Sydney
DevOps Engineer

The Technology team at Avenue is embarking on an exciting journey building an Australian business bank. Our focus will be on configuring off-the-shelf, software as a service (SaaS) solutions. The DevOps team, reporting to the Digital & Integration Architect, is pivotal in delivering the Avenue technology platform in a timely manner whilst meeting the business requirements and aligned to the finance industry and regulator’s standards.

This role is a permanent ongoing role and joins a growing organisation with a great culture.
