Position at Wind River

Wind River believes that some things are so important they simply cannot fail. That is why we exist. Wind River software has been running the computing systems of the most important critical infrastructure that demand the highest standards for safety, security, performance, and reliability. Found in more than 2 billion devices, Wind River is pioneering edge compute technologies to accelerate the evolution from automated devices to autonomous systems and we have a place for you!


Wind River Systems is seeking an experienced DevOps engineer for the position of Wind River Cloud DevOps Prime, to drive the introduction of a best in class DevOps pipeline for the Wind River Cloud product.

We have some exciting technologies that we get to work with at Wind River.  Within the Wind River Cloud team, we have the opportunity to work with large-scale projects like Kubernetes, Docker and OpenStack.  These are vibrant and fast-paced Open Source technologies that are in high demand from our customers. 

Wind River Cloud has adopted these technologies into the core of our product, which is driving us to find experienced and high-performing individuals that can learn and contribute to these container and virtualization solutions.  In addition, Wind River Cloud is a leading contributor to the StarlingX project, to manage and maintain the critical infrastructure for highly distributed Edge solutions, including 5G, Autonomous Vehicles, Industrial Automation and Augmented Reality. 

Wind River contributes and builds upon the work within StarlingX to ensure it meets the demands of these critical applications.  Finally, managing the highly fluid and distributed architecture requires new insights to the operational performance of the system.  This has given rise to the introduction of leading-edge analytics that are being designed to provide the needed visibility and observability to the platform.  Analytics is bringing new and innovative technologies into the Wind River Cloud product portfolio, expanding on the already broad set of software that we get to work on within the highly skilled development team.
