Alamy sells stock images. We have developed a fast and simple online experience for the millions of visitors to our site each month. Our valued customers and contributors need access to our site 24/7 to buy or submit images – we have a collection of over 100 million and counting!

The Role:

To stay ahead of this increasing demand, we need a Systems Administrator / IT Services Engineer to help keep our site quick and available. It’s an exciting and challenging role.

Although we use a variety of technologies, having experience in all of them isn’t the most important thing to us.

We want someone that questions the status quo and wants to learn.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Is excited by things like reliability, speed and automation

  • Isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get involved
  • Knows collaboration is more than just sending an email
  • Seamlessly mixes project work with BAU support
  • Communicates effectively with all colleagues without the jargon

It’d be great, but not essential if you:

  • Have Infrastructure as Code experience
  • Are MCSE/MCITP or AWS certified

  • Option to buy and sell holidays to fit your lifestyle

We want to create a business we can be proud of. To make this happen, we need brilliant people who are passionate and think differently. With a CEO and management team who make fast decisions, we have to be able to keep pace and evolve. At the heart of Alamy are a group of people who care about what we do and doing it really well.
