Senior Engineer (DevOps / CloudOps)

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia | Engineering | Full-time | Partially remote


Founded in 2002, Quantium combines the best of human and artificial intelligence to power possibilities for individuals, organisations and society. Our solutions make sense of what has happened and what will, could or should be done to re-shape industries and societies around the needs of the people they serve.


This is a wonderful growth opportunity for a Senior DevOps / CloudOps Engineer to join Australia’s leading data science and AI company. Our world wide reach and industry partnerships mean we can provide truly unique insights and transformational products for our clients.


Our opportunity


Our Product DevOps practice is growing and we are looking for a Senior DevOps / CloudOps Engineer to support the infrastructure development and deployment of our cloud based client products and big data pipelines. As we continue our technology journey to the Cloud and expand to new geographies, we need to create sustainable ways to deploy & manage our product workloads into cloud based platforms. As a devops/cloudops expert you’ll be part of an emerging Product Platform team that will help us accelerate our transition to the cloud for our flagship retail capabilities.


This opportunity will see you embed into our product squads where you’ll be rubbing elbows (because social distancing of course!) with product managers, UX/UI designers, analysts, testers and fellow engineers. You’ll make a positive contribution as a DevOps / Cloud expert who is excited about working across our stack and growing your “T” shape.


Whilst ensuring the CI/CD pipeline is running smoothly day to day may be a given, here are a few other things you’ll master/ contribute to at Quantium:


  • Design tools and processes to manage infrastructure and systems for internal teams and external clients
  • Design and implement infrastructure solutions and automation in Azure
  • Design and implement automation solutions for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment with a specific focus on GitOps and security in the cloud
  • Contribute to the implementation of ephemeral testing environments
  • Assist in the instrumentation of new and existing systems and use metrics to implement robust active and passive monitoring for our big data pipelines and APIs
  • Participate in code reviews and take an active role in ensuring the quality and correctness of work produced by the team
  • Provide support and advice to internal and external stakeholders on DevOps (and Software Engineering) related concerns
  • Mentor more junior team members and contribute positively to team culture
  • Contribute positively to Quantium community initiatives - e.g. assisting other teams with code reviews, writing technical blog posts, providing feedback on solution architecture/design proposals


All of our engineers are polyglots who speak Python, TypeScript, C#, and Scala. Our bread-and-butter is building large scale systems operating on data sets that run the gamut from hundreds of gigabytes to terabytes. There's plenty of room to work on interesting problems at all layers of our technology stack.


We've adopted Kubernetes as the orchestration platform for our core services and product offerings, with CI/CD at the heart of our DevOps practice, and a strategic focus on GitOps to manage our infrastructure moving forward.


Our new team member


Below are a few things we are looking for you to bring to the team.


  • Experience in cloud architecture and cloud networking
  • Experience with infrastructure as code (e.g. Terraform, Ansible, Puppet/Chef)
  • Experience with, or knowledge of, container orchestration systems and containerisation – preferably Kubernetes and Docker
  • Fluency in (at least) one scripting language - e.g. Python, Ruby (experience with .NetCore, Java and/or Scala would be highly regarded)
  • Experience implementing automation using shell scripting (preferably Bash)
  • Experience with continuous integration systems (e.g. Jenkins, Bitbucket Pipelines)
  • Experience instrumenting complex systems and developing metrics to track system health and uptime


You will thrive in a collaborative, team environment and enjoy solving problems and reducing friction for customers and team member.
