VIEW JOBS 7/16/2021 12:00:00 AM 2021-10-14T00:00 In 2019 HP Print launched a broad initiative to create a unified User-Centric Digital Ecosystem (UCDE), with the following mission: Lead the creation of HP's pan print platform upon which world-class solutions and experiences are developed and deployed; providing continuous delivery of value to our customers. The first suite of services released to the market in Fall of 2020 was HP+. The technical architecture of UCDE consists of print devices, mobile apps, web front ends, and multiple cloud hosted services that work in concert to provide a diverse set of solutions to HP's print customers. The Cloud Infrastructure and Automation organization (CIA) provides support services to solution teams across UCDE in the areas of Infrastructure, Tools, Business Operations, Security Services, and other operational services. For this role, we are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer who can work with teams across the UCDE.
