Do you like to lead a team of awesome DevOps engineers using your experience to inspire and give guidance?

Since the landscape is really too complex to manage the traditional way, it is our strategy to transform our R&D IT design infrastructure into “software-defined datacenters”. This transformation entails a different way of work and a different mind-set (DevOps, Site Reliability Engineering) to ensure that our IT services are reliable.

That’s why we are looking for a Technical Automation Architect? to strengthen the Automation platform team that are automating our IT landscape, so that we can manage it with best practices from software engineering (test driven development,  CI/CD pipelines, pair programming) and offer the IT services with the reliability which is required by our chip hardware design community.

The DevOps Automation Team at the High Tech Campus: where it all happens.

NXP IT has great ambitions, namely: moving HW design to the cloud (AWS), running our IT infrastructure as code, and adopting CICD pipelines by all IT teams. The DevOps Automation Platform team has a central role supporting 300+ IT support engineers world-wide to deliver their services completely automated, and using CICD pipelines. HW design work loads are optimized by the use of best practices from DevOps, and the Automation Platform plays a central role in this.

The Automation Platform is a tool box offering, and integrating technologies like GitLab, Ansible, RedHat Satellite, ServiceNow, Jira, Salt Stack, and Splunk. This way, IT teams can take end-to-end responsibility of their services, and run them in a true Agile mind set.

Our Team is located in Eindhoven, and consists of young people who are passionate about technology. They like to work from a growth mind set, and look continuously to rigorously improve themselves, and their services.

  • Work with tool vendors to understand their technology roadmaps

  • Align with R&D IT architects

  • Support the Automation Platform Team with a vision and a future direction

  • A Master degree with around 5 years of relevant experience

  • Experience with Git, Ansible, RedHat Satellite, Salt, Python, Docker, and AWS

  • A believer and evangelist of DevOps, CI/CD, and Cloud

  • An outgoing personality, who likes to connect with other people and teams
