development of electric, connected and driverless cars that will reshape the whole industry.

You will be working particularly closely with the Principal Site Reliability Engineer to ensure applications built in the lab are cloud-native, conform to 12 Factor principles and are in line with platform capacity and resilience requirements. The two of you will also work together to own incident management processes and support of live apps.


Reporting directly to the Global Digital Development Centre Lead, and with line management and mentoring responsibilities for other engineers, you will consistently deliver to challenging business objectives, with a focus on testability, robustness, and performance for exciting new projects.
