Long term Contract
USC is required
AppDev Workstream – DevOps Team - DevOps Engineer SDE
Profile & Description
We are embarking on a major restructuring of a system that conducts over 4 billion dollars of business per year. We are also building Web base UI using RIA techniques and REST/JSON. This DevOps group is responsible to provide the tools and support necessary to help our core development teams manage, promote, release this software. They are also responsible for working with our infrastructure group to plan operational support including collaborative processes for promotion of build artifacts into secure environments.
Our environment includes a wide mix of J2EE, Oracle, WebLogic, VMWare, message buses and Openstack. We are moving towards a hosting model closer to that scripted build out and release onto operational pre-hardened OS images with specified capacity provided by our operations group. Many of our build, release and artifact management processes must be upgraded to work in this new mode. We cannot transition everything all at once so charting a path with incremental upgrades will be critical.
The DevOps engineer ensures that your developers are never doing repetitive tasks, and that the infrastructure is kept up to date as the stack evolves. As processes change and the company grows, the DevOps engineer automates as much as possible to accelerate work. Because of DevOps, developers can focus on their core work so you can deliver products earlier and more reliably.”
We strongly believe in script based provisioning where Dev ops starts with docker style scripts building up the rest of the application hosting stack from the pre-hardened virts provided by operations. We don’t want any GUI in this process because we want to be able to fully script complete new stack provisioning through the go live process.
While our core development is done in Java the DevOps position will require scripting in a wide variety of languages like Python, docker scripts, puppet, etc. This is an evolving stack so you need to have a love of learning new tools, new languages and radical new ways of thinking about the intersection between Development and operations. You need to be passionate about webscale technologies as applied to scale growing businesses.
Over the next few years we plan to deploy a wider variety of web scale technologies such as Kafka, Mecmcache, shared nothing architectures, advanced caching of materialized views, etc. Each of these will have it’s own challenges getting ready for production hosting.
DevOps also provides a gatekeeper function so software that does not provide appropriate health checks and integration in logging and monitoring can be stopped before it is released. We obviously want this process to be as automated as feasible.
