You will be a technical leader on the team, having a large amount of input on technical design decisions and serving as a liaison to our customers, primarily other development teams. On our team, leadership is earned and not appointed; your communication and collaboration skills are just as important-if not more important-than your technical skills.

The Project:

Comcast is in the process of consolidating its software build and delivery solution to a single centrally managed platform. This platform will be used to enable the adoption of best current practices pertaining to the building, testing and deploying of software assets across Comcast's 800+ software development teams.

The CAP Team:

  • We value usable and working solutions now over a perfect solution later
  • We value using good enough open source software over perfect commercial ?software
  • We value diversity of opinion over group consensus
  • We value being able to pursue a plan together over everyone agreeing that ?the plan is the best one
  • We value context and responsibility over management visibility and ?direction
  • We start from the assumption that someone, somewhere has already figured out a solution to this problem; we value using their results over rediscovering them ourselves
  • We value actively and humbly seeking and appreciating honest feedback over preserving our egos
  • We value making decisions with research and reason over tradition or fear; ?we are fans of the scientific method
  • We value building it right over building it fast


In addition to the project specific responsibilities described above:

  • Leading joint design and architecture sessions

  • Writing appropriate levels of documentation
  • Mentoring colleagues at all skill levels
  • Building effective deployment and monitoring systems

  • Excellent software development skills, in a diverse set of programming styles (procedural, objected-oriented, functional)
  • Experience with Go, Bosh, Ansible and Terraform preferred

  • Experience developing service-oriented architectures and an understanding of design for scalability, performance and reliability.
  • Familiarity with deployment and debugging in Linux container environments
  • Experience with high-scale, distributed web service development (hands-on experience with RESTful web services)
