x15ventures - Senior Engineer, New Venture


Sydney, Remote

Full Time


* You’re a Senior Systems Engineer, skilled in Azure.

* You’re all in on a DevSecOps approach to engineering.

* You’re ready to co-lead the design and build of a new venture’s cloud infrastructure and business systems.

Let’s start by introducing ourselves

Hi, we’re an exciting new venture backed by x15ventures.

We’re here to shake things up with a new fintech launching next year, backed by CommBank.

Where do you fit in?

We’re an tech-first team with a big vision to give Australians a better deal in an important financial category.

Our tech stack is super modern (Azure infrastructure-as-code, GraphQL APIs, React Native app). We value clarity of thought (simple is beautiful!), leverage (patterns and frameworks FTW), and clean well-tested code that enables a DevSecOps way of shipping change quickly and safely.

We’re nominally based in CommBank’s amazing new facilities at South Eveleigh, but most of us work remotely and we have a remote-first culture (fully async).

You’ll be reporting directly to the CTO, and will be a key leader within a growing engineering team – helping to shape the goals and culture of this exciting venture. Key parts of the role include:

Evolving our DevSecOps practices for shipping quickly and safely. Developing microservices to power our customer experience and business systems. Designing and implementing an Azure-native approach to monitoring and security. Helping to evolve our line-of-business and financial systems.

The real question: what’s in it for you?

There’s nothing worse than a job where it’s Groundhog Day. Where you don’t feel challenged, or pushed to be your best. Where you’re stuck in a role where there’s no growth. Working on things you don’t really care about.

Here, we promise challenge in spades. Intellectual stretch. Growth, learning and development – every day. Working with a modern tech stack and forward-thinking engineers. Working side by side with leadership, making big decisions, and solving important challenges in this tech-centric venture.

But there will be uncertainty. And that will lead to some high pressure situations, where you, your work and your actions are highly visible. And that’s exciting, right? We hope you think so. But we also hope you recognise, that day in and day out, you’re working in a high visibility environment. So you’ll need to be resilient.

Are you a perfect match?

You have experience with Microsoft Azure. Event-based processing (Azure Event Grid, Azure Functions) is your bread and butter. You’re familiar with Typescript, and comfortable writing code. You know what great DevSecOps should look like, and how to create a secure and automated pipeline to make it happen. You may have already played with AKS, ACI and KEDA; and worked with SQL-based data.have experience with Kubernetes, NodeJS (Typescript of course!) and SQL Database. You may have had some front-end experience using ReactJS, ReactNative, NextJS or other frontend framework. You may have heard of GraphQL or be interested in learning more. Something to keep in mind

We offer flexible work options to support your emotional and mental well-being in the role. An inclusive team culture that promotes collaboration and innovation at their core Amazing development and career progression programs to help you grow! PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Christmas shutdown we will be reviewing the CV's from the 11th January 2021.

If you're already part of the Commonwealth Bank Group (including Bankwest), you'll need to apply through Sidekick to submit a valid application. We’re keen to support you with the next step in your career.
