Who You’ll Work With

At Slalom Build we co-create modern technology and software products with clients who are ready to accelerate their digital transformation. We choose to imagine things made better, and then set out on a journey to realize what’s possible. By blending design, product engineering, analytics, and automation, we build the custom-built software and data products of tomorrow.


Who exactly is it that we’re looking for?

Are you boundlessly curious with a knack for problem solving? Do you have an appetite for technology, tinkering, and exploring new and exciting ways to build software products? Does the idea of working with like-minded specialists to help build and deploy amazing products sound interesting? Well then, you sound like a Builder, and you belong on our team!


Slalom is looking for a Senior Engineer to join our North America team in the Cloud, DevOps, and Security (CDS) capability. Our CDS engineers build the secure automation capabilities that enable our application and data engineers to unveil their products to the world. Our goal is to create the platform to make a product smart, secure, and fast, while minimizing toil.


If you are ready to bring your skills to work alongside our team of builders, we promise you’ll be working hands-on in the cloud with some of the newest technologies out there. You name it, we work on it, and so can you. You’ll build across AWS, GCP, and Azure using a wide variety of tools across the DevOps landscape.


What you’ll do

  • Develop and implement complex automation tasks and cloud architecture
  • Advocate DevOps culture, tooling, delivery methods, and cultural practices within Slalom and with our clients
  • Assist with estimating work efforts and story pointing required for each phase of an agile project
  • Provide technical guidance and mentoring to peers, less experienced engineers, and client personnel
  • Identify, qualify, and raise technical risks and issues
  • Help grow our culture of learning by taking part in and coordinating opportunities such as presenting at technical conferences, community groups, writing blog articles, and contributing to partner-coordinated workshops
  • Up to 25% travel required, which will primarily be in support of project delivery, but may include professional development and capability development opportunities

Your qualifications

  • 3+ years of progressively responsible software engineering and DevOps experience
  • Experience designing and implementing end-to-end Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines
  • Demonstrated production environment experience with at least one major public cloud (i.e., AWS, GCP, or Azure)
  • Experience in Configuration Management and Infrastructure-as-Code (e.g. Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, etc...)
  • Experience collaborating across multiple functional and/or technical teams to deliver an Agile-based project
  • Demonstrated growth mentality, enthusiasm about learning new technologies quickly and applying the gained knowledge to address practical business problems
  • Ability to communicate with clients on a business level and translate their needs into technical solutions
  • Experience delivering complex solutions utilizing common scripting/programming languages (e.g. Bash, PowerShell, Python, Go, etc...)
  • Demonstrated knowledge of fundamental cloud security (e.g., Identity and Access Management, firewalls, etc...)
