Backend Platform Engineer
- New York, NY, USA
Buildit @ Wipro Digital is a global technology consultancy and part of Wipro Digital and the wider Wipro Organisation. As consultants, we are technology agnostic, we advise, we don’t advocate. We love demanding challenges and getting to the root of the problem, whatever it may be. “Digital” can be both ambiguous and all encompassing with aspects of Engineering, Design, and Delivery. Technology centric but much more than just technologists, our agenda is delivering success for our customers.
We value transparency, curiosity, inclusivity and getting stuff done. Our people are at the core of this process. Trust in our people underpins everything we do. We also help our clients on their transformation journey and through that process we are helping to transform the company we work for as well. We are helping to create new business model: a new technology consulting business.
You are a tech lead and are deeply experienced with shaping work and guiding engineering teams, as well as being very hands-on. You have broad experience across the entire software development life-cycle, from inception through to production. You've successfully delivered complex technical programmes of work at scale; you also know where things tend to go wrong and know how to intercept or prevent those situations.
The work is varied, ranging from engineering leadership within a product team to developing sustainable infrastructure via container orchestration to changing engineering practices that cross organisational boundaries. You will need initiative, resilience and patience, but you will have the opportunity to directly impact how large enterprises practice software engineering.
Please, note that this role requires up to 60% travel within the US.
Not essential but experience with other languages such as Node.js, Groovy, Scala, Ruby, or Python would be a nice-to-have
Good engineering practices:
Continuous integration, continuous delivery/deployment (e.g. Jenkins, Travis, CircleCI)
Testing: TDD, BDD, integration, E2E
Version control and typical workflows
Working knowledge of latest technologies:
Containers (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher)
Cloud infrastructure/services (e.g. AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform)
Infrastructure-as-code (e.g. Ansible, Puppet, Terraform)
Understanding of high-availability, disaster-recovery, monitoring and logging at scale
- Good communication skills across diverse groups (stakeholders, engineers, business analysts, etc.)
- Initiative (identify value work and execute delivery)
- Leadership (influencing stakeholders, up-skilling engineers)
- Commercial awareness (pragmatic approach to problem-solving)
- Systems thinker (understand how large organisations operate and common pitfalls, LEAN manufacturing)
- Agile (experience with Scrum, Kanban)
- Collaboration (work in an open and sharing culture)
We aim to provide feedback as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have any feedback on the process we would be very keen to hear it. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and refine how we work so would love to hear what your side of the story is, good or bad. Please, feel free to contact us at [email protected]
