  • Experience implementing logging, monitoring, tracking and incident management solutions would be useful
  • Understanding of basic Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) concepts, with SRE and operations experience a plus
  • Ability to develop and deliver training to our clients and internal teams. We have a program in place to help you grow your education skills.

You'll work closely with our DevOps Leads in Wellington and Christchurch to help us grow our offerings to the market

You'll get to work with a team that are really passionate about what they do. You’ll gain exposure to different businesses, tools and technical environments.
