Principal DevOps Engineer. FTE/C2H. Madison, WI. (L-3092) (C)


Are you a DevOps Engineer looking for a long-term, principal role?  Interested in the Madison, WI market?  Then this permanent position might be of interest to you.

In short, our end client is looking to build out their DevOps team and processes.  This is really a green field for the client (not much there around DevOps tools/processes).  As such they are looking to fill this position via a direct hire or a contract-to-hire resource.  Role would involve the resource leading all aspects of the full DevOps toolchain not to mention the supporting organziational aspects (three ways, lean, kaizen, post-mortems, etc.).    The right candidate could start immediately once background check completes.  

So if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!

** Note, slightly more in depth interview process than usual given the degree of leadership this role will have.  Starts with a 30-minute tech screen via webex.  If that goes well a 90 minute technical and work history (from resume) interview. If that goes well there is final coding excercise with the tech lead (peer programming excercise).  **
