Software Developers at IBM are the backbone of our strategic initiatives to design, code, test, and provide industry-leading solutions that make the world run today - planes and trains take off on time, bank transactions complete in the blink of an eye and the world remains safe because of the work our software developers do. Whether you are working on projects internally or for a client, software development is critical to the success of IBM and our clients worldwide. At IBM, you will use the latest software development tools, techniques and approaches and work with leading minds in the industry to build solutions you can be proud of.

Your Role and Responsibilities

The Aspera Devops and Site-Reliability Team is a small team dedicated to managing IBM Aspera's SaaS offering, Aspera on Cloud. Aspera on Cloud is an application that customers such as Walt Disney, Warner Bros, Netflix, BP, Shell, and Sony, utilize for managing and transferring files in the cloud, whether it be in IBM Cloud, AWS, Azure, or Google. Aspera's software enables customers to transfer files at enhanced speeds, allowing for remote workflows that stretch across the globe. It is a unique offering in IBM, being truly multi-cloud from the very beginning, which means team members work in cloud environments that they normally don't get experience with, within IBM.

The Devops/SRE team is responsible for ensuring uptime requirements are met, ensuring compliance requirements are being adhered to, and ensuring the code changes are deployed smoothly. We are the glue that holds the service together, and the conduit between developers and the services they write.
