About the Role
We are looking for experienced Cloud Engineers to join our Brisbane & Melbourne teams at a key time in our transformation journey.  You will be responsible for taking our AWS transition to the next level, working with Agile product squads to build out best practice Serverless / Compute solutions as well as selecting / developing componentry to speed development and reduce risk.

  • Champion the adoption of AWS Serverless & Containerisation solutions by engaging with product squads (preferably by pairing);
  • Champion best practice, defining, documenting and sharing in a collaborative manner;
  • Collaborate with squads to drive change, understanding that all of the value delivered is via the changes in squad behaviour and squad built solutions;
  • Identify appropriate implementation patterns, document and share with squads to ease uptake while delivering best practice solutions;
  • Develop solutions to minimise the time to implement for squads, automating tasks, collecting metrics and minimising cycle time / speeding up feedback loops;
  • Develop or select components that support architectural transformation (microservices, microlith, etc.) while incrementally removing dependency on legacy platforms (Dynamics CRM);
  • Deliver “just enough” design (including coaching others to improve their designs), plotting a path to maximise value delivered while continually improving solutions;
  • Develop high-quality DevOps friendly platform components that bake in scalability, fault tolerance and security;
  • Develop new capabilities within the business by providing solutions for Serverless, Containerisation and Environment Refresh;
  • Live by the mantra “you build it, you run it”; and
  • Work with the architecture function to ensure solutions are consistent with architectural patterns, standards and practices that are developed to support solution delivery.
We'd love to hear from you if:
You are a passionate self-motivated individual who enjoys working with people to create positive change, with prior experience in both deeply technical roles and consulting or training roles; along with the following:
  • Demonstrated experience implementing AWS Serverless and Containerisation solutions as part of large scale system development;
  • Demonstrated experience acting as a change agent, peering with others to change their operating practices and to influence broad communities of technical experts, regardless of reporting lines;
  • Demonstrated experience with full stack development (7+ years) including mastery of c# and familiarisation with a variety of development languages and frameworks, preferably including JavaScript, python & html;
  • Demonstrated understanding of modern operational paradigms and how they can be leveraged;
  • Experience with Containerisation and Kubernetes;
  • Experience with AWS security and security best practice;
  • A skill for debugging systems without a full understanding of their operations, with a focus on resolving the root cause of the issue rather than the current symptom;
  • Honed Stakeholder management skills and the ability to adapt, manage and work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds;
  • Demonstrated success driving process and technical improvements through collaboration with teams by wining hearts and minds as well as illustrating that the recommend approach provides the best outcome;
  • Ability to work with complexity and ambiguity and resilience on striving for goals.
