Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

Equinox IT is an NZ-owned technical IT consultancy that offers DevOps & Agile, Cloud, and Business Transformation services to help our clients succeed. We do this with a focus on people over process over (technology) platforms, because for us people come first.


We work in highly pragmatic ways, right-sizing approaches to New Zealand conditions, and bringing a fierce determination to deliver excellent results.


We're looking for a Senior DevOps Engineer.


You might be in a role where you're currently doing development and you have learned to automate all your repetitive processes. You might have learned to use Infrastructure-as-Code to eliminate tedious systems configuration. Or you are in a role where you have already learned the value of DevOps and want to build on your existing skills and knowledge.


You’re someone who has the empathy and experience to guide both technical and business stakeholders to help them deliver results. You don’t necessarily need consultancy experience, but you should be comfortable that your experience enables you to effectively work across all levels of an organisation.


The role

As a Senior DevOps Engineer, you will get to focus on the process and tooling aspects of DevOps and Agile by working with our clients' teams. You'll undertake configuration of DevOps tooling and lead teams or individuals through workshops and training sessions.


As part of our team, you'll be given a clear career path, specialist training, a strong commitment to your success and we'll partner you with a coach who can help you reach your goals.


What we are looking for

  • Experience working in a senior technical support role
  • Experience working as a Senior Developer in a DevOps environment, or in another role that enables development teams to adopt DevOps approaches
  • Technical pedigree, with a focus on Microsoft technologies, that is grounded in real-world experience delivering complex technical solutions to meet and business problems
  • Empathy – this is crucial to your success in understanding a client's needs
  • Breadth and depth of hands-on DevOps experience, covering the end-to-end toolchain (e.g. Azure DevOps, Jira, Git, Jenkins, Maven, etc)
  • Understanding of Agile, DevOps, and CI/CD; including automated scripting, scripting, and deployment in highly available environments
  • Agile ways of working (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, Lean, SAFe)
  • Superb communication skills, with a willingness to learn and share knowledge through coaching, mentoring and training.
