What You'll Be Doing:

  • You'll ensure external dependencies are handled and internal needs are met
  • You'll work in an open and collaborative environment with your peers to oversee related or dependent release activities and deliverables to align with Cloud Operations guidelines.
  • You'll provide schedules and track projects, releases, upgrades, and maintenance to meet desired milestones.

  • You possess strong technical acumen, with fundamental knowledge of key cloud technologies and tools (AWS, Docker, Ansible, Puppet, Artifactory).
