Octopus Deploy is one of Australia’s fastest-growing and most successful software companies. Today we help over 150,000 people worldwide to deliver working software to production. If you have a commitment to excellence, a desire to delight customers, and want to be a member of a fast-growing team, you'll love this position.

A typical day might include:

  • Working with the Octopus Cloud team on projects that will either improve reliability or introduce new features to the Octopus Cloud platform.

  • Work closely with other teams to collaborate on changes to Octopus Server.

  • Participate in knowledge sharing to break down silos.

  • Meetings and pairing sessions which drive your work forwards.

  • Problem-solving when collaborating to investigate an incident

You’ll be great for this if:

  • You have deep knowledge of Kubernetes and Azure

  • You have a strong background in Windows and Linux system administration

  • You are experienced in Virtual Networks, Subnets, Load Balancing, and Autoscaling

  • You understand distributed systems

  • You are experienced in Incident Management

  • Coding experience required - C# and/or TypeScript (or equivalent language)

  • Octopus Deploy experience a bonus

You’ll love this role if:

  • You are passionate about working with smart people and providing a high-level of service to our customers.

  • Continuous integration and continuous deployment is your bread and butter.

  • You automate everything because you understand the importance of repeatability and reducing the time to complete complex tasks.

  • Containers are your jam. You containerize all the things!

  • Not afraid to sink your teeth into and solve complex problems.

  • You want to help others grow by sharing your knowledge of systems engineering.


  • Our customers entrust us with one of their most important systems which is why we provide 24/7 support for Octopus Cloud.

  • At the moment we have 7 engineers in the 24/7 On-Call rotation.

  • This means each of us is on-call once every 7 weeks (or ~7 times a year).

  • Each shift is 1 week long. This sounds scary, doesn’t it? In reality it’s not.

  • We average ~2 incidents a week outside of business hours and none of them are major

  • You will get trained before you join the rotation

  • You will always have the ability to reach out to the rest of us if you need help

  • You will support the system you build, not something you’ve never seen before

  • We value our sleep so Production incidents are fixed in a way that prevents them from reoccurring

  • You will be able to ask to swap shifts with other team members This additional responsibility attracts extra compensation.

  • You will get paid AUD $400 for each shift.

  • You will also get paid AUD $200 for each callout outside of business hours, capped to a maximum of 5 callouts per shift.

Interested? We'd love to hear from you. Please include a cover letter outlining what you can bring to the role and how Octopus would be a good fit for you.

We are looking for people who live and work in Australia and New Zealand to join our remote-first team. We are currently unable to provide visa sponsorship.
