We are an established and distributed team in the Cox Automotive Data Solutions Group. Our primary responsibility is the development of infrastructure, security, networking, and application delivery automation tools and patterns that put the 12-factor app principles into practice. Our goal is to enable engineers to develop solutions from ideas into production code in a fast, secure, and repeatable manner, and provide guidance and insight into the best practices of software engineering. We use a Kanban methodology for delivery tracking, open-source methods to encourage collaborative software design, and maintain a reputation as thought leaders within our organization.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Cox Automotive you will:

  • Automate the infrastructure, security, networking, and application delivery needs of multiple engineering teams.

  • Provide your expertise to the same teams regarding the support and maintenance of cloud and on-prem resources.

  • Participate in all aspects of the Software Delivery Lifecycle, from clarifying requirements to collaborating on architectural design, creating technical documentation, programming, performing manual and automated testing, building, deploying, validating, monitoring, and operational support.

  • Participate in evaluations of new technologies, platforms, frameworks, and techniques, and collaborate with your peers to help shape the direction of the engineering group.

  • Take an active role in identifying and prioritizing opportunities for investment in the functional and non-functional requirements of the system.

We require:

  • A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related field and four years of relevant experience or a Master's degree in Computer Science or related field and two years of experience or eight years of relevant experience.

  • Python

  • Cloud Server administration and maintenance.

  • RDBMS experience, including schema design and performance optimization.

  • CI/CD pipeline delivery and pipeline automation experience.

  • Experience developing test coverage for applications.

  • Experience with Production Monitoring tools like cloud logs, metrics, application/db analytics for debugging, performance optimization, and maintaining SLAs.

We are impressed by:

  • Openness to feedback and ability to creatively adapt multiple ideas into a solution.

  • Ability to take direction as well as provide direction on potential solutions.

  • Analytical skills and the ability to break problems down into simpler challenges that solve a more complex whole.

  • Familiarity with producing technical writing, including diagramming techniques.

  • A desire to succeed as a team and contribute to a culture of continuous improvement and growth

  • Experience with Kanban, LEAN, and the 12-Factor app methodologies

  • Public speaking skills
