Job Description

Problem statement
Developer teams need timely feedback about the quality of their work. Whenever developers submit a change, they should see within minutes if this change e.g. breaks the build, any tests or other quality-related checks in the continuous delivery pipeline.

Various projects at Bosch in Lund use continuous delivery (CD). Today, feedback is mostly given by email or messaging to the developer who broke the build. This does not make the health status of the CD pipeline transparent to the whole team or even the whole site.

We want to know, which type of information and which means of presentation have the best effect on the developers and the performance of the delivery pipeline.

Proposed Solution
Extract data from delivery pipelines of various teams. Identify and study various means to give feedback to developers using experimentation / data-driven methods.
