Your Role and Responsibilities

We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated Delivery Project Executive with the focus on hybrid-cloud-Platforms.
The Delivery Project Executive (DPE) who specialize in reliability and resiliency with the right mix of knowledge and skills in software and systems, responsible to analyze business needs, problem determination, advise & design, build, test, deploy, changes and maintenance of a well engineered information system and ecosystems.

Who are and what do they do?
A Delivery Project Executive (DPE) is a software developer with IT operations experience - someone who knows how to code, and who also understands how to 'keep the lights on' in a large-scale IT environment.

Delivery Project Executive spend no more than half their time performing manual IT operations and system administration tasks – analyzing logs, performance tuning, applying patches, testing production environments, responding to incidents, conducting postmortems - and spend the rest of their time developing code that automates those tasks. Their goal is to spend much less time on the former and much more time on the latter over time.

At a higher level, the DPE team serves as a bridge between development teams and operations teams, enabling the development team to bring new software or new features to production as quickly as possible, while also ensuring an agreed-upon acceptable level of IT operations performance and error risk in line with the service level agreements (SLAs) the organization has in place with its customers. Based on their experience and a wealth of operations data, the DPE team helps the development and operations teams establish
  • Service level indicators (SLIs): Measurements of the service level provided by systems - metrics such as availability (uptime) or latency
  • Service level objectives (SLOs): Agreed-upon means of measuring service level indicators
  • Error budgets: The maximum amount of time a system can fail or underperform without violating the contractual terms of the SLA. More than a metric, the error budget is the tool a Delivery Project Executive team uses to automatically reconcile a company's pace of innovation with its service reliability.
