Job Description

We Are:

Intelligent Software Engineering Services (IES). We specialize in solving the really tough software engineering problems. A great day for us? Using our skills with data, AI, and cloud, and our general tech smarts to crack business challenges that looked too tough to consider, or where others have tried and failed. Big problems are everywhere, so we are too: we’re more than 30,000 problem solvers around the world, growing with each other and working with the biggest players in tech. Every one of us is a potential game changer, dedicated to applying The New to now. Visit us here to find out more about Accenture Intelligent Software Engineering Services.    


You Are:

A DevOps ace with deep technical know-how and hands-on experience implementing various practices and tools in the DevOps toolchain. Your not-so-secret talent? Designing and coding modules—fast and safely—for infrastructure, applications, and processes. As an emerging leader, you oversee client engagements to achieve the benefits that DevOps can offer. You thrive in fast-paced, multi-disciplinary environments and in team settings where you can use your prodigious creative and analytical powers to pulverize problems. Communication and people skills? You have both in spades, along with serious leadership chops. Working in an information systems environment makes you more than happy.


The Work:

  • Get DevOps up and running by overseeing the execution of tools and processes in the DevOps toolchain, and promote the DevOps culture in our client organizations.
  • Help customers with DevOps projects by providing them with technical, consultative, and delivery services.
  • Serve as a trusted automation and tooling advisor for DevOps initiatives by providing clients with objective, practical, and relevant advice.
  • Work with the development teams to meet acceptance criteria, gathering and documenting the requirements. Help lead continuous integration, delivery, automation, and infrastructure-as-code efforts for multiple cloud service offerings.
  • This includes setting up and managing the operation of project development and test environments as well as the software configuration management processes for the entire application development life cycle.
  • Present regular status updates, and provide cross-training and mentorship to junior DevOps members.
  • Help clients transition to DevOps by driving adoption of tools and practices, and by directing elements of the DevOps implementation.


Here’s What You Need:

  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience designing and implementing continuous delivery and/or DevOps solutions or architecture patterns
  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience with code repository management, code merge and quality checks, continuous integration, and automated deployment and management using tools like Jenkins, Git, Puppet, Chef, Maven, Ant, Ivy, UrbanCode, and Docker
  • Minimum of 3 years’ experience with approaches and tooling for automated build, delivery, and release of software
  • Minimum of 1 year’s experience working in an Agile delivery environment
  • A Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent work experience (12 years) or an Associate’s Degree with 6 years of work experience


Bonus Points if:

  • You’ve got experience in project or program management
  • You know how to define and manage the roadmap for implementation of DevOps in an established operation
  • You’re no newbie to working in a structured environment, including use of structured methods, approaches, and modern development tools
  • You’re familiar with technical architecture—that is, the design and delivery of IT systems for a broad range of clients
