Job description

DevOps | Kubernetes | Docker | GCP | Linux

We are searching for a Senior DevOps Engineer to join a talented team of people in an established business that has experienced huge success over the past couple of years and are no going through another period of growth.

You will have the opportunity to work in an Australian home-grown, international technology business with a “start-up” mentality. The business is in a fast growth phase in an emerging new global sector and has already demonstrated it is a leader in its core areas. They have built a great team culture to support each other in achieving both personal and business goals, and there’s lots of opportunity to grow in an innovative and dynamic business like this.

As our ideal candidate, you will be an experienced Devops Engineer / Site Reliability specialist who is currently working for Large organisation with some of the latest Cloud infrastructure environments with GCP; although experience with AWS  would also be advantageous.

Our client is currently using Kubernetes, so exposure to this (And/or Docker) would be beneficial as would monitoring and observability tools such as Prometheus, although we know as our passionate Devops evangelist, you'll be up for learning new tools quickly, anyway.

Aside from the specific tools, we want to hear about your expertise at designing application architecture in a multi-cloud environment and also, how you have applied your software engineering mindset to Sysadmin environments and methods. You will thrive off of working collaboratively with Agile Product Development teams and take immense pride in the Availability, maintainability and performance of your platforms.

This is still very much a hands-on Engineering role, but with the added responsibility (Certainly at 'Lead' level) for mentoring more Junior Devops Engineers. So if you are already working at Senior level, or you're an experienced Mid-Level Devops with aspirations to move into a higher level, then we want to hear from you.
