Job Description

SoCode have partnered with a market leading electronics company who dominate their market space and due to their continued success are hoping to expand their Software Support and Release team. As the Software Support and Release Engineer your role will be to work in a close nit focussed team providing support to Linux or windows-based tools during the the full software development lifecycle. You will ideally be a junior to mid-level engineer with some experience within software applications, tools support and administration.

Your new role will be to support developers on tools for software version control, configuration, management, continuous builds, integrations, testing, analysis and delivery. The technology you can expect to be using include Ansible, Artifactory, FinalBuilder, Incredibuild, JIRA, Klocwork, Perforce, TeamCity, Visual Studio, etc.

Your new role will be to respond to tools support requests for incidents impacting normal development and investigate causes, to provide resolutions or a temporary workaround for a quick return. Part of your role will be to provide training to developers on these tools. A main technical requirement is being able to maintain and develop automated system test scripts and to develop / extended software software build and release tools using Python, Perl, java and JavaScript. Following on from this you will be asked to analyse build results, to look at ways to improve and then report this internally.

It would be beneficial but not necessary to also have some Linux or windows system administration experience, knowledge of SQL databases and be able to program within one or more of these languages: Bash, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PowerShell, Python, Ruby, etc.
