Lead DevOps Engineer

We’re looking for someone to lead our systems engineering team. You’ll be responsible for setting the ideal CI & CD target state and executing a roadmap with your team that moves the organisation towards that target state. You balance deep technical and domain skills with leadership experience.

What you'll do

As the team lead for the systems engineering team, you’ll be expected to develop the CI & CD vision (in collaboration with technical leadership) and execute against that vision with your team. Seven product teams will use the infrastructure owned by your team to develop, test and deploy their components. Your team will also be integral during the release cycles, where all the components need to be integrated and tested before being released. The expectation is that your team incrementally improves the release process towards the CI & CD target state.

Alongside executing your roadmap, your team is also expected to represent the broader infrastructure community in Backbase. This means coordinating cross-organisational initiatives and communicating the status of infrastructure incidents to the organisation.

Adopting the goal of “teaching a man to fish”, your team will also work towards enabling the seven product teams to be self-sufficient by documenting processes and running trainings, workshops and coaching sessions.

You will also coach your team to adopt a customer service mentality and to support the product teams as needed.
