Principal Cloud Release Development Engineer - APEX Engineering
Can be remote anywhere in the US but must already reside in the US
We’re doing something BIG here at Dell. We are pushing the boundaries of Cloud and redefining what it means. Cloud isn’t some mystical location of virtual assets – Cloud is an operating model and a way of applying technology to maximize value and minimize cost while making IT elastic and easier to use. With Dell Technologies APEX, we’re bringing Cloud to the customer, on-site - at a global scale. One heck of an ambitious goal even for us … oh and by the way, we’ve already started! Interested? Read on . . .
This role sits with APEX Offer Engineering at DT. We tout some of the most talented engineers, PM’s and leaders within DT ranks – and we sit at the heart of APEX. Isn’t that where you’ve always wanted to operate? … at the heart of challenge.
Who are you?
APEX Offer Engineering owns various development deliverables in respect to Release Engineering of various offers. As we work at the cutting edge, we design and develop against upgrade paths and SRE needs at cloud scale — all with the most advanced technologies, tools, software engineering methodologies and the collaboration of internal and external partners.
You’re a strong developer – some say a master, you are part visionary, part magician. You’ve probably solved difficult blockers with asymmetrical approaches. Your journey to Release Engineering solves hyperscale problems. Your orchestration has involved some of the best-of-breed tools. You eat acronyms like K8S, CI/CD, HA, IaC for breakfast. You don’t just leverage integration; you understand its benefits and you’re a driver for its adoption. You excel at breaking down problems, decoupling systems to automate, and you orchestrate the synchronous and asynchronous for deterministic outcomes. Oh, and you never retreat from challenge or “hard”. You seek it out – you’re a winner. You CHARGE in fearlessly to “what we don’t know” looking to disambiguate and solve… and you LOVE to share your knowledge and tactics with peers and teammates for achieving successful outcomes together.
What you’ll achieve:
As a Cloud Release Engineer you will be responsible for driving the successful development of packages and upgrade delivery methodologies and solutions across APEX.
