Open positions

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. The DevOps Engineer supports the delivery of multiple technology solutions, managing the change and release upgrades, facilitating system integration as well as monitor and support system performance. This role is a permanent ongoing role and joins a growing organisation with a great culture.  

Background

We are building a dedicated Australian business bank that finds new, flexible ways to free up cash flow so our customers can do more with their money.

Avenue is seeking to become a fully licensed Australian bank in the next 12 months and is currently applying for its Restricted ADI (‘RADI’) licence. Under the APRA rules, a bank that has been authorised to operate under the RADI regime has two years in which to become a licensed ADI (Authorised Deposit-Taking Institute).

Avenue will initially be focused on a market within business banking, targeting small and medium enterprise (SME) customers. Avenue has a significant opportunity to innovate a largely under-serviced area of business banking.

At Avenue, we believe in the following core values to guide behaviours:

  • Think big: We have an entrepreneurial mindset. A trailblazer with fresh ideas and a passion to change things for the better.

  • Play as one team: We listen, we’re respectful and bring out the best in each other.

  • Do good: We’re fair, ethical and transparent. We earn trust.

  • Find a way: We’re quick on our feet, insightful and adaptable, and believe there’s always a better way.
