DevOps Engineer - Cambridge, United Kingdom

Qualcomm

13 days ago
Company:Qualcomm Technologies International Ltd
Job Area:Engineering Group, Engineering Group > Software Engineering
Job Overview:
Qualcomm is a company of inventors that unlocked 5G ushering in an age of rapid acceleration in connectivity and new possibilities that will transform industries, create jobs, and enrich lives. But this is just the beginning. It takes inventive minds with diverse skills, backgrounds, and cultures to transform 5Gs potential into world-changing technologies and products. This is the Invention Age - and this is where you come in.
The primary role of the team is to develop, deliver, maintain, upgrade and support internal test infrastructure and test frameworks within Qualcomm’s Connectivity & Networking Business Unit. The team plays a vital role in the introduction of new products, by providing infrastructure which enables their development from first pre-production samples through to mass production.
The role of a Senior DevOps Engineer involves working with technology experts to pull together all the elements that make up a test infrastructure (e.g. hardware, software, drivers, test frameworks, etc) to build a working, reliable, manageable test framework. In addition to the above, solutions need to be rolled out and managed globally. This includes building and maintaining network solutions and machines using Chef and building and maintaining system configuration packages using Jenkins.
Another important aspect is customer support (internal customers). When a test framework is rolled-out, the end customer will typically integrate this into their test environment and create scripts to configure and manage the test runs. During this period test system integration support is required and ongoing support is also provided for the life of the test solution. This is a unique role with opportunities to do software development as well as DevOps. You will be expected to be a key contributor to system architecting and testing of new test infrastructure solutions.
Duties and Responsibilities:
+ Deliver and subsequently maintain hardware and software systems for driving and reporting on Qualcomm’s deliverables
+ Integrate executable components, device drivers, scripts and hardware
+ Manage and maintain thousands of rack-mounted computers in an automated manner through a configuration management system such as Chef
+ Develop and maintain management applications for end users (e.g. web-based dashboards, HTTP REST APIs)
+ Stay abreast of developments in the field, and therefore ensure the most fitting solutions to the end users
+ Support other teams to utilise the system and to enhance it where appropriate based on user feedback
+ Gather, triage and prioritise requirements to ensure development is best suited to the needs of the business
+ Identify optimal solutions that address seemingly disparate and competing requirements by spotting similarities and designing or adopting tools that address these requirements sensibly with long term maintainability in mind
+ Contribute to the technical direction and have sufficient communication skills to influence the software and system architecture
+ Follow quality processes, and where those processes are deficient, be able to implement new processes for usability, security, disaster recovery, etc
+ Leverage existing technologies towards new applications in a reusable and sustainable manner, while being proactive at evaluating alternative and new technologies
+ Embrace continuous improvement by troubleshooting, documenting, and reviewing any issues during deployments
Preferred Experience:
+ Proven experience with Linux systems (Ubuntu in particular): drivers, shells scripts, boot management, system administration, networking
+ Proven experience with scripting languages, mainly Python and Ruby
+ Proven experience with web development (Django, Rails) and implementation of HTTP-based APIs
+ Advanced knowledge of TCP/IP and the OSI network protocol stack
+ Proven experience with configuration management systems Chef/Puppet/Ansible
+ Good knowledge of Debian packaging
+ Good understanding of web server technologies (Nginx/Apache)
+ The experience to identify and assess new technologies and evaluate their applicability
+ Experienced in gathering, triaging and prioritizing requirements
+ Experienced in planning and scheduling work
+ Excellent analytical, problem-solving abilities and attention to detail
+ Experience working with infrastructure monitoring solutions (Nagios/Prometheus)
+ Understanding of key technologies in application development: Source Code Management - Configuration Management - Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment - Service Oriented Architectures
Minimum Qualifications & Skills
+ Bachelor's degree in Science, Computing, Engineering or related field
+ 4+ years of experience
+ Linux
+ Python
+ Bash
+ Jenkins
Desired Skills:
+ C/C++
