Senior Infrastructure Leader

 

SUMMARY

Our industry is starting to go through a transformational shift and we intend to lead it. As the talent becomes the main differentiator between failure and success organizations must attract, engage and develop their people more than ever. To do so, they need powerful and sophisticated tools, which take the pain out of HR management and empower employees & people leaders. That is where we come in.

Lifion by ADP is expanding our startup style operation in NYC in order to accelerate new technical innovation across UI, Search, Platform Technology, IAAS, Big Data, Social, etc. The concept and vision behind the strategy is "Innovate like a Startup" with the goal of delivering highly automated, intelligent and predictive solutions to the market. Our goal is to have specialized teams of superstars focused in these areas to keep pace with market trends and quickly incubate and deliver capabilities that dramatically increase the value of our solutions for clients.

As a Director/Sr. Directorof Infrastructure Engineering you will take ownership of all aspects of the infrastructure roadmap and drive execution of it across the program. You will work with the SRE and Infrastructure Support leaders to ensure all three divisions are on the same page and will also influence their roadmap and practices. You will work with other RnD leaders to ensure best engineering practices are incorporated in software architecture to make your job of building out the Infrastructure a lot easier.

You think about scale and will be responsible to put in place a strategy to scale up the system to support millions of users from across the globe.

You think in terms of infrastructure as code and testing as a first-class citizen. You can pipe, grep, and sed your way through any problem with the best of them. You are very opinionated about patterns and practices but pragmatic in your discourse and implementation. You have experience building fully automated, highly elastic, cloud-orchestrated platforms over various IaaS providers like AWS, GCE, and / or Azure, or using on-premise solutions like OpenStack. You see containers as the future of software deployments and are familiar with how to orchestrate them with frameworks like Docker Engine, Mesos, and/or Kubernetes. There is a fine line between configuration management and immutable infrastructure and you know how to walk it.  You have a strong grasp of the concept of Infrastructure as Code and believe strongly in it.  You are data-driven, and understand that data, more than intuition is the key to building great infrastructure.
