Although not a household name, State Street is one of the world's largest and most important financial services institutions, providing round-the-clock services to the global investment community. We touch $39 trillion in assets every day and are the world's third largest investment manager with over $3.5 trillion in assets under management. To do this we manage as much data as one of the internet giants on nearly as large a technical footprint.
Recently we launched one of the industry's largest technical transformation projects, in effect building a new bank from the ground up. This project isn't greenfield in the way most banks claim projects are; we've started with a blank sheet of paper both operationally and technically. We're using the same technologies that Silicon Valley giants are using: use of multiple public clouds, building our own private cloud to achieve even better performance, transforming our industry through distributed ledger technology, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
This isn't a traditional banking role. This is a chance to push your technical skills with people more comfortable in a technology firm than an investment bank, though solving real problems that affect anyone with any form of savings worldwide (not just trying to get people to click on ads).
What you will be responsible for:
As a cloud platform engineer, you will deploy solutions in various private and public clouds using configuration provisioning and management tools (e.g., Terraform, Python APIs). Once in production your role is key to ensuring that solutions are performant and operational SLAs are maintained.
Build enterprise grade toolchain for enabling cloud compute resources.
Automatically deploy pipelines that build standardized and hardened O/S and container images
Turn around and do the same for package repositories (e.g. yum repo) and RPMs / Debian packages.
Use your cloud and linux prowess to better our Windows infrastructure as well!
Design and deploy patching solutions for different O/S on various clouds with different operational characteristics both immutable and the one that gathers moss.
Make concepts 'real' by telling enterprise architects how things really work versus what they may have seen in a vendor demo.
Avoid 2am production issues by building scalable and resilient ('works the first time') applications running globally.
Make things better by eliminating redundancies and manual steps via your code.
Who we value:
A dev-sec-ops engineer who writes resilient Infrastructure-as-code with agility; did we miss anything?
Have 5+ years of experience in automating away systems administration tasks on Linux and Windows; You leave systems administrators trembling in their boots in your quake! You have a command of Linux internals.
Smart and prefer to have others fork your git repos (versus forking some open source project to show commit counts) - in other words exhibit good coding habits and skills.
Experience scripting in Python, Bash, Java. Declarative IaC languages such as Cloudformation , Terraform, Cloud- init , and Ansible. Powershell would be a plus.
Have openness to touching multiple technologies and platforms - new and of yesteryear, and working with legacy systems and processes while creating solutions on green field platforms.
Focus on consistency with an eye for automation to the nth degree.
Have testing and operational skills - in a consistent robust, resilient, and automated manner.
Have the ability to design and implement with minimal supervision.
Have a Bachelor's degree in the Computing Sciences.
Education and preferred qualifications:
Graduate degree in the Computing Sciences.
Atleast 5+ years of prior experiences with exposure to developing large scale applications.
Have written apps using AWS services (a bit more than EC2 is always welcome).
Perform Kernel tuning.
