Ongoing mentoring and coaching of customer and TEKsystem engineers and technical oversight for the DevOps implementation
The following are key qualifications needed for this exciting role:
Extensive experience with DevOps and CI/CD process and tools, (e.g. Jenkins, TeamCity, Git, Artifactory, Octopus, Chef, Docker, etc.)
