- Discover, understand and map existing software development life cycles (SDLC) processes and deliver automated paths to production for transformed existing applications.
- Continuously learn and be at the leading edge of Tanzu and industry trends.
- You will also work closely with the VMware Tanzu engineering teams to provide feedback on - and contributions to - community projects (like Spring and Steeltoe) and frameworks built by the Tanzu team that continuously strive to improve developer experience
