About Us

We’re MMT Digital. We create digital solutions that transform business performance.

We’re strategists, analysts, problem solvers, creators, originators, designers and builders – we’re digital visionaries. We get to the what, why and how of game-changing digital solutions that transform business performance.

We adopt a single team approach to build powerful and transparent relationships with our clients. We’re agile, enabling the delivery of our clients’ digital solutions, fast. We’re winners, consistently picking up recognition wherever we go, especially at The Drum Recommended Digital Agency Awards.

We’re a team with an itch for knowledge and continuous improvement. We’re a group of people with a burning desire to show how digital can transform business performance. We’re energetic, engaged, collaborative, calm, reliable, smart and friendly. We’re also a very sociable bunch.

When you read through our job advert, remember that we are more interested in you as a person than a checklist on your CV! If you feel there are skills we’re asking for that you don’t have yet, but have the passion and commitment to develop, we'd love for you to tell us about how you’re devoted to digital!

About The Role

This is where you come in, we’re looking for forward thinking people to help us create amazing things! 

DevOps is the set-up, management and configuration of infrastructure, deployment and build processes. Using traditional hosting through to more modern methods, you’ll be supporting the networking and infrastructure of ongoing projects as well as diagnosing and fixing build pipeline issues. You’ll be responsible for looking after the service desk – which will include dealing with access requests, database backups and sites going down. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn with some of the industry’s best DevOps Engineers – including one of the world’s 5000 AWS Cloud Architects. 

As we are a Digital Agency you’ll have the benefit of working on a variety of projects – no two days are the same! We have a helpful and open working environment and team, which means that you can easily have conversations and sit-downs with managers across all levels for support and advice. 

We also ensure you’re on the frontline, speaking and interacting with clients. 

Students on placement with us often come back and work with us full-time, straight out of University - we really set you up for a career after Graduation! 

One such success story is of our current CTO (Chief Technical Officer) Mark Starling, he joined as you will be and in a matter of 10 years he worked his way up to CTO! 

Here at MMT Digital we aren’t as corporate as some companies, we know that people thrive in a fun working environment – so that’s just what we’ve created!
