Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, we're a completely online company with an ecosystem of sites and services to help people get creative. In September 2014, one of our sites, ThemeForest, was the 90th most visited website in the world and it remains among the most visited Australian-owned website on the planet! With more than 350 staff and contractors worldwide, we've helped a community of creative sellers earn more than $500 Million.
JobAdvisor awarded us the title of Australia's Coolest Company for Women and Diversity (2015 and 2016). We were also named as one of the Best Places to Work in Australia in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 BRW Awards.
On Envato Market thousands of people earn a living selling things like WordPress themes, photos, music tracks and illustrations. With Envato Elements, we oversee one of the world’s largest subscription services for digital creatives, providing hundreds of thousands of files for unlimited download for one flat fee. We offer website design and hosting with Envato Sites. On our education platform Tuts+, over 5 million people learn skills including code, illustration, photography, web design, and more, each month. We also run a freelance marketplace called Envato Studio.
You might be surprised to know that not only do we run some of the biggest websites in the world; we’re also growing really fast!
What we’re looking for
You are comfortable with application development, scripting in various languages, as well as caring about the performance of the applications. You understand the underlying environment that your systems run on and can suggest and make changes. You can build deployment pipelines and integrate monitoring systems, and expect that deployments can happen multiple times a day without issue.
You want to support other teams to do the best work they can in the most efficient way.
You align with the goals of the DevOps movement in improving collaboration between the development and operations disciplines.
What you’ll be doing
We value people who can roll up their sleeves and get things done while keeping the big goals in sight. As a Senior Development Operations Engineer, you'll be part of a team that supports the wider engineering team to ensure the reliability, security and performance of Envato's websites. Here's a snapshot of your day-to-day:

What we offer
The challenge of scale and speed of change
As a Development Operations Engineer, you’ll be working in an environment which is unique in its scale and pace of change in Australia.

Our development team will typically automatically deploy their code changes 15-20 times per day. We are deploying tested software-defined infrastructure updates many times a day.
A great team and culture
