Who exactly is it that we’re looking for?

Do you have boundless curiosity and a knack for problem solving? Are you hungry for technology, tinkering, and exploring new and interesting ways to build software products? Does the idea of working with like-minded experts to help build and deploy amazing products sound interesting? Well then, you sound like a Builder, and you belong on our team!

 

Slalom is looking for a Senior Engineer to join our North America team in the Cloud, DevOps, and Security (CDS) capability. Our CDS engineers build the secure automation capabilities that enable our application and data engineers to unleash their products to the world. Our goal is to create the platform to make a product smart, secure, and fast, while minimizing toil.

 

If you are ready to bring your skills to work alongside our team of builders, we promise you’ll be working hands-on in the cloud with some of the newest technologies out there. You name it, we work on it, and so can you. You’ll build across AWS, GCP, and Azure using a wide variety of tools across the DevOps landscape.

 

What you’ll do

  • Develop and implement complex automation tasks and cloud architecture.
  • Advocate DevOps culture, tooling, delivery methods, and cultural practices within Slalom and with our clients.
  • Assist with estimating work efforts and story pointing required for each phase of an agile project.
  • Provide technical guidance and mentoring to peers, less experienced engineers, and client personnel.
  • Identify, qualify, and raise technical risks and issues.
  • Help grow our culture of learning by taking part in and coordinating opportunities such as presenting at technical conferences, community groups, writing blog articles, and contributing to partner-coordinated workshops.
  • Up to 25% travel required, which will primarily be in support of project delivery, but may include professional development and capability development opportunities.

 

Your qualifications

  • 3+ years of progressively responsible software engineering and DevOps experience
  • Experience designing and implementing end-to-end Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines
  • Demonstrated production environment experience with at least one major public cloud (i.e., AWS, GCP, or Azure)
  • Experience in Configuration Management and Infrastructure-as-Code (e.g. Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, etc...)
  • Experience collaborating across multiple functional and/or technical teams to deliver an Agile-based project
  • Demonstrated growth mindset, enthusiastic about learning new technologies quickly and applying the gained knowledge to address practical business problems
  • Ability to communicate with clients on a business level and translate their needs into technical solutions
  • Experience delivering complex solutions utilizing common scripting/programming languages (e.g. Bash, PowerShell, Python, Go, etc...)
  • Demonstrated knowledge of fundamental cloud security (e.g., Identity and Access Management, firewalls, etc...)

An Insider's view of Slalom

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Slalom provides us the autonomy to work in the ways we are most effective. This can include opportunities to work from home, at the office, as well as at the client site.

Chris

Solution Architect, Technology Enablement

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work across multiple projects with various co-workers and teams, which means I both learn something new and introduce others to the value of design every day. I love watching people get jazzed about things that I love and it’s great knowing that if I ever a question or problem that has me stumped, the answer is only a conversation away.

Ryn

Consultant, Experience Designer

What does career growth look like on your team?

At Slalom, growth isn’t just a title change or adding managerial responsibilities; it's the opportunity to grow into the professional you want to be. The consultants on my team are able to take charge of their growth by proactively seeking out what they would like to learn, do or achieve — and my job as team lead is to help them get those chances.

A.J.

Solution Principal, Business Advisory Services

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Internal education and experience programs let consultants bring their ideas and passions to life. The programs provide mentors, advocates, and guidance to build and hone your skills in particular technologies or be able to build a proof-of-concept. Apply and enhance your learnings with real hands-on experience.
