The Role Primary areas of ownership : - Development environment- Service development framework and libraries- CI / CD (continuous integration / continuous deployment)- Dev machine setup / configuration / automation- Defining and tracking operational excellence standards We have developed an in-house Kubernetes development environment (read about it at our medium article : ) that the entire engineering organisation bases their daily work on and mimics productionWe have also built a templating-based project and set of libraries to rapidly and securely build Golang-based services, libraries, tools, and CLIs that easily test and deploy across our local development through to production environments.
Our team is evolving these pieces toward a fully open-sourced client+server development and deployment environment startup in a box , with the goal of building a vibrant community around it.
We are the main drivers of engineering excellence in the company, using everything from custom linting systems to rubric-based service catalogs to help nudge everyone towards sustainable engineering practices.
With the explicit support of engineering leadership, we set patterns and processes for other teams to follow to help them not just be more efficient, but also build systemic pits of success around modular business-logic-focused development that doesn’t lock teams into generational technical debt.
Toward these goals, the dev tooling manager builds relationships with every other team in engineering to keep on top of what they’re planning / building to make sure that our common tooling and systems stay ahead.
The charter is wide, the opportunities for organisational impact are boundless, and we have your back to try new things and see if they stick and do, in fact, make everyone more efficient.
If this sounds exciting to you, come have a chat - we’d love to talk about what we’re doing here. LocationPrague, while we are remote-friendly, we remain an office-centric company.
