The Role

As the Senior Build & Release Engineer, you would be leading the charge from concept to implementation in taking the build & release system to the next level. Does lack of automation make you anxious? Do you like to provide developers “buttons” and “levers” to reduce human-error in the deployment process? Do your dreams run in the cloud when they’ve exceeded the on-site footprint? Do you verify your unit-test cases by writing unit-test cases for them? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, and you really like a challenge, the Senior Build & Release Engineer role may be something for you!
