Senior DevOps Engineer – Kubernetes / AWS / Java


Here at affix, we are selective about who we partner with. We enjoy positioning ourselves as friends to startups and fast moving companies, and every once and while we get to work for companies who are literally taking on the world – and winning! If you love the idea of working for one of Brisbane’s most successful scaleups who are shaking things up on a global scale – then please read on, friend
Who are they?
Launched in 2016, these legends of the e-Commerce world have built a world-first digital platform that has unleashed the potential of online shelf space!
From the very beginning, the Founders knew there was too much leak of digital advertising in the industry. They knew that there was a gap, and they put together an incredible team of tech experts to build a platform that effectively turns online retailer websites into highly targeted and revenue generating digital advertising platforms, and in the process changes the way in which retailers, advertisers and customers manage and experience e-commerce.
They are currently partnered with over 25 of the worlds’ largest retailers, and they are closing in on a lucrative Series A raise later this year. They have already reached more than 100 million customers and 9.5 billion website page views. Pretty cool if you ask me!
Who are we looking for?
This team has been together for a while now and they carry their fair share of battle scars. Startups are dynamic, unpredictable and can be rather stressful. It’s not all about ping pong tables and bean bags, they need somebody who understands this and is resilient enough to roll with the punches from time-to-time. That said, you’ll be responsible for helping scale a world-first platform and you’ll be joining a very bright team of techies. The problems they get to solve are incredibly challenging, and their tech is world-class!
