About Our Team: Tanzu Application Service for Kubernetes
Tanzu Application Service for Kubernetes is working on building a platform that brings the Cloud Foundry experience to Kubernetes. We aim to deliver the best, seamless Cloud Foundry experience to users, while also looking for ways to innovate and leverage Kubernetes as our infrastructure.
Things that our team care about include:
Building high-quality software. We practice test-driven development and prioritize continuous integration. We take pride in automating our processes and are constantly looking for ways to improve our development experience.
Empowerment and agency. We believe in collective ownership of not only our software, but also our processes and practices. We continuously seek to adapt agile methodologies to fit our needs. We are given a high-degree of autonomy to determine the technical direction and decisions to achieve product outcomes.
Being kind. We practice weekly retrospectives and value creating a psychologically-safe environment. We enjoy collaborating with each other, whether through pair programming or ad-hoc slack communication. Even when remote, we look for ways to engage and have fun as a team!
Growth and learning. We prioritize giving and receiving feedback. Mentorship is built into the bedrock of our team and we are constantly looking to create new opportunities for engineers. We are constantly learning and looking for ways to improve both individually and as a team.
The Tanzu Application Service for Kubernetes team is distributed across the US, with the majority of the team based in the West Coast.
In This Role
Our team uses the following tech stack in our day to day:
Platforms: Cloud Foundry & Kubernetes
Infrastructure: vSphere, GCP
We are looking for candidates that identify with the following:
You are keen to learn. Distributed systems are interesting to you, as well as how to set up testing for these environments. You are able to quickly ramp up in a new domain and on new technologies (and are excited by the prospect of doing so!).
You enjoy automating processes. The idea of setting up pipelines and frameworks for continuous delivery, releasing CVEs and critical fixes excites you.
You believe in ensuring the best support for our customers. Being on-call doesn't scare you and in fact, feels like a great way to engage with users!
You enjoy collaboration and are a kind, effective communicator. You find value in talking through architecture and implementation with others.
You value creating a healthy team culture. You share your thoughts in a way that fosters further conversation and leaves space for others. You look out for your teammates and make sure everyone has the support they need to contribute to our goals. Even in stressful times, you create psychological safety by teaching and modeling a blameless culture.
Additionally, we would prefer for candidates to have:
Experience in deploying on Kubernetes and/or Cloud Foundry. You understand the high-level architecture of the platforms and the value they each provide.
