Position:

Senior DevOps, Irvine, US

Project Description

The Customer:

Our Customer is one of the world's largest investment management companies. Based in Southern California, our client manages close to $2 trillion in assets and is looking for a new partner to participate in a full scale upgrade of their technology. We are looking for talented and ambitious people to work on the engagement in the client's offices near Los Angeles, California.

This program is supported by a team of Software Configuration Managers (SCM's). The SCM's handle a significant volume of environment, configuration, deployment and related tasks. In order to complete many of these tasks, the SCM's require information/input from program architects, developers, etc. At times, work may be delayed as the SCM seeks out (and perhaps waits for) information that is needed to complete a specific task.

With this role, we are streamlining the communication between the SCM's and other project team members. The goal is for the various SCM's to work directly with this resource to gather the information and feedback needed to complete specific tasks. Therefore, what is required is a strong mix of communications (both verbal & written), technical, and leadership skills. This resource will be required to communicate both with the SCM's and many other program team members (developers, BSA's, etc.). They also will need to be able to prioritize their own work as they will be working with multiple SCM's, on multiple tasks, concurrently. As this resource gains experience and knowledge in this program/environment, the resource will be able to directly provide information and answer questions (this is the ultimate goal).

• Work within onsite part of a distributed development team that provides services for applications.
• Initial technical analysis of incoming issues
• Handle incoming incidents and service requests, either resolving them or routing to offshore team for resolution
• Coordinate activities with multiple groups, including deployment and environment support teams

Skills

Must

• Excellent in issue investigation, prioritization, and resolution
• Outstanding writing and verbal communications skills
• Ability to work on multiple tasks/issues concurrently
• Ability to learn while doing
• Ability to remain calm and professionally handle issues when stress levels increase
• The following skills/experience will allow the resource to be successful in this role:
o Practical experience with job schedulers
