About the Team

We bring together talented technical experts to develop the next generation of the Nintex platform and pride ourselves on having a great culture. With our great WFH hybrid model, you’ll have the flexibility to work remotely within SA and/or in the office.

Our Jo-burg office has the best of both worlds; a close-knit and flat structured environment where you can know everyone’s names and all go for lunch, while also being a part of a high-performing global DevOps team and collaborative organisation that embraces new ideas and provides a space for continuous innovation.

About the Role

A role for the big-picture thinker, with their head in the cloud and their feet on the ground. Someone who wants to roll up their sleeves and be part of their team's success – you want to make improvements and feel comfortable sharing ideas. A true collaborator that's all about sharing their knowledge and experience of cloud technologies. 

You could be an expert in Microsoft Azure, or currently immersed in AWS and want to embrace something new. Either way, you'll know your stuff, and bring hands-on expertise in an enterprise-level production environment. 

This is an embedded DevOps position working within a development team to build out capabilities and increasing efficiencies when building and deploying services. You will also be charged with recognizing opportunities to implement best practices that can be leveraged by other teams both here and across the wider organisation.

  • Strong scripting skills – proven abilities to automate manual tasks
  • Team player – able to share and collaborate well with others

What's in it for You

In addition to a competitive salary and benefits package, you'll work alongside supportive colleagues and a leadership team that genuinely cares. We support a safe, inclusive, respectful culture that provides you a sense of belonging. We are supportive of each other’s career journeys to continue learning and growing.
