Lead DevOps Engineer

Trust Tax and Information reporting Technology team is looking for a Lead DevOps Engineer who contributes to and helps shape the technology strategies, and drives the automation of full DevOps lifecycle. Specifically, you are expected to have excellent technical aptitude in build, configuration management, 'continuous' integration, delivery and deployment. You will join a team responsible for the deployment of our enterprise software solutions, working closely with our globally distributed teams. We are looking for a person who is passionate about technology, passionate about automation, passionate about quality, and truly enjoys what they do. The qualified candidate is someone who has a can-do attitude and is an innovative thinker.

Here are the kinds of skills we are looking for:

  • Engineering Excellence. You have at least 8 years of related experience in a variety of contexts during which you've contributed to the construction of scalable, extensible, software solutions and systems.

  • Bias towards action. You believe that speed and quality aren't mutually exclusive. You've shown good judgment about shipping as fast as possible while still making sure that products are built in a sustainable, responsible way — and you're comfortable making mistakes, provided you learn from them.
