Introduction
At IBM, work is more than a job – it’s a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you’ve never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world’s most challenging problems? If so, lets talk.

Your Role and Responsibilities

  • Do you have a passion for learning legacy processes and implementing modernized replacements?

  • Are you a curious innovator looking to join a ready-and-able squad through DevOps transformation?

  • If so, joining our z/OS DevOps team is a great opportunity for you.

Our team has already successfully been taking advantage of industry standard automation tooling to ensure quality, simplify processes, and introduce other opportunities to improve our z/OS product releases process. We need a DevOps engineer to augment our squad through this time of growth and to accelerate this modernization work.

Job Duties:

  • Directly serving IBM’s internal z/OS product development and test groups – hundreds of engineers across IBM z/OS operating system and middleware software engineers.

  • Learn to enhance, maintain, and support our current DevOps catalog – mainly consisting of code to leverage industry standard DevOps tools on the IBM Z platform.

  • Develop, test, and deploy tools and services to assist the z/OS products during their lifecycle of development and test activities – development ‘nightly’ builds and final product release for external customers.

  • Preparing, running, monitoring, and resolving the results of modern Jenkins pipelines.

  • Collaborate with z/OS Build team and DevOps technical leaders.

  • Ongoing modernization efforts – work with your squad and sponsored users to design and deliver improvements to existing processes and create novel additions.

As a member of the z/OS DevOps squad, you will be expected to take ownership over on-platform DevOps development and operations for the elements that make up z/OS and other related products. Key qualities of this role would be:

  • Collaborative and reliable with teammates

  • Accountable for operations responsibilities

  • Quality-focused while innovating

The team has regular release cycle deliverables and works together to get the work done right and on-time. We are building the team with new skills and need to take our deep operational expertise and translate that into new automation pipelines for use by the development and test squads which we serve.
