If you apply for a general skilled visa with your wife being the main applicant then you won't have any problems in working (I can't see your job on the SOL).
Generally applying for a visa that will give you PR
straightaway is the best option (although it takes a bit longer to get).
Have you looked at the sticky at the top of the forum page (please read...helpful websites..). There's a link to DIAC which gives details on all the visa options and their requirements/restrictions.
