Qualifications

Attributes – About you

You are methodical and you demonstrate exquisite attention to detail in your approach to solving problems and delivering work products.

You will always do the right thing, not necessarily the easy thing. You take accountability for outcomes, and you are generous in your actions and outputs. You tackle problems with independent and critical thought and you never stop caring about the work products you create. If you build it, you help support it. If you break it you help fix it.

You work well in an environment where you can be proactive and pick up and work on whatever tasks need to be completed to fulfil the goals of the team and the projects to which you are assigned. You are self-directed and don’t tend to wait for management direction if you can see what needs to be done. You take end-to-end ownership of an outcome and follow up with everyone who needs to be involved in creating that outcome.

Finally, you are on board with our team’s core tenets for building and operating ICT Services. Everything you build and touch should be secure, consistent, repeatable, and scalable.
