Luke Pritchard


Currently I am employed as a Cloud Engineer at Canstar, Brisbane. Here I am responsible for our Cloud technologies, as well as our automation tools and processes. I tend to work closely and embed myself within development tribes to ensure products being developed follow security best practices, cloud best practices and are as automated as much as possible.

Although I mainly focus on the operational side of technology, I am highly experienced in development practices and tools. My skills as a DevOps engineering complement my skills as a developer by allowing me to seemingly embed myself in development tribes when needed.

Outside of work you’ll often find me camping or 4x4ing. I find it’s often needed to put my computer aside and explore the outdoors with my friends and family.

My Reputation

Aditya Vineet

Aditya Vineet. Cloud Engineer at Canstar.

Luke has an unique mix of excellent problem solving ability and skill set. He is very operational focused and has innovative continuous improvement ideas in his mind all the time. It is an absolute pleasure to work under his direct influence. He is an able mentor with a lot of patience. He would definitely be a great asset for any company he works for.


Ken Reddy

Ken Reddy. Chief Information Officer at Canstar.

Luke was a legend, he came on as a grad and quickly made an impact, he took it upon himself to get his AWS certification and was always his direct line manager’s choice to work on projects with exec exposure because she knew he would represent the team well and get the job done.


Kimberley Manning

Kimberley Manning. Site Reliability Engineer Manager at Canstar.

Luke joined my team as a graduate but quickly became a core member of the SRE team at Canstar during a period of rapid growth. He threw himself into absorbing all he could about AWS & cloud engineering, and it was great to have someone on my team who was so invested in continuing to learn, grow from feedback, and improve our systems. Luke was happy to take on many different projects and one of his greatest strengths was his ability to work with people from across the business, translating business requirements into technical solutions. He was a great asset to our team.
