Lead Consultant, Infrastructure Developer

Sydney, Australia

How would you make your mark if you knew you could influence beyond your current projects?

As consultants, we work with our clients to ensure we’re evolving their technology and empowering adaptive mindsets to meet their business goals. 

Lead Developers act as the primary point of contact for our clients, ensuring that teams are successful in their delivery. As a Lead Developer, you will bring a strategic mindset to projects and spend time negotiating with clients in order to bring a technical vision to life. Having a balance of high-level and tactical mindsets is a must, as you will spend time both with clients and alongside your fellow teammates. 

Infrastructure Developers at Thoughtworks take a multifaceted approach to helping clients achieve technical excellence by approaching challenges from both a technical and operational perspective. 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • You will launch projects through hands-on implementation, evaluate and drive improvements to existing infrastructure;
  • You will listen to a client’s needs and formulate a technical roadmap and impactful solution that will support their ambitious business goals;
  • Help shape and build Thoughtworks’ cloud and infrastructure practice through collaboration with business development, marketing, and capabilities development teams;
  • Ensure and build the controls and processes for continuous delivery of applications, considering all stages of the process and its automations;
  • Monitor and ensure that technical expectations of deliverables are consistently met on projects;
  • Act as a thought leader—at client sites and at Thoughtworks—on DevOps, cloud, and infrastructure engineering;
  • Establish trusting and thoughtful partnerships with a client’s CIO, CTO, and relevant teams;
  • Adjust and suggest innovative solutions to current constraints and business policies;
  • Develop your career outside of the confinements of a traditional career path by focusing on what you’re passionate about rather than a predetermined one-size-fits-all plan.


Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • You genuinely enjoy interacting with teammates from across the business and have a knack for communicating technical concepts to nontechnical audiences
  • You love creating robust, scalable, flexible, and relevant solutions that help transform businesses and industries
  • You’re comfortable partnering directly with leadership teams (CTO/CIO/COO) to design technical strategies while simultaneously collaborating with senior IT groups in an advisory capacity
  • You can design and architect enterprise and/or web-scale hosting platforms and can seamlessly administer application servers, web servers, and databases
  • You have a deep understanding of cloud and virtualization platforms, infrastructure automation, and application hosting technologies
  • You regularly apply DevOps philosophy, Agile methods, Infrastructure as Code to your work and lead infrastructure and operations with these approaches
  • You have a history working with server virtualisation,  IaaS and PaaS cloud,  Infrastructure provisioning, and configuration management tools 
  • You can write scripts using at least one scripting language and are comfortable with building Linux and/or Windows servers systems
  • Experience with continuous integration tools with different tech stacks, web or mobile
  • You’ve previously worked with monitoring systems for stress and performance testing with Observability Pattern: Distributed Tracing/ OpenTracing, Log Aggregation, Audit Logging, Exception Tracking, Health Check API, Application MetricS, Self-Healing/Multi-Cloud
  • Bonus points if you have experience with unit testing and automated testing tools
