State Street

Senior DevOp/Kubernetes Engineer - Boston, Massachusetts

Devops in Boston, MA

Posted 2019-11-27

Global Link, a division of State Street Global Market, is a leader in providing electronic trading platforms for multiple asset classes. Our platforms are used by 19 of the top 20 largest asset managers to execute trades, as well as manage post trade settlement processes.

We build and run multiple electronic trading platforms. Currently these are mostly big monolithic applications running on-premise. We have embarked on a major re-architecture effort towards microservices architecture on top of a new security platform. We plan to containerize these services and deploy to Kubernetes clusters, starting on-premise but may move to a public cloud later, or both with a hybrid strategy.

We are looking for a passionate DevOp engineer to help us build and run the new infrastructure. The ideal candidate is someone with expert working experience with Kubernetes. Knowledge and experience with GitOps/security/SSO/OpenID Connect/SAML is a BIG plus.

Excellent knowledge and experience building and maintaining production systems using on-premise Kubernetes.
