The Software Engineering team is responsible for defining and implementing standards and practices to improve our software delivery practice as well as providing metrics on all aspects of software delivery to IT and helping IT shift to a DevOps-oriented culture.
The Principal Software Engineer (DevOps) position is a leadership role on the Software Engineering team and will be responsible for helping develop and amplify DevOps at TDS. There is a strong technical component to this position and a successful candidate should be both proficient with the full DevOps toolchain and also bring a depth of experience to the role to help guide the team to making smart decisions. Additionally, this candidate should also be comfortable with the organizational ideas that underpin DevOps, e.g., the "three ways", lean, kaizen, blameless post-mortems, etc. and their role in building a culture which supports DevOps.
The Software Engineering team is both small and new. The Principal position will provide the right candidate with an opportunity to shape the direction of software development at TDS Telecom in ways that likely wouldn't be possible in larger companies with fully established DevOps teams and practices. Because of the influence that this role will have, the Software Engineering team has set a high bar for hiring. So, if you have a solid DevOps background, good leadership skills, and are ready to be challenged, we would love to talk with you.
