This is your chance to make a global impact in the financial world. Othera is a well funded fintech company that is scaling up to change the fabric of international capital markets with their blockchain powered loan management platform and digital asset exchange.

Othera is tackling the cause of the global financial crisis head on by increasing trust and transparency in the financial services industry. We have already landed high profile finance clients and partnerships and with more in the pipeline, we need your help to deliver our game changing technology. Use your skills, creativity and passion to join us in redefining the financial landscape and bringing greater accountability and transparency to global capital markets.

We don’t like micromanagement but love innovation. We are looking for someone who can demonstrate a blend of independence, team collaboration and a comfort with taking risks.

Job Description

You’re joining at an exciting period, where we are building a production-grade system and you will be instrumental in determining the direction. You will take responsibility for our development team’s efforts in releasing and managing the Othera platform and ecosystem:

  • drive and further improve our continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) environment and process, working closely with our developers and test engineers;
  • setup and manage the cloud infrastructure of Othera. Work with our customers world-wide to deploy our platform and integrate with customer-specific systems;
  • monitor and continuously improve reliability and security of our production environments.

Your Experience (and our tech stack)

  • CI/CD tools (Jenkins, SonarQube)
  • Cloud environments (Azure)
  • Container orchestration (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Infrastructure provisioning (Terraform)
  • Logging and monitoring (ELK stack)

Your Interests and Relevant Background

  • CI/CD tools such as Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, GitLab, etc.
  • Cloud deployments, e.g., AWS, Google Cloud, Azure.
  • Networking and Linux stuff: NGINX, firewalls.
  • Infrastructure provisioning (e.g., Terraform, Ansible, Chef, Puppet).
  • Full-stack development (in our case React, JavaScript frontend and Java microservices). We do have the possibility to grow into a full-stack role.
  • Blockchain experience, especially Ethereum and Corda is a plus, but as the technology is too young to claim expertise, we believe you will learn quick enough.
  • Security; how to fend off the bad guys trying to use our platform.

Your Qualifications

  • You have an engineering degree (BSc or more, PhDs are most welcome), ideally in computer science or equivalent.
  • Proven experience in setting up CI/CD and cloud-based production environments (at least 2 years) with more complexity than just a few VMs.
  • Applicants without a permanent work permit for the Australia will be automatically rejected, sorry.

Othera is a place to thrive and develop new skills and if you can’t find something intriguing to work on and challenge yourself, then we will work to help you unleash your potential.

This is an opportunity to make an impact, have an employee number that will count, to stop being a cog in a wheel and to receive equity options commensurate with your hard work and commitment.

Our Benefits
