This position directly interfaces with front-end and back-end developers within Operations and Engineering disciplines as part of a Dev-Ops style team, responding not only to in-the-moment indications of potential problems but also making recommendations to improve resiliency and performance across all tiers of our applications. The role also works directly with various technical operations groups across the greater Best Buy Enterprise in order to sustain high-availability of various IT services consumed by our applications. In addition to technical troubleshooting and incident management, this position will contribute to maintaining and developing methods of visualizing data to support quick identification and diagnosis of performance data collected via our vast toolset.

Ideal candidates will have a broad understanding of all aspects of web technologies, e-commerce applications, monitoring, and be comfortable performing qualitative analysis on various sets of data.

  • Strong facilitation and incident management skills
  • Strong experience with the software development lifecycle
  • Ability to work cross-functionally and influence without authority
