Full Time role

Position Overview

We are looking for the right candidate to join the Software Engineering Team and help shape the way our teams develop, deploy and maintain software and provide them with the tools and support they require to meet our vision.

Aviva Canada’s IT team is starting to evolve. As a large, tightly regulated and security conscious company, we have to date been a waterfall-style shop.  With recent changes in IT team leadership, and the opening of our Digital Garage in downtown Toronto, we are beginning to make some serious changes in the development and operations stack.  We’re moving out of a traditionally-managed data center into AWS, with a focus on automation and infrastructure as code.  We’ve introduced the backbone of a CI/CD toolset (Bitbucket, Nexus, Jenkins cluster) and are rolling out Docker and Kubernetes to selected projects.  We’re using modern tools like Packer, Terraform, Vault, Ansible, ELK, Prometheus, and others.

There is a lot of change happening, and we are looking to engage the entire company – devs, infra, operations, software engineers, QA, security, audit, and the business. The Software Engineering and DevOps team is a key part of successfully introducing a real DevSecOps culture for the organization, so that the people can continually grow and work in a world-class environment, and make the team and business successful.

The Person

We are looking for a smart and engaged senior Software Engineer with a strong interest in the full Dev and Operations lifecycle (DevOps) to raise our level of software engineering excellence, both for projects and for infrastructure as code, and to contribute to our company’s overall transformation.

You will be part of a core team of seasoned software engineering professionals who will design and roll out tools and processes to continually improve all teams in all areas of software development: architecture, source code control, automated testing, CI/CD, artifact management, and code quality and security. You’ll also contribute to our move to containers and to the cloud.

You’ll sustain our culture of continuous improvement both from a process and technical perspective. You will have a good knowledge of internet operations and technologies and a desire to create scalable, reusable solutions as part of an Agile team.


As hinted at in the Background section above, the duties and skills required are varied, as we’re redesigning the development and operations stack.

•Working with a team of technical experts to operationalize and improve the dev and CI/CD tools that we use (Bitbucket, Nexus, Jenkins 2.x, AWS, Hashicorp Vault, Docker, Kubernetes/Helm, etc.)

•Work with DevOps experts to roll out modern security/ops tools (AppDynamics, Prometheus, Aquasec, Kubernetes, etc.)

•Work with project teams to roll out our dev and CI/CD tools, and promote effective agile dev practices across the org (12-factor app design, containerization, TDD, automation, etc.)

•Impart your technical expertise to development teams

•Fostering team spirit and collaboration within your team

Required Qualifications, Knowledge, & Skills

•Hands-on development experience in a variety of languages (e.g. Java, Node.js, .Net), including an understanding of software design principles and techniques (12-factor, TDD, etc.)

•Demonstrated experience with the techniques and tools for continuous delivery: effective source code management, app configuration management, artifact management, automated build/test/delivery pipelines, and environment management

•Experience with containers and orchestration

•Linux OS knowledge

•Experience in using and supporting monitoring tools, frameworks and processes
