job description

DevOps Engineer

job summary:
Sr. DevOps Build/Release Engineer will support all software builds and deployment pipelines. You will be focused on the transition of a services platform on a traditional (either virtualized or bare-metal) platform to an automated solution (think PAAS) requires a "cloud-enabled" Systems Engineer with strong technical acumen, change management and communications skills. The transition requires thought leadership ensuring that key technology and process imperatives have been thought through and solved before the problem is actually faced. The goal of these efforts is a transformational experience for our product and engineering teams working on the metadata services platform.

The Senior Systems Engineer will be responsible for designing and implementing the tools and methodology to transition a service from a traditional evolutionary platform to an automated platform. This will include (but not limited to) service evaluation, fit analysis, gap analysis, and implementation of the solution. The Senior Systems Engineer will understand the service end-to-end and provide valuable recommendations on the transition roadmap and work alongside the developers, architects, and operators of that service to implement/enable the service on the metadata services platform.
