The Role
Outstanding opportunity for a driven professional to join a government department in an IT capacity. A passionate, driven professional with a positive attitude and a strong desire to succeed. The department is seeking an experienced Azure Automation Engineer to be responsible for managing support for the department’s Azure platform and DevOps projects, and is proficient in tools for Azure portal management, source control, continuous integration, Infrastructure as Code, containerisation and team management.

The ideal candidate will have a sound understanding of cloud architecture and services and are responsible for providing expert advice with regards to Azure implementations.

This role is responsible for automating and supporting Azure testing, development, administration, and maintenance.

Automation and Integration Engineers are responsible for scripting/automating tasks wherever possible, continuous delivery, configuration management, and the deployment of modules, upgrades and hot fixes within production environments.

Routine maintenance is an ongoing task, therefore, engineers of this discipline are often the same technicians performing second or third level support on systems and applications.

  • Reduce the time it takes to build, deploy, and configure software to all environments.
  • Joint owner of all development and release tooling, processes and architecture.
  • Assists in developing application monitoring solutions across cloud and on-prem solutions.
