CI Software Engineer, Build Infrastructure
Foundry
 London, KY
THE TEAM.

Foundry is in search of a CI Software Engineer specialising in CI configuration management for our Foundry-wide Platform Team. This role will focus on the build infrastructure across the portfolio, both working directly on refining our cross-platform Jenkins infrastructure (using CMake/Conan under the hood). As part of the latter, you will help define best practice and play a part in educating the company as a whole, helping contribute to tech workshops and reading clubs for use of Jenkins including the configuration of matrix jobs, slave management, and groovy scripting. We would also like you to contribute to the scripts that plug the build pipeline together. Your focus on enabling our product teams to be able to look after their build, release, and test infrastructure whilst sharing technology, know-how, and code rather than one of looking after these functions for those teams.

THE RESPONSIBILITIES.

  • Work as part of our centralised Platform Team partnering with product teams to maintain, improve, develop, document and implement automated build, release, and test pipelines, prioritising self-service so that individual teams are knowledgeable and independent.
  • Play an active part in aiding troubleshooting of build pipelines, collating and prioritising feedback to input back into the roadmap for the platform team and product teams.
  • Educate, mentor, and develop a similar skill set within our product teams focussing on enabling them to self serve.
  • As with all Software Engineer roles at Foundry, you will help to ensure the quality, scalability, and extensibility of the code that we’re writing - starting with your own but extending to code reviews and design of others as well.

THE REQUIREMENTS.

  • 3 - 5 years experience, preferably with a development background
  • Significant experience of build and release engineering in that experience
  • Strong experience with build management and continuous integration tools like Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, or Travis
  • Experience with Jenkins and Groovy scripting would be strongly preferred
  • Proficiency with a scripting language such as Python
  • Experience of Version Control Systems (e.g. Perforce, Git)
  • Experience with cross-platform development (OSX, Linux, Windows) beneficial
  • Experience of the virtualization platforms (e.g. vSphere) and containerisation beneficial
  • Experience with C/C++ is a plus
