Consult Red is an employee-owned company and a trusted partner to some of the world’s largest brands. We’re an R&D technology partner developing cutting-edge ‘Internet of Things (IoT) smart, connected products, video and broadband end-user equipment, streaming TV devices, networks and platforms. Connected devices and systems developed by Consult Red are currently in more than 30 million homes worldwide.
We’re proud to be an employee-owned business. At Consult Red, everyone has a stake and a say. The employees are the business owners, and we work together with shared values and purpose towards our common goals. We want every team member to feel empowered, have a say in our future, and share our success.
If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.
Our engineers rely on a range of infrastructure to keep their projects running smoothly – high-powered build servers, instances of off-the-shelf services like Jenkins and Gitlab, and bespoke tools such as our in-house developed platform that allows an engineer to test code and change channels on a TV they are watching from 5000 miles away.
You will work within our Engineering (Delivery) department, and your colleagues will be your customer - providing you with their requirements and supporting you to prioritise the most important features and functionality. You will also work closely alongside our IT (Operations) team to ensure that the right on-premise and cloud infrastructure is in place to support this and that the tools and services integrate neatly with our company's IT infrastructure.
You will become a champion for the tools you manage, working to spread good practice among our engineer teams and helping to improve our working practices.
Consult Red has a flexible, hybrid working policy, and our engineers can normally work well either at home or in the office. Due to the nature of this role, you'll sometimes need to work in the office alongside the IT team and occasionally roll up your sleeves to configure hardware or physically push buttons, so you will need to be able to work from our Shipley, West Yorkshire office for at least two days a week. Occasional travel to our office in Wrocław, Poland is also a possibility.
Desirable Tech Skills:
We believe in moving fast and keeping things simple.
Once you submit your CV, we'll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of details. Your application then goes directly to the Hiring Manager to review. We'll always try to come back to you within a few days.
We'll usually do a short first stage telephone interview. We'll want to set up a longer conversation to find out more if that goes well. Where possible, we'll do a face-to-face interview in our offices so that you can get a better feel for the company and your team. However, we understand the challenges of COVID-19 and have adapted our business to be completely flexible around the current situation. We may do some or all of the interview process over video using Microsoft Teams or GoToMeeting.
However we do it, we want you to leave us with a real feel for the role and a sense of what it's like to work with us, so we're happy to spend quality time answering all of your questions.
