Why might you be interested in this new opportunity?

You are passionate about working on the fastest-growing Kubernetes technology on a collaborative and high performing team. You enjoy taking an ever-changing mix of products/platforms and combining them together into reference solution architectures that will meet the stringent compliance requirements of VMware’s largest, most complex customers. You enjoy interacting with sales and services team members to accelerate, automate and simplify customers’ compliance efforts with VMware’s Kubernetes and developer-focused platforms.

What is the primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem you will be responsible for?  

VMware’s Modern Applications R&D Business Unit is looking for talented solution engineers to design compliant reference architectures to be leveraged by customers who deploy our developer-focused Kubernetes platforms and solutions for their critical production workloads.

What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?  

  • Develop reference architectures that meet the requirements of the FISMA, PCI-DSS, and HITRUST compliance frameworks for the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid line of products.

  • Partner with technical writers to document the details on how the solution meets each control in the compliance target and producing a sample Body of Evidence (BOE) for a full Federal Authority to Operate (ATO) package. 

  • Update and improve the reference architecture as the products evolve, new products are added, and as new compliance frameworks are added.

  • Work collaboratively with the sales, services, and product development teams to identify product enhancements or add-on capabilities needed to overcome compliance gaps, or to simplify/enhance the customers’ experience when achieving their required compliance targets.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

  • Deploying VMware products, partner products, and open-source software to multiple infrastructure environments (vSphere, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud) and integrating them into complete, production-ready solutions that meet stringent compliance requirements.

  • Writing scripts, automation tooling, and other technical tools along with documentation to help customers deploy the reference architecture in their environment. 

  • Collaborate daily with your teammates and technical writers using a variety of tools including Slack, Zoom, Teams, and Outlook.

  • Interact directly with customers along with sales and services teams to collect feedback on the reference architectures, identify improvements, and set priorities for additional compliance targets for which a reference architecture and the associated documentation is needed.
