You have a passion for high-quality, reliable and maintainable code. You’re comfortable working side by side with product managers, designers, and clients, making decisions together in order to quickly deliver valuable working software to clients and their users. You’re agile and retrospective, and not afraid to identify what we’re doing wrong so we can fix it, and what we're doing right so we can improve on it. Above all, you judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of our customers.
What You’ll Be Doing
You will be working on the VMware Tanzu Labs Services team, helping customer product teams to design and deliver modern, mission-critical, cloud-native applications serving a variety of missions and user needs.
As a software engineer, you will pair daily with client software engineers, coaching them in Extreme Programming (XP) methodologies and approaches while helping them to define, validate, communicate, and execute product vision and strategy. You will work with a team of product managers, designers, and engineers to enable your client team to go fast forever.
In the past, we have invited clients to collaborate with us in our office or traveled to client sites to build relationships with our clients in person and expect to have some in-person collaboration in the future. All of our product team positions are highly collaborative consulting roles, with 85-90% of time spent in direct, 1:1 pairing or larger team collaboration. During the COVID-19 crisis, this collaboration is all managed remotely, with the expectation that face-to-face engagement in a VMware Tanzu Labs office will pick up again once the crisis is resolved.
