Lead DevOps Engineer
Location: San Jose
Posted on: January 15, 2019
In the ANSYS Semiconductor Business Unit, we build software products that analyze power, power integrity and reliability effects on the world's most complex integrated circuits. We are looking for an experienced technical leader to improve our operations including software builds, testing, release, and installation.
Innovation in semiconductor design and manufacturing enables smaller device architectures with higher performance and energy efficiency for powering the smart product revolution. The physics associated with shrinking geometries, especially in the emerging 3-D IC, FinFET and stacked-die architectures, bring out design challenges related to power and reliability, affecting design closure. ANSYS simulation and modeling tools offer the sign-off accuracy and performance needed to ensure power noise integrity and reliability of even the most complex ICs, taking into account electromigration, thermal effects and electrostatic discharge phenomena.
Create and improve automation for builds, tests and software release generation.
Ensure that regular builds are running smoothly. Manage servers and storage needed for build and QA. Perform initial investigation of test failures and work with R&D to assign issues.
Investigate and implement ways to improve the configuration management processes and repository design.
Continuously improve the central builds and test runs, including turnaround time, resource usage, reliability and other metrics.
Manage code branches for each product family. Create customer release images and make these available in a central location.
Design and implement solutions to improve product quality.
Provide technical leadership on complex projects involving multiple engineers.
Evaluate multiple approaches to technical problems and be able to recommend one solution after considering limitations and challenges.
Work with team members to ensure that projects meet requirements on schedule. Ensure that automation is efficient, scalable, maintainable, extensible, robust and easy to understand.
Help product teams migrate to common flows for builds, tests and other tasks.
BS degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or related field, with seven years experience
Strong working knowledge of the Linux operating system
Experience with advanced configuration management systems, preferably Git. Knowledge of branching, merging, pull requests, multi-site development and other workflows.
Extensive experience with developing scripts for automating Linux/UNIX operations
Experience in building, testing and releasing commercial software products
Demonstrated technical leadership, and successful delivery of projects involving multiple engineers.
Ability to learn quickly, understand complex systems and to work closely with others across multiple teams
Ability to handle uncertainty, time pressure and large technical challenges
Ability to deliver high-quality work on time
Demonstrated skills in the following areas are a plus:
Experience in large-scale commercial software development and/or operations
Experience in the Electronic Design Automation industry
Experience with the Python programming language and/or C++.
Knowledge of basic Object-Oriented Design concepts
Familiarity with continuous integration flows and tools
Experience with job schedulers such as Platform LSF or Univa Grid Engine
Strong written and interpersonal skills, with the ability to work collaboratively in a geographically distributed organization.
Exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills.
