Job Description - Senior MTS, TKG Open Source Engineering

The Elevator Pitch: Why would you enjoy this new opportunity? * *

Enterprises are running mission critical software in more places than ever before -- in their datacenter, hybrid cloud, public cloud, and at the edge.  In order to catalyze Enterprise transformation through software, VMware envisions a world where Kubernetes is as available as a utility — like electricity — customers need to deploy a consistent Kubernetes grid across all their operational environments.  Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) provides Enterprise organizations with a consistent, upstream compatible, Kubernetes substrate across SDDC, Public Cloud, and Edge environments that is ready for end-user workloads and ecosystem integrations. TKG builds on trusted open source and community projects and delivers an engineered and supported Kubernetes platform for end users and partners.

What is the primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem you will be responsible for?

You will be a part of the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid open source team, with a focus on CNCF projects like Kubernetes, containerd, etcd, coredns, etc. As an engineer on this team, you will be contributing to Kubernetes in areas of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Release and Testing to improve the project’s CI signal and community infrastructure. You will also work on the core aspects of other CNCF projects to improve the projects’ stability.

You will work with TKG teams to support feature requests, bug fixes and develop tooling to facilitate automated internal releases of these projects . The focus of this role is also to ultimately grow up the contributor ladder into more influential positions in the cloud native community. Your work would be broad-reaching across the entire company and the cloud native ecosystem.

Success in the Role: What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months, you will work toward completing?

You will be expected to:

  • Independently contribute to Kubernetes to ensure high quality and predictable Kubernetes releases by working with SIG Release and SIG Testing. You would be working the Kubernetes release team to ensure that release blocking and informing jobs are green, flag regressions, file issues proactively for test failures and flakes and study of the overall test health from previous releases to understand and fix the tests for the current release. You would be working with SIG Testing on test infrastructure improvements to help improve the overall test pass rate.

  • Independently contribute to CNCF projects like containerd, etcd, coredns, etc to reduce bugs and security vulnerabilities and improve the projects’ overall stability.

  • Develop tooling and provide guidance to facilitate the production of automated internal releases of the above CNCF projects.

  • Write design proposals, participate in community meetings and mentor other contributors.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments or requirements will you be performing on a regular basis?

On a regular basis, you will

  • Design and implement features, triage, review and respond to incoming issues and pull requests, ensure high code quality and correctness through testing and factoring, and maintain documentation, release notes, etc.

  • Participate in community discussions in the Kubernetes and CNCF slack, mailing lists and meetings.

  • Collaborate in upstream and internal architecture planning and design meetings.

  • Collaborate with internal teams to solve issues involving CNCF projects.

  • Publicly discuss relevant topics through presentations, blog posts, webinars, etc.

  • Mentor, provide direction and guidance to junior engineers and new contributors to the project.

  • Work in a distributed team across multiple geographical locations.

What is leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?

The hiring manager for this role is Sudheesh Sudhakaran, Director of Engineering. Sudheesh joined VMware with the mission to create the TKG engineering team in India. He spent more than 12 years with VMware in various engineering roles prior to becoming the Head of Engineering and India MD for OVHcloud last 3 years.
