We are UKFast.
Over the past two decades, we have grown from a start-up to a multi-million-pound business. We are one of the UK’s leading cloud and secure managed hosting providers - supplying dedicated servers, private and public cloud hosting solutions, and a full range of technical, cybersecurity, and DevOps consulting services. We’re moving fast, continuously innovating and having a lot of fun in the process.
We transform our customers’ businesses through robust technology, world-class solution engineering, and multi-award-winning customer service.
We design, build and support thousands of technical solutions every year for a full cross-section of the UK economy, from local businesses and charities to fast-growing eCommerce and financial services businesses, global manufacturers and retailers, local and central Government, the NHS and the Ministry of Defence - all seeking new and innovative ways of hosting their IT solutions.
Our business is built entirely around our people and our customers. We invest in our people and work hard to ensure our teams are inspired, motivated and supported. We are customer-obsessive and committed to self-development, hard work and having fun. We believe in everyone bringing their whole self to work as part of our fantastic bunch.
Our in-house training facility is widely accredited. For instance, we are the only managed service provider in the UK to be an accredited AWS training centre.
We care passionately about doing the right thing - for our customers and each other. It’s important to us that UKFast is a diverse, inclusive and socially-conscious employer that contributes positively to our communities and environment. For instance, we have been Carbon neutral for many years.

2020 was a hugely transformational year for our business with a large investment from the leading mid-market private equity firm Inflexion. Our hard work, dedication, and team spirit during such a turbulent year have propelled us into 2021 with a highly confident outlook for a successful year ahead.
Integral to our plans is becoming the best market provider in truly Hybrid Cloud solutions and the fundamental redesign of both our core network infrastructure and eCloud, UKFast’s own private cloud product. These large-scale projects have led us to the search for a Senior Network Engineer to join us on our unique business transformation.
Working closely with UKFast’s infrastructure teams and reporting into the Network Team Leader, you will have ownership of network project conception and implementation. You will work as a senior technical figure on a wide range of critical network infrastructure projects, working alongside network architects to deliver projects on time and to the project brief. In addition to this you will act as a Senior member of the wider networks team, providing the team with a technical escalation point and acting as a mentor to other network engineers in the team.
The opportunity to improve the way both you and we do things is plentiful in this role as both continuous innovation and technical optimisation of network infrastructure is top priority. This is an ideal opportunity for an individual who thrives in a lean, collaborative, and fast-paced environment. A network evangelist who is driven to deliver high quality network infrastructure to contribute to both improved platform stability and business growth.
