REQ ID: 34271
JOB TITLE: DevOps Engineer
SALARY: £36,300 - £45,100
POSTING END DATE: 18.04.2019
Dreaming for tomorrow is about more than ideas and ambitions. We’re already building the next generation of vehicles, using repurposed and brand-new technology and techniques. We’re doing more than dream, we’re creating the future of mobility and automotive for years to come.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Our team is in place to improve the user experience across a range of features within the company product offerings. This involves expanding the supply base to work with consumer electronics, apps and web concepts. An essential part of delivering an interconnected experience for vehicles is the efficient and robustness of build, and release strategy including continuous integration created by DevOps Engineers.
You’ll design and implement software systems to meet desired user experience, functional, and security requirements and rapidly iterate and develop concepts on mobile platforms. You’ll handle cross company Proof of Concept delivery for interconnected mobile infotainment features whilst working with open source communities, collaborating partner companies and external suppliers to create new concepts.
Delivering the latest concepts require a robust and efficient continuous integration and validation system. This includes managing automated build/release, automated deployment, and automated testing. The agile DevOps Engineer strives to automate most of the software development life cycle process in order to proactively identify gaps that exist in the path to production. Help us write software that helps others write better software.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
We need someone who can determine if the infrastructure is balanced or unbalanced and where improvements can be made, how the system works but also how it’s structured and developed. Experience with either Terraform, Ansible and Docker is essential as is AWS cloud management and a proven ability in creating cloud based system using Infrastructure as Code. Other essential experience would include GIT/CI Pipelines, Workflows and Bash as well as the ability to write scripts in Python or Perl to automate SW build activities.
You’ll establish and maintain an automated path to production from code committing to vehicle. Day to day you’ll develop and debug build, deploy, and test related issues. You’ll need to develop automated software tools and utilities to improve the developer ramp up process and support a rapid release strategy across all dependencies. You’ll create and maintain software which allows developers to focus more on developing rather than infrastructure activities.
You should have worked with outside suppliers/vendors and have experience in developing and integrating large scale software systems. You’ll deliver technical products through a team, utilising strong people management skills. You’ll work as part of a global company interacting with colleagues around the world from Portland US, Shannon and India.
You’ll have a proven ability to manage senior stakeholders, to communicate complex ideas and engage at all levels with the ability to challenge existing thinking in a positive way whilst building credibility and trust through experience and personal style. Experience of technical leadership is desirable and you should be able to combine a short term, pragmatic focus with medium term planning.
