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

  • 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.
