Ops Engineer - Engineering Productivity

Anaplan are looking for exceptional Engineers of all levels and disciplines to join us in our award-winning R&D centres in York, London and San Francisco - working in autonomous Scrum teams with an emphasis on collaboration, innovation and honesty, we’re serious about attracting the best…we have hugely complex technical problems to solve, and offer unrestricted progression, a relaxed working environment, superb packages and much more.

We know how important learning and development are, so we constantly invest in our Engineering team (in excess of 170 people globally and growing by the day) with time and a dedicated budget for self-study, training, events and global conferences - ensuring that whatever you need is always available.  

About Us:
Originally founded in York in 2006 and now headquartered in San Francisco, Anaplan has over 1000 employees in 20 offices, all over the world. In fact, we may just be the most successful company you’ve never heard of!

A genuine “Unicorn”, we’ve developed the most powerful Cloud-based modelling platform on the market. We’re already trusted by hundreds of Fortune 2000 companies and are proud winners of multiple awards, including the best place to work in UK Tech (2016).


About the Team

At Anaplan we want to ensure that all of our engineers get to work in a small team environment no matter how big the company grows. That is very easy to say, but at Anaplan we are putting our money where our mouth is and investing in an Engineering Productivity team. This team will produce the glue that enables individual teams to focus on what’s important to them, and automate away all of the infrastructure work required to move code from developer’s machines into production.

This is DevOps on steroids - the Engineering Productivity team is made up of engineers following their natural instincts to write code to get jobs done. Yes, we work with tools like GitHub, Jenkins, Nexus and AWS, but we don’t use the UI to complete a task, we write a tool - which we can then roll out to our feature teams across the globe. If you like the sound of writing tools for other developers, and being able to really understand your customer (because they are just like you) then this is the role you’ve been looking for.


About You

You will have a strong focus on systems administration, but will view systems maintenance as an engineering occupation and place paramount importance on reproducible changes and infrastructure as code. You will also be passionate about problem solving and collaborative working in a multi-functional team. 

The kinds of technologies we work with are:

  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform, Packer
  • Chef
  • BASH, Python, Go
  • Java, Kotlin
  • APIs for Jenkins, Nexus, Jira, SonarQube, Github
  • Linux, OSX, Windows

Obviously experience with any or all of the above is great, but really we just want people who are keen to help us make great tools for our fellow developers.


We Offer:

  • A rewarding, progressive career with a company that values diversity, flexibility and understands the need for a good work/life balance.
  • Market-leading salaries combined with generous bonuses, equity and a range of comprehensive benefits.
  • Regular agile meetups, events and hackathons (both attending and hosting!)
  • Flexible working, catered lunches, a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of parties & events
  • A range of sports, health and wellbeing initiatives
  • 3 days of paid leave every year to help support the charity or cause of your choice.
  • Trips to our other Engineering offices: San Francisco / London / York
  • The chance to continually help evolve a company already worth over $1.4 billion and one of the top 25 global Cloud Tech companies! (Forbes, 2017)
