Senior Software Engineer, Cloud Runtimes

Software engineers on our Cloud Runtimes team embody the mindsets of “Infrastructure as Code” and a “Devops Culture.” Your objective is simply stated but extremely challenging: provide our engineering staff with Platform-as-a-Service offerings that allow them to be self-sufficient, productive, and focus on business impact. You are someone who wants development processes to be transparent and have fast feedback loops, with continuous integration and delivery as the foundation. You strive to give teams complete ownership of their code, all the way into production by ensuring they have the visibility and tools needed to make effective, continual change. You will standardize our platforms into immutable artifacts (containers) which can be reproduced at-will and at-scale. Your days will be heavily collaborative with our Operations and Engineering teams to understand and deliver on their needs.
If you want to be part of a small and impactful team, enjoy collaborating, thrive on building and maintaining highly-scalable critical systems, and have passion and tenacity for tackling complex problems, this is a great opportunity
