Engineer in Test

  • Full-time
  • Work Arrangement: Permanent

Company Description

  • Work on titles consumed by millions of Australians
  • Awesome location, motivated team
  • Brand new, world-leading tech stack

At Nine, we're reinventing how the country consumes news, across our digital web and mobile app properties such as the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age & The Australian Financial Review.

Our entirely cloud-first tech stack was built from the ground up around two years ago, with a fully automated, Slack integrated CI/CD DevOps environment and we need more engineers to take it to the next level.

Are you are looking for a driven, diverse and collaborative work environment? Would you like to work with amazingly talented colleagues in a business with the scale of a major media company? We'd love to talk with you, so apply today.

This is a permanent full time role based in Sydney.

Job Description

In this role, your time will be spent shifting left. You'll be working as part of an agile squad, guiding engineers towards continuous delivery and quality best practice.

We're looking for a person

  • With proven engineering skills
  • Who can utilise their technical and automation skills to get things done
  • With a strong quality mindset
  • Who believes in shifting quality left, using their influence and persuasion to bring the team along
  • With excellent analytical skills
  • That is self-starting, has a desire to learn, and be the quality advocate for the team

Additional Information

Above all else, we really like working with people who have a strong, positive learning attitude. So if this role sounds good, but you feel you might need to catch up on some skills, we'd still love for you to apply. Skills can be learned, attitude is everything.
