Job Responsibilities

Who are we looking for?

  • You! No seriously, if you think you have some or all of the below skills or experience then we should really chat:
  • Naturally, you’re an experienced Solutions Architect, who is as comfortable presenting and engaging with execs in a boardroom, as you are talking deep technical implementations with engineers (and everything in between). 
  • You understand that Systems Architecture is so much more than drawing boxes in a diagram!
  • You have experience evaluating new technologies, tools and platforms and assessing their suitability as part of a broader architecture and strategy
  • You are experienced and accomplished at assessing and managing vendor engagements and tools
  • You have a keen understanding of preferably AWS and other cloud-based providers 
  • You have demonstrable experience of building architectures that are loosely coupled, highly extensible, flexible and have security and and agility baked-in 
  • You're familiar with architecture and design patterns (big bonus points if you have experience designing or implementing event-based architectures)
  • You're able to navigate the build vs buy discussion and come back with firm recommendations for either approach
  • You are naturally inquisitive and experimental in your approach. As part of this you are comfortable in building prototypes and proof-of-concepts as part of your evaluation process
  • You know your CRMs from your CDPs from your EDPs and understand the importance, boundaries and roles of each within in modern organisation
  • You are able to tread the fine line between evangelism and pragmatism and are able to use both to recommend and shape an architecture that suits all aspects of our business

 

So, if working with empowered product teams, delivering high quality and innovative solutions to interesting problems, surrounded by like-minded people within an amazing workplace culture is what you're seeking then look no further.

 

As a company, we value our core principles of reliability, simplicity, agility and empathy above all else, and unlike some, we genuinely live and breathe these values. Everything we do, we do with these at the forefront of our minds, and we truly believe that these help set us apart from other employers and help inspire us to make amazing products for our customers. 

What's in it for you?

You'll get the chance to work in an environment that has an enormous appetite for change; a place that truly values and fosters the innovation you can bring to the teams you work with. We try to be as lean as we can, avoiding red-tape, bureaucracy and waterfall wherever possible. We do our best to maintain the 'startup' look and feel, but without the constraints and overheads normally associated with less well established organisations.

We're small enough that your voice will be heard loud and clear and your (awesome) ideas and innovations will be championed and rapidly adopted. And we're large enough that we can execute on these ideas at scale and your work will be used by hundreds of thousands of (happy) customers.

 

But wait, there's more. As well as being an awesome place to innovate, drive change and make a difference, amaysim also tries to be a place that keeps you excited to come in on a Monday morning through all kinds of fun extras, including:

  • an amaysim phone plan (what else??) and a generous subsidy towards a new phone/tablet to use it on
  • an extra day of leave on your birthday
  • paid parental leave
  • covering the costs of your attendance to any and all meetup groups (taxis and time-in-lieu)
  • 'amaysim ideas' sessions several times a month with many external speakers (Facebook, Dropbox and many more)
  • swish offices
  • join the entire company on 'Culture days' (normally at a harbour-side location - Luna Park most recently), to discuss and shape how the company is run
  • a thriving social life, with events happening most months  
  • Free F45 training, yoga & lunchtime sports and many, many others...

 

Salary
Competitive & Negotiable
