About the company

This well-known kiwi business based in central Auckland is very much the market leader in their domain and continues to innovate and explore new areas for growth. This enterprise level company is now on the lookout for a DevOps Practice Lead to come on board and head up a DevOps team of engineers and further help develop the technical capabilities of the business.

The Role

As the DevOps Practice Lead, you’ll head up a team of engineers (8 x permanent as well as more with vendors) to establish and deliver DevOps practices and a wide range of infrastructure and toolings to support the business’s engineering teams. Reporting into the Head of Operations, you’ll work with senior managers and stakeholders across the technology teams to provide and produce the vision for DevOps and Release Management practices and carryout technical leadership to define enterprise delivery patterns.

You will strive to provide the engineering teams with highly performant, state-of-the-art Cloud and On-prem solutions, build systems and test automation infrastructure. This is a varied role in which you’ll combine strategic work with short term tactical fixes, contribute to design meetings and extend the CI/CD capabilities.


  • You'll bring significant expertise in DevOps/SRE practices
  • Leadership experience (line management and/or personal development of team members), in or out of a DevOps setting.
  • Strong experience of on/off-prem cloud solutions
  • Strong grasp of container technologies & automation tooling
  • Experience with data management skills
  • Any experience with Java would be ideal but not essential
  • Experience working in a large enterprise environment - banks, insurance, GOV, telco etc.
  • Must be open to mentoring and up-skilling other team members
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills

What are the benefits?

Work within a high performing, innovative enterprise business here in New Zealand. There are endless opportunities for growth and progression. You will be handsomely rewarded with a strong competitive salary and benefits package including medical insurance, strong saving schemes, flexible working, top of the range equipment and much, much more.
