Cloud Engineer

  • Arq Group
  • Melbourne VIC, Australia

Job Description

Arq Group are Australia’s leading experts in Mobile, Data & Analytics and Cloud, which means we are capable of defining, designing and creating products that solve problems on a large scale. We design platforms that scale across millions of customer, and products that engage across multiple channels.

We are looking for Cloud Engineers to join our Cloud Solutions Practice in Melbourne to work directly with our customer’s teams to solve their business challenges, enabling them to use technology more intelligently and leverage long term value from their investments.  You will bring expertise in automation, infrastructure as code and DevOps culture , and will be contributing to the design and build of solutions.

What you get to do:

  • Automate solutions to scale and self-heal, speeding innovation, reducing development time and supporting costs and effort.
  • Improving our automation. We hate doing repetitive boring tasks and strive to spend our time doing fun and exciting things instead. You’ll be expected to improve our existing automation infrastructure and making machines do the boring stuff. You’ll be writing Chef cookbooks and recipes, testing them, getting feedback from your peers and our customers and deploy to production.
  • Building services for our team. One of the primary drivers of our group is to enable the Cloud Practice to be more awesome for our customers. So you’ll improve our existing services, make them scale, make them more reliable. You’ll also build new services when you see an opportunity to help your colleagues.

You will support and be actively involved in the development of frameworks, best practices and patterns, and be a facilitator and moderator of future collaborative team work.
  • There’s no throwing problems over the wall around here. Everyone brings a different vantage and expertise to the problems we see, expect to over-communicate and not be afraid to jump on a call or walk down the hall to talk face to face during a problem solving session. The Cloud Engineer works to an on-call schedule and builds solutions to minimise maintenance and support.

  • Business Acumen – Ability to gain the respect of not only peers, but also business management. Understanding of business requirements and processes as they related to cloud architecture.
  • General Management/Leadership – Recognized as a person able to inspire others through conviction, vision, and the ability to formulate and articulate direction in the area of solution development.
