This role will be based out of Oracle's downtown Seattle Offices.
We are looking for an experienced Software Development Engineer with cloud services experience to join the Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) team. Our CI/CD system must empower engineers to quickly build, deploy and test application code changes through a release pipeline that spans various test environments to production. In this role, you will need to collaborate with the development teams to determine the technical challenges we need to solve from a CI/CD infrastructure, tools and frameworks perspective. You will be responsible for defining, designing, implementing and supporting software solutions to address these CI/CD challenges. Through this work, you will play a key role in increasing the velocity and quality of code releases through the product development lifecycle across all development teams.
As an ideal candidate, you will have an understanding of large-scale distributed systems (cloud-based environments), posses the technical ability to identify and break down challenging technical problems, as well as design and implement solutions to those problems. In addition, you are passionate about improving engineering efficiency and developing a technical breadth of how we build, test and deliver our IaaS solution. You are results driven and thrive in an environment that is agile, collaborative and in start-up mode, even when faced with ambiguity. You are excited to utilize your in-depth knowledge of delivering complex services and expertise in hands on software to create an engineering environment that embodies the best development and testing practices for delivering a high quality service.
These are exciting times in our space - we are growing fast, still at an early stage, and working on ambitious new initiatives. If you are passionate about taking ownership of big technical challenges and producing software solutions that have broad, significant impacts - come join our team!
