What you’ll be doing...

As a developer metrics lead for the cloud transformation office, you will be driving the strategy for Verizon’s software delivery modernization programs, specifically our software delivery measurement strategy. A portion of the time will be spent ascertaining and documenting software delivery improvement strategies and roadmaps pertaining to DevOps metrics. A portion of time will be spent coding, deploying, and maintaining tools and services that are central to Verizon IT’s software delivery pipeline and IT modernization programs. Finally, a portion of time will be spent sharing material, demo’ing solutions, and generally mentoring the IT enterprise development community towards achieving these modernization objectives across the enterprise.

You will ideate and architect ways to measure product health metrics like: lead time for change, cycle time, deployments to production, mean time to recover, and change failure rate. Create an actionable strategy for collecting value stream analytics in critical Verizon products.

You will evangelize best software development practices that allow for measuring DevOps. You will apply cloud, SaaS, and micro-service delivery models to automate IT policies, processes, and procedures as part of continuous delivery build, test, deployment, and maintenance stages. Continuous delivery will be managed according to agile principles (scrum/Kanban, devops, CI/CD) and will require constant analysis of new requirements and new service integrations to achieve desirable outcomes. A portion of your development time and responsibilities will be to codify measures into the CI/CD pipeline to gauge developer/engineer experience, software delivery metrics, and success of the architecture initiatives listed above.
