The Role

This position is primarily responsible for managing support for AIHW’s Azure platform and DevOps projects, and is proficient in tools for Azure portal management, source control, continuous integration, Infrastructure as Code, containerisation and team management.
You will have a sound understanding of cloud architecture and services and are responsible for providing expert advice with regards to Azure implementations. This role is a technical, services-orientated role that collaborates closely with architects, developers, and on-premises operations staff. This role is responsible for automating and supporting Azure testing, development, administration, and maintenance.
Automation and Integration Engineers are responsible for scripting/automating tasks wherever possible, continuous delivery, configuration management, and the deployment of modules, upgrades and hot fixes within production environments.
Routine maintenance is an ongoing task, therefore, engineers of this discipline are often the same technicians performing second or third level support on systems and applications.

This role has experience with Azure DevOps and GitHub.


  • Identify and automate manual processes for new systems and products.
  • Maintain existing integration and delivery pipelines, ensuring processes are standardised and reused.
  • Provide Infrastructure as Code (IaC) support to all development and production environments.
  • Maintain, configure and develop dynamic containerised environments in support of development and production.  This ranges from greenfield serverless environments to full stack brownfield environments.
  • Reduce the time it takes to build, deploy, and configure software to all environments.
  • Joint owner of all development and release tooling, processes and architecture.
  • Assists in developing application monitoring solutions across cloud and on-prem solutions.
  • Work with development and operations teams to offer automation as a service across domains, products and services.
