DevOps is the next big thing in the development world. The ability to automatically upload code to the cloud is vital in the modern development cycle. You'll be at the forefront of this revolutionary advancement that's transforming what businesses can do - so you'll be in-demand.

Every day you'll use specialised technology to power organisations into the future - helping them automate processes to become super streamlined.

Although this role is advertised with a specific location you would need to be geographically flexible and willing to relocate anywhere in the UK.

  • Your career in digital consulting
    After your training you'll work with one of our customers on their site - anywhere in the country.
  • Push yourself and your career further
    Learning with QA doesn't stop after 12 weeks. We encourage you to continually learn and challenge yourself technically - so you can fulfil your potential.

The perks

  • Free accommodation or a monthly bursary to help you relocate to Manchester's technology hub - MediaCityUK - during your training
  • Industry-recognised certifications to boost your employability and promotability
  • Competitive salary of £23,500 post-training (if you're based in London this will increase to £26,500)
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Regular social events (like technical talks and hackathons)
  • Continued support to help you fulfil your potential - you'll keep advancing your technical skills throughout your career with QA

What's the job like

As a technology consultant at QA, you'll empower our customers to develop and support DevOps - so they can be self-sufficient adopters.

You'll bring your technical expertise to the customer, wherever they are. You'll help them to develop and maintain cutting-edge DevOps solutions, so they remain competitive.


  • Automate software integration and deployment, typically hosted in cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
  • Have outstanding knowledge of software development, agile practices and automation.
  • Work in the space between software developers and IT operations teams, getting new software operational and usable for the end-user.
  • Work in agile teams delivering working software to our customers in a two-week cycle.
  • Perfect your consulting skills to a high standard and professional level, ready to work with our prestigious customers.

What we need from you
