CGI UK Careers - Be Part of Our Story


Position Description:

CGI is expanding our team of Open Source Integration Engineers. If you have a solid Linux foundation and an enthusiasm for technology, we’d love you to join us. We develop, build, and run a cutting edge Big Data platform for a meaningful and strategic client. We’re heavy on automation, great software engineering hardware, a mix of physical and virtual platforms and taking on steep learning curves. We’re delivering to our customer faster than they’ve experienced before. We’re motivated to improve the state of the art, for our customer, and for other engineers or consumers working on similar systems.


The team’s focus is a shared ownership and drive to achieve the customer’s goals. We aim for everyone to be involved in software integration, testing, deployment and operations. We all have direct contact with our customer on a daily basis. The team can ask questions directly to ensure they build what is really needed. Each of us takes ownership of a customer ‘story’ from beginning to end. If you are interested in technology integration (as opposed to developing from the ground up), rapid prototyping, regular demonstration of completed work, creating sustainable systems, and thinking ahead but not overcomplicating for today, this will suit you.

This role is based out of our Reading office. Due to the secure nature of the project work, this position will require time on site.

All applicants must hold or be prepared to undergo National Security Vetting (NSV) Security Check (SC) level"

• GNU/Linux software customisation, configuration and integration

• Robot Framework and Selenium based test automation for post-build and post-deploy health checks
• Bug and technical debt triage, trouble shooting and resolution
• Production environment change back-porting to our Git repository
• Enhancement of our Bamboo based build and continuous integration processes
• System performance analysis and improvement of multiple, high spec large clusters
• Third line support of production environments with our system administrators

Your future duties and responsibilities:

You will be part of a team which is jointly responsible for designing, integrating, building, testing, maintenance and on-going operations of the production platform. The ideal candidate for the Integration Engineer role will have attributes in the following areas:

• Estimation and commitment, as a team, to deliver tested work every 2 weeks
• Development of work following strict ways of working, standards and levels of quality
• Regular presentation of progress and completed work to the team and the customer
• Stay up to date by following industry developments and be active in the Open Source community
• A drive to meet your personal objectives which are aligned to the business plan for the financial year
• Investment in your own skills development with support from the team and wider organisation
