Required Skills Linux

Additional Skills Additional Qual Notes Kubernetes background (3+ years)- if they know Kubernetes, they'll know OpenShift GitOps experience Automation & scripting is a huge plus Background in programming / development (C++ or JavaScript or Java Programming) DevOps experience a nice-to-have (note: note a DevOps role)

Job Description

Must have expertise and experience installing and/or updating Red Hat's OpenShift Container Platform

We want the engineers who are architecting and installing the platforms and supporting them entirely from the ground up

In general, if they have a strong background with Kubernetes that is a major plus

OpenShift is essentially Kubernetes under the hood, some other Kubernetes platforms similar to OpenShift are Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) our team's focus is OpenShift though

If they have experience with DevOps/GitOps and programming/scripting (i.e. Java, C++, bash, python, Go) skills, this is a plus as well

This all ties into automation, which we like. So, if they have these skills then they have experience with automating things (we like this ??)

Ansible/Terraform are technologies around automation that we like to see, not necessarily a requirement or something we work with every day, but again shows that they have experience with the automation stuff

Experience with Public Clouds is a plus as well, primarily with Microsoft Azure
