Rise to meet the challenge of solutioning the world’s problems. Software Engineers at IBM get to see their work in the real world, from improving the current state of disaster preparedness to providing more accurate medical solutions around the globe. You will be challenged to think outside the box, work across organizations, and engineer creative solutions that scale to the demands of our ever-growing customer base.

Your Role and Responsibilities

Are you passionate about technology? Do you love building new things? Do you want to develop the future of IBM's Cloud offerings? If you answered YES, then we have the right opportunity for you!

The shift toward the consumption of IT as a service, i.e., the cloud, is one of the most important changes to happen to our industry in decades. At IBM, we are driven to shift our technology to an as-a-service model and to help our clients transform themselves to take full advantage of the cloud. With industry leadership in analytics, security, commerce, and cognitive computing and with unmatched hardware and software design and industrial research capabilities, no other company is as well positioned to address the full opportunity of cloud computing.

The Cloud System Development team is a team dedicated to ensuring that the IBM Cloud is at the forefront of cloud technology, from data center design to network architecture to storage and compute clusters to flexible infrastructure services. We are building IBM's next generation cloud platform to deliver performance and predictability for our customers' most demanding workloads, at global scale with efficiency, resiliency and security. It is an exciting time, and as a team we are driven by this incredible opportunity to thrill our clients.

We are looking for a senior Kubernetes configuration expert to join our team who will work as a senior developer on our kubernetes control plane for the next generation IBM Cloud. In this role, you will be responsible for coordinating the configuration of kubernetes across many teams that deliver code that must be deployed, upgraded and execute in a highly available manner with no downtime in a kubernetes environment. You will perform hands-on configuration, design, and system level debugging of our kubernetes environment that is the control center for the next generation IBM cloud. You will interface with Operations to support the maintainability and debuggability of the cloud, Release engineering to support the deployment and upgradability of the cloud, and internal development teams to support their requirements in delivering new features and fixes into the cloud with no downtime. This role will require you to interface with senior architects across several locations to ensure that the overall strategy is communicated and understood.

As an ideal candidate, you are someone who has repeatedly worked across the entire software stack at an enterprise level. Experience with highly tunable and scalable cloud deployments is also preferred. If you are passionate about cloud development, if you enjoy not only sharing a vision, but getting your hands dirty to be sure that that vision is made a reality in a fast-paced, challenging environment, then we want to talk to you!
