Your experience with installing and configuring Oracle Database, Oracle EBS, and application integrations will be considered a plus. Successful applicants must reside in a state where Red Hat is registered to do business.

  • Through automation, maintain operating system and application patching levels
  • Implement and improve robust system and application monitoring and metrics
  • Collaborate with application development teams, providing feedback and requests for enhancement (RFEs)
  • Improve services once they are live by measuring and optimizing performance, latency, and overall system health
  • Collaborate with internal and external teams on release management activities, including developing automated deployment and testing tools
  • Scale systems sustainably through mechanisms like automation and evolve systems by pushing for changes that improve reliability and velocity
  • Work as part of an agile team to proactively communicate status and complete deliverables on schedule
  • Propose and implement continuous improvement activities that motivate both improvements in service level objectives (SLOs) and improved quality-of-life for on-call team members
  • Standardize and document common DevOps procedures
  • Practice sustainable incident response, problem management, and change management methodologies
  • Contribute to the wider DevOps practice through knowledge sharing, mentoring, and collaboration
  • Participate in an on-call rotation
