Job Description

Our Federal Government Client is seeking an experienced Azure Automation Engineer for their Azure platform and DevOps projects.

This is a long-term contract role for 6 months with extension options. Selected candidate must be willing to work full-time in their Canberra office.

Our client is looking for someone who is proficient in tools for Azure portal management, source control, continuous integration, Infrastructure as Code, containerisation and team management.

You 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 a technical, services-orientated role that collaborates closely with architects, developers, and on-premises operations staff. 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. Their primary functions cross and merge the barriers that exist between traditional software development, testing and operations teams and keep existing networks in mind as they design, plan and test. This role has experience with Azure DevOps and GitHub.

To be successful in this role, you should have:

  • Experience creating Azure DevOps pipelines that use Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tooling (Azure ARM) to automate system deployments.
  • Experience implementing CI/CD best practices and tooling
  • Experience in developing and amending templates in Infrastructure as Code (IaC) deployments to meet application requirements.
  • Experience in maintaining, supporting, and securing Azure infrastructure and services.

Due to security clearance requirements for this role, candidates must be Australian Citizens who currently possess or have the ability to obtain Federal Government Security Clearances.
