As SRE you will be responsible for applying an engineering approach to building and running our production systems – we engineer solutions to operational problems. Our SREs are responsible for overall system operation, we use a breadth of tools and approaches to solve a broad set of problems. Practices such as limiting time spent on operational work, blameless postmortems, proactive identification, and prevention of potential outages are something you will be passionate about.

Our SRE culture of diversity, intellectual curiosity, problem solving and openness is key to its success.  Equifax brings together people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.  We encourage them to collaborate, think big, and take risks in a blame-free environment.  We promote self-direction to work on meaningful projects, while we also strive to build an environment that provides the support and mentorship needed to learn, grow and take pride in our work.

Don’t worry if you’ve not used GCP before as we will provide you with the opportunity to develop your skills, get certified and have hands on training all whilst influencing and supporting the exciting programme of work during this transition in collaboration with international colleagues.

You will be joining energised, supportive, teams who drive a  positive culture immersed in leading-edge technology.
