Job Description

Who are we?

At Intersection, we are at the forefront of the smart cities revolution. Our mission is to improve daily life in cities and public spaces, with products that bridge the digital and physical worlds by delivering connectivity, information and content to enrich our everyday journeys and elevate the urban experience.

We pair our human-centered methodology with cutting-edge technology to design, develop, deliver, and maintain excellent products and experiences in public space that deliver value to advertisers, cities, and consumers. Whether partnering with urban transit systems to revolutionize commuting and travel, with cities to transform how they connect with residents and visitors, or private developers to create unforgettable experiences in neighborhoods and districts, our solutions are scalable platforms on which our clients can build the future.

Intersection is backed by Alphabet through its urban technology company Sidewalk Labs.

What is the Role?

As a Senior Build and Release Engineer at Intersection, you will join a team working with scaling Intersection’s Link product and support tools as we expand to new cities and grow our fleet of Link kiosks. Starting in NYC, Link has now expanded to London and Philadelphia with more cities to come soon. You’ll be an integral part of the efforts to keep the quality of our product high as we shape, develop and handle our capabilities, implement and lead customer and product solutions, demonstrate creative capabilities, data, and infrastructure across owned and operated properties. This role requires you to have a firm grip on driving CI/CD goals in a fast paced environment in the cloud.

Your First Week

  • You will spend time with engineers and product getting up to speed, and test features from our backlog to get a sense of the current individual contributor experience. You will familiarize yourself with our CI/CD framework by committing changes to our code and seeing them deploy through the environment.
  • You will make your first contribution to the CI/CD framework.
  • You will pair with another engineer to support a release

Your First Month:

  • You will perform your first release, verifying it in staging, canary and production through our monitoring tools to ensure metrics and functionality are working as expected
  • You will own the build/release related stories from the backlog through to production
  • You will contribute to feature stories by identifying acceptance criteria, pairing with software engineers, and implementing identified acceptance criteria

Your First 3-6 Months:

  • You are fully integrated into the product development team working side by side with the software engineers, test engineers, product managers, designers and all other roles to contribute to delivering on the team’s commitments
  • You are learning new things, teaching others things you know,  identifying improvements, and taking the initiative to improve areas that you can
  • You are pairing with engineers to identify and implement improvements to our automation framework and deployment pipelines
  • You are maintaining and improving the build and release environment to ensure they are fast with robust and reliable test suites with visible results for failures and successes
  • You are working with the team to coordinate product releases frequently and learning and improving the process each time
  • You are mentoring junior test engineers to help them learn the fundamentals of test automation and CI/CD methodology and giving them confidence to take on more challenging engineering tasks

You are awesome for this role because:

  • You are passionate about software quality and are constantly looking for ways to improve quality without slowing things down. You believe quality is everyone’s job and you are there to help identify ways to build quality in from the beginning of the software lifecycle
  • You have hands-on experience building and improving CI/CD pipelines and supporting teams through the build and release process
  • You are committed to code quality, documentation, and test automation
  • Your have a track record of working with developers to improve automatic deployment processes.
  • You know how to deal with flakey environments.  You’ve done it before and you will tackle it with patience and perseverance so that the framework is reliable, robust and fast.
  • You are highly technical and comfortable writing code, especially Java based languages
  • You are excellent at communicating and collaborating, especially with folks who don't work building and releasing.

About our Platform:

Intersection’s platform is an ever-evolving mix of custom sensors, data analytics, 3rd-party services and solutions, and software written using: modern Javascript, Python, Scala, Ansible, AWS Services, and a little bit of plain grit.

Intersection is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Consistent with our mission of serving a diverse and global audience, we value a diverse workforce and inclusive culture which reflects that. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, disability, and veteran status.
