DevOps Engineer with Author-it

If you’re an intermediate level DevOps Engineer ready to stretch your career and play a key role in the growth of an international tech company, then let’s talk.

There’s never been a better time to join us!

What if you could join an international tech organisation, as they continue to expand? Get on the inside, just in time to play a key part in it all?

Author-it (ASC) is a world leading provider of on-premises and cloud-based products for authoring technical publications, e-learning and pharmaceutical information. Our global ASC team are a diverse, committed group of experts who are progressive in their approach and know what makes a great product.  Our Technology, Product, Sales and Corporate Services teams are based throughout New Zealand, the Netherlands, and the United States.

We’re looking for a driven, passionate DevOps engineer who knows their way around our existing software with their eyes closed and can build and deploy new, intuitive environments that help us help businesses around the world. Sound like you?

You’ll be driven by your desire to diagnose problems and provide solutions. You won’t be thrown when things change (and they do change, often); you’ll get straight into bringing our platforms up to speed. You’ll be experienced with source control (git, branding, pull requests) and will have basic SQL querying skills along with the ability to automate within the CI/CD process and script using PowerShell, Python, Bash or other shell flavours.

And your hands-on experience managing an AWS environment – ideally CloudFormation, DataPipeline, DynamoDB, ECS, EC2, ElasticSearch, IAM, Lambda, RDS or S3 – will be put to good use!

Got ideas? Great. We can’t wait to hear them. We’re after people ready to bring a new spin to the way we do things.

While we’re an international company, New Zealand is our control centre. Across our two local offices we are one cohesive, high-performing team. Being based in ideally the rural splendour of Palmy but potentially the beating heart of Welly, you’ll enjoy the support of a team of people who work hard and work well – every day.

In order to provide support to our customers in a follow-the-sun model you will be required to acknowledge and progress all P1 and P2 customer tickets during your working day and provide a handover to your colleagues. As such this role is part of an on-call rotation from 3pm to midnight.

Now is the time – join us for this exciting ride!


This role is being managed by HainesAttract – All applicants must have the legal right to work in New Zealand.
