Role and Responsibility

This senior technical leader role requires a person with a background in software development with a mix of operations. Candidate must have experience building, shipping and operating at least one software-as-a-service (SaaS) product using at least one major cloud technology. The ideal candidate would have done several such products using several cloud technologies (VM s/containers/cloud services) on several different clouds (AWS/Rackspace/Azure). This role will guide the development, deployment and operation of core cloud technology used by major Service Provider (SP) and Enterprise customers all over the world. While the product being delivered is both a platform and a service, this role is not about core data center technology. The emphasis of this role is to influence and guide the platform development to be highly operable and efficient - for both development of new features and core operations. This can only be accomplished by a candidate with substantial real-world experience actually building, deploying and operating distributed systems using cloud technologies.

This is a very senior technical role oriented more towards the actual implementation and operation of the product. The candidate is expected to still have hands-on skills and will guide and contribute technically to the product.

Minimum Qualifications

? 10+ years experience building complex API-driven software - most of that in a cloud environment

? Significant expertise with distributed systems, ideally in a cloud environment

? Very strong understanding of cloud technologies - has deployed more than one solution on the cloud

? Strong understanding of networking and complex networked software systems

? Significant experience with cloud technologies and DevOps approaches to modern software delivery

? Experienced with modern cloud-based software tools and approaches (Git, CI/CD, automated testing)

? Bachelor degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience

? Experience in Agile environments - both scrum and kanban

? Able to contribute beyond just coding (code reviews, demos, proof of concept solutions)

? Detail-oriented personality who does not lose sight of the big picture

? Entrepreneurship - startup experience highly desired

? Must have experience shipping software in a successful customer-facing Cloud Business
