Position Details

We are building an inclusive workplace to help realise the potential of our employees, embrace our differences, and apply our diverse thinking to innovation and delivering services to Victorian communities. All jobs can be worked flexibly and we encourage job applications from Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, young people and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

The Technology Solutions Unit is responsible for the development, maintenance and support of information systems that meet the fire and emergency management requirements of the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP).   The position will be responsible for development, deployment and testing of new and existing systems.

The Software Engineer – Emergency Management Systems will form part of the core development capability of the Technology Solutions Unit (TSU). The role is situated in a small team responsible for the development of the Emergency Management Systems including desktop, web service and web application components.

The successful candidate will be required to have proven skills in modern web application frameworks (Angular 6+, Bootstrap)., as well as experience working in a true Scrum development environment and a strong understanding of Agile principles and values.

Technologies used in the unit include Microsoft.Net Core (C#) ASP.Net, Angular 6+ and Microsoft SQL Server. The team follows agile and devOps principles and utilises Github, Jenkins, Chef and Docker in the CI, build and deployment pipeline.

If you are looking to have your good ideas heard, recognised and implemented then this role is for you! The role has a great deal of autonomy – the development team is trusted to make key technology decisions collaboratively with light architectural oversight. Whilst you are working on the main project you will also have opportunity to contribute your ideas and work on shared components utilised across our emergency management systems.

Even though you will be a very switched on Programmer / Engineer, you will not be working in isolation therefore having a collaborative approach to your work will see you succeed in this role. Not only will you need to be happy to engage with others, you actually engage with ease – it is not hard work for you - you get along well with people.

You can hit the ground running and support the design, build and maintenance of the Emergency Management Systems; you are very good at communicating identified technical solutions for business requirements.  All that you do will be underpinned by your exceptional communication skills along with your volumes of emotional intelligence.

There are 2 positions available for a period of 6 months.

To be considered for this position, your application should include a supporting statement demonstrating that you meet the key selection criteria and any job requirements specified in the position description.
