About Business Unit :
Pivotal Labs and DellEMC employs a DevOps culture which is pervasive in our execution. The competitive advantage this capability provides is enormous, enabling faster feature time to market, increased customer satisfaction, employee productivity, as well as allowing the organization to win in the marketplace.
Why? Because technology has become the dominant value creation process and an increasingly important means of customer acquisition within most organizations.
Deeply rooted in the principles of lean production and the Toyota Production System, Pivotal relentlessly works to improve, focusing on the value stream and reducing all other waste in the system.
What it feels like to work in a Dev ops community
Working in Pivotal / DellEMC is fast paced and exhilarating. Imagine an environment where the definition of development, QA, IT operations and info sec all work together relentlessly to help each other and the overall organization succeed.
At Pivotal infrastructure stories are prioritized alongside feature delivery and developers frequently write Ruby scripts, update infrastructure and deploy their applications to production.
Just like in TPS (The Toyota Production System) individuals working as part of the community receive consistent and immediate feedback on the state of their deliverables.
The goal is to highlight problems as they occur and to alleviate them so the development process can continue to flow consistently and without accumulating debt.
This continuous feedback is communicated via large computer monitors strategically placed so developers can receive immediate feedback.
Two heads are better than one
Developers at Pivotal / DellEMC work in pairs. Employing an Extreme Programming (XP) style of execution designed to facilitate shorter development and release cycles.
The goal is to create fast feedback loops to prevent problematic code from going into production and to enable code to quickly be deployed when all validation tests have passed.
Following closely the principles of extreme programming, each developer writes a test prior to writing implementation code.
The goal is to write only enough code as is necessary to make the test pass. Developers in the community place a premium on quality and as a result focus on writing tests first.
Everyone in the value stream employs a culture that not only values each others time and contributions but also relentlessly injects pressure into the system of work to enable organizational learning and improvement.
Everyone dedicates time to testing and qualification of their deliverables to avoid accumulating technical debt and negatively impacting downstream teams with poor quality deliverables.
In this environment nonfunctional requirements are just as important in achieving business objectives.
Developers are encouraged to avoid programming any features until they are actually needed, focusing on clarity of code and test writing.
Reviewing and refactoring code is a common, on-going activity. The Pivotal "mindset" can be summarized easily, when taking a story from the backlog each developer is encouraged to do the following :
1. Hypothesis : We believe that ...
2. Test : We will do / make a test that proves...
3. Evidence : We will know the hypothesis is valid if
Additional to asking these questions, developers are encouraged to think about how long it will take to answer these questions and the cost of solving them.
We promote a high trust and highly collaborative culture where everyone is responsible for the quality of their code. A hypothesis driven culture requiring everyone to measure and prove their assumptions.
Build, measure, learn is key to our success.
Key Responsibilities :
An ideal candidate is someone who enjoys working in a fast paced, collaborative environment. Someone that values team and leverages the opinions and expertise of their teammates to deliver working, quality code.
Each individual values quality and pursues the proof of quality by consistently writing tests.
Essential Requirements :
Knowledge of the cloud and deployment expectations and complexities. Developers should be capable of deploying application bits’ to AWS or other similar cloud environment.
Our expectation is good foundational knowledge in a language such as Java / Python / Ruby / C++ / Go is necessary.
A demonstration of more than just the basics is required to be successful.
We offer highly competitive salaries, bonus programs, world-class benefits, and unparalleled growth and development opportunities all to create a compelling and rewarding work environment.
