DevOps Engineer, Data Science & Artificial Intelligence Division (DSAID)


The Government Technology Agency (GovTech) aims to transform the delivery of Government digital services by taking an "outside-in" view, putting citizens and businesses at the heart of everything we do. We also develop the Smart Nation infrastructure and applications and facilitate collaboration with citizens and businesses to co-develop technologies.
Join us as we support Singapore’s vision of building a Smart Nation - a nation of possibilities empowered through info-communications technology and related engineering.
How we work:
Design for citizens — Listening to our users is the best starting point for building great solutions. To understand pain points faced by Singaporeans, we test and iterate relentlessly.
Go far, go together — Building a great product is a good start, but we usually set our sights higher. In order to make a lasting impact on how the government builds products, we partner closely with various agencies to improve capabilities across the government.
Engineer with care — We value products that last, so investing in maintainable systems and clean code is important to us. From inception to delivery, we accelerate the process with open source libraries, modern technologies, CI/CD and DevOps practices.
Inclusive products, inclusive teams — We build for everyone, and prioritise accessibility. Inclusive products start with inclusive teams. As such, we take pride in creating a supportive environment where every individual can flourish.
