IBM Cloud Developer - Privileged Remote Access in Houston, Texas


Software Developers at IBM are the backbone of our strategic initiatives to design, code, test, and provide industry-leading solutions that make the world run today - planes and trains take off on time, bank transactions complete in the blink of an eye and the world remains safe because of the work our software developers do. Whether you are working on projects internally or for a client, software development is critical to the success of IBM and our clients worldwide. At IBM, you will use the latest software development tools, techniques and approaches and work with leading minds in the industry to build solutions you can be proud of.

Your Role and Responsibilities

The IBM Cloud Privileged Remote Access team is growing and looking to add Cloud Developers to its team of skilled architects and developers. In a recently formed team, you will be responsible for laying out the foundation of a new service designed to provide secure and controlled access to cloud resources for our customers and partners in regulated industries (including the financial services sector).

In their adoption of cloud, large enterprises need to transform their legacy tools and processes into cloud-age concepts. IBM is committed to helping its valued customers in making that transformation. For regulated industries (healthcare, payment, financial services, and others), one of the key aspect of compliance revolves around strict control and traceability of system access, and particularly changes made to them. Providing a readily-available privileged access management solution is a critical component to demonstrate that the configuration of cloud properties matches the baseline, but also enables detection of other unauthorized access to systems and data.

The right candidate particularly thrives in cloud programming, network, security, and has excellent spoken and written communication skills. Strong understanding of agile development and customer-facing experience are needed to hit the ground running. The role is perfect for someone with a broad mix of technical knowledge, and demonstrated background developing products and solutions for regulated industries.

  • Design and implement highly-available privileged access solutions that support secure access to IBM Cloud infrastructure and compute resources

  • Implement test-driven development practice & automate our pipelines in OpenShift and/or Kubernetes environments

  • Interact with developers from our internal and external communities to implement the required controls in a way that promotes automation, rapid intervention, and self-healing everywhere possible

  • Document and support our incrementally evolutive solution

Required Technical and Professional Expertise

  • 5+ years of experience as Cloud Developer role in Cloud Application Development

  • 5+ years Demonstrated software development skills (Python, Golang, C/C++,Java, Node.js, scripting, etc.)

  • Working knowledge of one or more key DevOps foundation tools: Tekton, Travis, Artifactory, and so on.

  • Hands-on experience with Container technologies: Kubernetes (IKS, GCE), RedHat OpenShift, Docker.

  • Hands-on experience with IBM Cloud (preferred), AWS, GCP & Azure, particularly in multi-cloud environments

  • Working knowledge with monitoring technologies: LogDNA, SysDig, Prometheus, Grafana etc.

  • High-level understanding of Cloud infrastructure & industry transformation

  • Solid organizational skills including attention to detail and multitasking skills

  • Excellent communication skills

Preferred Technical and Professional Expertise

  • Network Security or IT Security experience and/or certification (CISSP, or equivalent)

  • Network Certification (CCNE, PCNE, or equivalent)

  • Experience with geographically distributed teams
