Senior Engineer - Platform Engineering

Slalom, LLC Chicago, IL Full-Time
This role is not eligible for 100% remote work and employees must live within a commutable distance to the office in which the role is based.

Who You'll Work With

At Slalom Build we co-create custom software, data and cloud products with clients who are ready to accelerate their digital transformation. We're passionate about technology, compelled by its potential as we help create the digital products, experiences, and technology-driven organizations that drive true change. We're thrilled by the opportunity to build the future we want to see, with anyone willing to join us.

Slalom Build is looking for a Senior Engineer to join our North America team in the Platform Engineering (PE) capability. Our PE engineers build the secure automation capabilities that enable our application and data engineers to unveil their products to the world. Our goal is to create the platform to make a product smart, secure, and fast, while minimizing toil.

You'll be working hands-on in the cloud with some of the newest technologies out there. You'll build in AWS, GCP, and Azure using a wide variety of tools across the DevOps landscape. You name it, we work on it. And so can you.

What You'll Do

In PE, a Senior Engineer defines the complex automation tasks and cloud architecture components for a given solution. Your role is to maximize velocity for platform and environment enablement for developers through leveraging a DevOps mindset and focus. Specifically, you will:

  • Advocate for DevOps culture, tooling, delivery methods, and cultural practices within Slalom Build as well as our clients.
  • Assist with estimating work efforts and story pointing required for each phase of an agile project.
  • Provide technical guidance and mentoring to peers, less experienced engineers, and client personnel.
  • Identify, qualify, and raise technical risks and issues.
  • Help grow our culture of learning by taking part in and coordinating opportunities such as presenting at technical conferences, community groups, writing blog articles, and contributing to partner-coordinated workshops

You will primarily work in a Build Center with your team. Occasionally, you may need to work at the client location, requiring up to 25% travel.

What You'll Bring

Senior Engineers in PE bring experience across software engineering and DevOps in production across at least one major public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure). We will tap into your knowledge of designing and implementing end-to-end continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines as well as your experience in configuration management and infrastructure as code (e.g., Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, etc.) Security is part of everything we do and will require your knowledge of fundamental cloud security (e.g., identity and access management, firewalls, etc.) as we build for our customers.

As a Senior Engineer you will collaborate across multiple functional and/or technical teams to deliver an Agile-based project. You will be leveraging your growth mentality, bringing enthusiasm about learning new technologies quickly, and applying your gained knowledge to address practical business problems for your customer. Showing your ability to communicate with clients on a business level and translate their needs into technical solutions will be what maximizes velocity for the team.
