If you are interested in elevating the developer experience, eliminating the minutia and tedium with traditional development processes and thrive in a high performing team, then this is the team for you. 

What you will do

This team will build on two decades of experience, success and real-world exposure to bridge the gap between clouds, IoT and whatever the future has in store into a modern fabric that can span wherever it needs to. Any language, any framework, any cloud, anywhere. 


  • Play a lead role in design and development efforts for significant initiatives within major business areas.
  • Independently design, develop, test and document moderately complex software systems and applications.
  • Collaborate with analysts, peers and other stakeholders on projects to develop highly complex systems
  • Bring your expertise to bear in helping move the team’s capabilities forward: by providing Q&A and peer review for fellow developers and by developing system alterations and designs to enhance existing technologies. 
  • Envision innovating disruptive technologies and collaborate with in-house experts to bring your vision to life.
  • Lead efforts to define and support coding standards.

What you will bring:

Team members will be both Architects and DevOps as they define, enable and deliver a self-service fabric that trusts, but verifies.  Creating the transparently secure and high performing system will require hands-on development in:

  • C#, java or NodeJS/REACT as well as other scripting, automation and reporting capabilities.
  • Kubernetes experience is highly desirable as well as AWS, GCP or Azure expertise. 
  • A solid belief in CNCF, Apache Foundation or other OSS practices is considered a must as the driving principle behind the team is build/buy then integrate and extend.
