Working with support lead, the backend development team and system administrator you'll ensure that developers can start working on new projects quickly, environments can be spun up and torn down with ease, and deployments to production are quick, smooth and reliable.

- Improve and optimise existing system infrastructure
- Implement best-practice access control and system security
- Work with development teams to identify and resolve uptime, performance and scalability issues
- Communicate with multi-disciplinary internal and external teams
- Take ownership of problems and get stuff done
- Stay up to date with the latest technology developments and be prepared to present them internally and to clients
