Product Owner for Cloud & Infrastructure Team
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR
If you are a product owner with a strong DevOps background or a DevOps engineer ready to step into the product owner role, we have the perfect thing for you!
The mission of the Cloud & Tools team is to enable the Porsche software development community to build and run beautiful, scalable, and reliable software applications with high availability. This mission is what made C&T the go-to team for advice, guidance, and support as well as an authority on security and best practices in connection to the cloud.
This also places the team in a unique position to push the boundaries and decrease time to market by constantly learning and automating the processes where possible.
So, if you have ever dreamed of being at the forefront of complex migrations, infrastructure planning, process automatization, and cloud infrastructure enablement, this is the team you want to join. And here’s a fun fact about the team – each member was born in a different country.
