Founded on agile engineering, DevOps and cloud native principles these software platforms offer a full set of business capabilities across eCommerce, customer relationship management, quoting, product catalog, orchestration, service assurance and IDAM.

You'll be focussed on DevOps engineering of the strategic customer facing digital identity service that will allow customers to seamlessly log in and interact with both new and existing applications - building a truly common service integrated with our strategic authentication platform Azure AD B2C (Business to Consumer) to provide a standardised and seamless identity and access management capability across the Group.

You'll build the service with application developers in mind, enabling them to integrate authentication and identity into their apps, helped by self-serve application registration, common libraries and code samples and great API documentation. This will enable agile teams to deliver applications quickly, without worrying about authentication and identity.

You'll have the following responsibilities

  • Accountable for the engineering buildout of the strategic Identity component as part of the Simplify Common Components squad

  • May be accountable for leading a team of developers focussed on the build of strategic B2C authentication and identity services

  • Agreeing design patterns with the IDAM, Customer Ecosystem and Security Enterprise Architects that own the architectural domains impacted by IDAM

  • Forming part of the technical assessment team supporting RFPs and ITTs by conducting proof of concepts of vendor software platforms

  • Cloud native deployment architecture and design for digital identity and profile components. Including a focus on highly scalable and resilient architectures

  • Data model design and implementation for digital identity and profile

  • Accountable for engineering quality and secure development life cycle for the component, working with the Tribe security lead and security application engineers

Candidate Description

This role would suit someone who has experience working in an Agile environment, for example within a SCRUM team, with software engineering experience focussed on web technologies and containerisation - Java, Docker, Spring, Kubernetes, Canvas/Pivotal PaaS - and with a heavy focus on automation and CI/CD practises.

Having demonstrable experience of software architecture and design and some experience in developing and deploying software on a Cloud Service Provider - AWS and/or GCP would be a plus, as well as engineering experience covering existing B2C IDAM services - Siteminder, iCAP, Directory and Profile.

If you have experience in engineering systems using document-based databases (e.g. MongoDB) then this could also be the role for you.
