Dev ops developer


The FinWorks system deploys several instances of a SaaS application in the financial services industry, mainly investments and long term insurance. We are a small company that has built a system over more than 16 years.


This is a full time position that involves management of several server environments, automation of builds and deployments, system security, networking and some operational database administration. Systems run on a linux operating system on self managed server or virtual machine environments, though a combination of container based virtualisation and docker images.


Working with us includes:


  • Work from anywhere with flexible hours (which implies you need a lot of self discipline and strong work ethic)
  • Be part of an experienced team (which means that you need to be inquisitive, be able to explore and enjoy learning; communicate well)
  • Solving difficult problems every day (you must be able to handle complexity, enjoy system design and handle pressure well)


We believe that at least an Honours degree (or 4 year equivalent) with focus on software is an appropriate qualification for this position.


You will work with:


  • Linux (Ubuntu)
  • Docker
  • Nginx
  • GemStone (DB system administration)
  • Scripting in Python, Ruby, bash
  • Git
  • Continuous integration (Jenkins)
  • Configuration management (Chef)
  • Security (eg. firewalls, network)


We have a strong focus on automation and we are working towards moving more services to docker machines.
