Job summary

The Red Hat Consulting team is looking for a Container Application Senior Consultant to join us. In this role, you will take part in our regional consulting operations or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and DevOps practices. You'll work remotely, drawing from your experience in the design and development of automated container platforms, deployment pipelines, and cloud-ready application architectures. As a Container Application Senior Consultant, you’ll learn to implement cloud-ready applications and deployment pipelines on large-scale container platform clusters using Java, Node.js, Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible by Red Hat, and OpenShift by Red Hat. You won’t be expected to know everything on day one, but your ability to learn new technology quickly will be essential.

Primary job responsibilities

  • Implement automated and containerized cloud application platform solutions; focus on application concerns, including cloud-ready distributed application architectures, migrating workloads to containers, containerized development workflows, and integrating container platforms with automated continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) pipelines
  • Learn new technologies quickly, including topics like container orchestration, container registries, container build strategies, and microservices on container platforms
  • Travel frequently to work alongside leading financial services, retail, telecommunications, and institutional clients
  • Share lessons learned, best practices, and how-tos with our internal and external communities of practice
  • Help other consultants learn DevOps and container technologies and processes
  • Apply new technologies, frameworks, or methodologies to containerized application development and deployment
  • Demonstrate technical leadership in container platforms and cloud application solutions by implementing complex, large-scale application containerization, microservices development, or “mono to micro” migration projects in challenging customer environments

Required skills

These are the skills you'll be expected to have going into the role:

  • 5+ years of technology experience like consulting, operations, help desk, service desk, development, and related internships
  • 3+ years of experience with Linux system administration, preferably Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or a derivative
  • 2+ years of platform scripting experience with the Ruby, Python, or Go languages
  • Excellent presentation and communication skills

Here's how your skill set will evolve and what you'll learn during your first year in the role:

  • After joining Red Hat, you will go through an intensive training program on Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift technologies and related DevOps topics.
  • At 2 months, be prepared to join a project team by acquiring the following:
    • understanding of how to stand up production-ready container platforms, integrated with existing enterprise systems
    • knowledge of how to deploy source code into running, scalable containers in automated fashion at enterprise scale
    • practical product experience
  • Within 6 months, be ready to implement a routine container platform project by attaining the following:
    • a successful, collaborative delivery of customer requirements using OpenShift by Red Hat
    • knowledge of how a customer use case can be developed into a project plan and how those requirements link to Red Hat technologies
    • understanding of how Red Hat technologies can transform software delivery (DevOps) practices at large organizations
  • Within 12 months, begin to demonstrate technical leadership in container platforms by accomplishing the following:
    • successfully implementing complex, large-scale container platform solutions in challenging customer environments
    • helping other consultants learn DevOps and container technologies and processes
