We inspire, challenge and respect every one of our over 100,000 employees. We also provide them with unparalleled growth and development opportunities. We can’t wait for you to discover this for yourself.

Dell’s IEO (Infrastructure Engineering & Operations) organization provides a set of shared services for engineering labs and engineering teams across all divisions of ISG, supporting product development.  The Security & Configuration Management Services Team within IEO has team members in Russia and Ireland and is responsible for delivering security automation for multiple device types in engineering labs across the globe.  Our goal is to provide an enterprise-level service to device users and lab managers.  This enables them to secure their devices from vulnerabilities in a self-service manner at a time of their choosing, whether on a per device level or in bulk. Although the service leverages multiple underlying technologies to achieve its goal it will be presented seamlessly as a single service and single experience to users and lab managers.

We need a Principal System Quality Engineer who will help testing a new service, comprised of several microservices and 3rd party System Management products.
