SAP Concur Kubernetes Infrastructure Manager


We are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead the US branch of our international Container Ecosystem (Kubernetes) team. This is a true “DevOps” team, where the team is responsible for the design, development, testing, deployment, monitoring, and 24/7 operation of the services. You will run the day-to-day operations of the team, delivering on the product roadmap as well as the day-to-day operations of the platform itself. 


About the Platform 

The Kubernetes ecosystem for SAP Concur is large. Roughly 20,000 pods run on our infra. This is across about 60 clusters, comprised of about 1500 servers. This platform serves an internal R&D community of 1500 people and serves millions of customers worldwide. The platform runs across a variety of environments worldwide, spanning Concur datacenters and AWS. 


About the Roadmap 

In addition to the care and feeding of Kubernetes clusters, we are constantly working to evolve and improve the Container Ecosystem.  This includes: 

  • Enabling and facilitating the migration from legacy clusters to EKS

  • Review and improve day to day process though observation and retrospective. Note that collaborating with team members across various time zones brings unique challenges.  

  • Partner with the other Platform teams to ensure we are providing a cohesive platform for developers, and not a series of silos that are hobbled together.

  • Extensive experience in leading teams / larger projects with the ability to work with, understand, and motivate people 

  • Experience with cloud computing and SaaS
