Job Description

One of our private clients, a large IT service provider, is looking to engage an experienced Cloud Site Reliability Engineer to assist with a large piece of work with one of their Federal Government clients.

Technical Requirements:

    1. CI/CD design and implementation. Using CI/CD is not sufficient. Ideally experience across multiple pipeline tools. Azure DevOps, GitHub preferred. GitLab, AWS CodeCommit/CodeDeploy also ok.
    2. Cloud infrastructure using “immutable infrastructure” patterns.
    3. Infrastructure as Code in a cross platform/multi-cloud way (typically this means Terraform, but there are other options). Things like CloudFormation, ARM, VRealize are not really the same.
    4. Automated configuration management tools: Ansible, Puppet, SaltStack etc.
    5. Azure Public/Stack with at least one of the areas above used on it. I think someone who does Azure without any of those things may not have the right mindset.
    6. Open Source expertise/contribution: actively expressing a preference or, ideally, active contribution to open source projects. While this isn’t necessary, I find it can be correlated with a good understanding of modern delivery practices. I include RedHat products in this category.
    7. Containers/Kubernetes: This is a tough one because there’s a lot of inflation of this experience. Someone with production experience at non-trivial scale is likely worth talking to.

Contract Term: 12 months with possible extension options 
Security Requirements: Must be an Australian Citizen. Due to the work environment, our client has requested that all candidates must hold a current NV1 Security Clearance.
