GitHub DevOps Engineer

Posted on June 10th, 2019

GitHub helps companies and organizations succeed by enabling them to build better software: together. We're looking for a DevOps Engineer to help our DevOps Engineering team within Professional Services help solve our customers' needs. The ideal candidate will have the aptitude and passion to become a master of GitHub’s product capabilities and underlying technologies. We need a high performing engineering consultant to help our customers improve their software delivery. This person will solve challenges with many different technologies and work closely with our customers, as well as GitHub's internal departments.

Responsibilities

  • Providing solutions to customer challenges: The primary responsibility of this role is to understand the goals of our customers and to help them create a solution. Success in this role is marked by a strong focus on the customer, making a love of solving challenges for others a strong predictor of success. You will learn the customers' pain points and work collaboratively with the customer, GitHub team members, and potentially the open source community to find solutions.

  • Provide technical clarity: You will need to provide clarity to your customers regarding an array of technologies. You will need to understand GitHub's tools and platform well enough to weigh critical technical solutions in order to help your customers make informed decisions, striving to create high-quality, reusable solutions for customers. Collaborating closely with colleagues, often pairing, is essential to creating great solutions.

  • Build solutons: GitHub is often the central platform our customers use to ship software to theirs own end users and customers. This role requires active participation in building these solutions. This may be migrating source code to GitHub from legacy or competing source control systems, creating pipelines for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery, or even helping to automate the provisioning of infrastructure using IaaS tools such as Puppet, Chef or CloudFormation. The challenges for each customer will differ, offering endless opportunity to grow.

  • Your curiosity and hard work make you an expert in your areas of responsibility
  • You love solving technical challenges, and can prototype solutions quickly
  • You have experience in a Professional Services or consulting role
  • You possess strong verbal and written communication
  • You practice empathy in your day-to-day work
