About the Job

Software doesn’t do anyone any good until it’s
running in production. OPOWER is growing the team that builds and runs
the systems that connect our source code to our customers. We
continuously improve our build and deployment tools and create new tools
as our needs evolve. Our standards for the reliability, repeatability
and flexibility of those tools are high. Every improvement to the
process of build and release adds productivity to every member of the
engineering team.
You will design, implement, manage and use our
build and deploy processes in both the test and production environments.
You will define and build these tools so they deliver the right
software artifacts to the right place at the right time in a scalable
fashion. You will quickly assess the situation and choose the right
action when something goes wrong. You will look down the road to what
our process and tools need to be when we’re serving 10x as many
customers on 10x the infrastructure.
