Our client is seeking a Release Engineer with a strong background in software build and release engineering processes. This includes supporting Gitflow-based source control management for all stages of the software lifecycle including development, QA, and deployment. This position has strong DevOps growth potential in assisting with construction and maintenance of our CI/CD infrastructure for both web and mobile environments as well as supporting our day-to-day cloud infrastructure needs.
Strong background in source code methodologies (particularly gitflow) with proven experience with complex branch management, source-code conflict resolution, and managing multiple branches and environments simultaneously.
Demonstrated proficiency and experience working with technologies that support highly efficient software delivery including source-control, build, automation, deployment, and monitoring tools.

Communication- You're an eloquent speaker who can explain anything to everyone. You are also a clear and concise writer.
Critical thinking - You love logic and data. Thinking strategically is your forte. You enjoy diagnosing complex problems and formulating plans of attack to resolve them. You enjoy an environment where everyone is encouraged to add value at the most strategic level.
Cultural fit - You have a craving to fit in a fast-paced, high-integrity, low hand-holding environment (but you will get a hug if you need it). EQ as important as IQ. Bullies need not apply. You want to help bring our "What If" philosophy to life.
