The team I manage at Red Hat, the Fedora Engineering team, includes people who work on Fedora system administration, release tooling, application development, and design. We have a job opening for an engineer to work with our infrastructure applications team on some challenging, fun, and forward-looking problems:
- Building and enhancing our tools for producing and shipping cloud images for a variety of providers (experience definitely required!)
- Working with the Fedora Cloud SIG and other community members to resolve issues related to the Fedora Cloud edition and associated tools and processes
- Collaborating with the rest of the Fedora team to automate, automate, automate All the Cloud Things
- Working with the rest of the team on non-Cloud related projects too, such as Fedora Hubs
- Staying abreast of and aligned with work going on throughout Red Hat related to Fedora and cloud technology
- As with all Fedora Engineering jobs, communicating openly and continually with the whole community, and building community around everything you do using open source best practices
Our team uses a lot of Python. We create code upstream that is widely consumable beyond just Fedora, and we deploy our work on both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora. We do that work openly: collaboration via git repositories, rapid and constant communication via IRC, frequent discussion through our mailing lists, and taking opportunities to gather and build community around our work. Simply put, we love open.
Although the description says the job is in Westford MA, USA, in reality we’re a highly distributed team. While this job is originally conceived as an entry- or journeyman-level engineer in the Westford (or possibly Raleigh NC) Red Hat office, we’re also open to experienced remotees outside the USA. The right candidate is a team player, fully engaged and passionately committed to delivering results with their colleagues, wherever they might be.
