The Company
This product development company is a NZ success story.  Started over 20 years ago, they now have offices in the UK, Canada, Australia and the US and the Auckland head office has over 350 employees.  Having been acquired by a multi-national household brand name they now have their sights set on global reach and as such are growing their team.

The Role
One of the key teams within the organisation is the Platform Engineering team.  Their job is to build or enable the build of fit-for-purpose platforms for Development teams across the organisation, allowing them to run robust applications in production and removing the barriers to Continuous Delivery.

  • be able to demonstrate proven experience designing and delivering fit-for-purpose solutions
  • be an outstanding communicator - both written and oral
  • be confident and comfortable interacting with a diverse group of global stakeholders - both technical and business users
This is an outstanding opportunity for someone looking to join a global organisation.  If you are a passionate problem solver and enjoy working collaboratively within an exceptional team, then this is the role for you.

Excellent remuneration package on offer.
