With ongoing skill development and collaboration with some of the brightest minds in the field, you’ll be poised to make your mark. This is your chance to gain experience and stand out. With your know-how and access to one of the largest data sets available, you’ll make an impact and develop meaningful data-driven insights to inspire continuous innovation.

In this role you may be planning future cell locations for the latest high capacity Wireless 5G network or managing the high-capacity router network growth plans or optical fiber build plans that enable streaming video. To do this you will be analyzing data, working with vendors, and transforming information into a story, plan, and status, you communicate to cross functional teams and leaders to help drive key decisions and keep complex projects on track.

Technical Business Manager

As a technical business manager, you’ll guide our transformation and growth by leading technical projects, developing use cases, analyzing data sets, creating data visualizations, and developing strategies that extend across technology organizations. Your analytical skills and technical knowledge will help you assess strategic business plans, evaluate technology issues, promote process improvements, and drive automation solutions for your teams. In this role, you will be exposed to analytical tools and software development methodologies (Agile, DevOps, etc.), used to assess solutions, manage vendor relationships, develop technical sales strategies, document software requirements or user stories, lead Scrum teams of developers and manage small portfolios comprised of network elements, cloud environments, data stores, or media. You’ll have opportunities to present complex technical solutions to both management and technical teams.

As one of the world’s largest enterprises to move to software as a service (SaaS) technology, our systems & DevOps engineers develop, configure, maintain, and continuously improve the platforms used by our application developers, network engineers and business users to deliver results efficiently every day. You will dive deep and gain hands-on experience in one or many Operational Support Systems (OSS) such as ONAP (open-sourced orchestration engine for software-defined networks) as well as Business Support Systems (BSS) such as Salesforce, ServiceNow and one of the largest Microsoft Azure Public Clouds in the world. With a focus on solving problems through automation, you will use your knowledge in software engineering and operating systems to write scripts, configure software, engineer data migrations, ensure security, automate deployment, testing, and network processes, or enhance team velocity through CI/CD practices. As a new entrant into the field of DevOps and cloud software, you will receive the training, mentoring and support you need to accelerate from newbie to expert during your time with TDP. If you are interested in gaining deep, hands-on experience with large software ecosystems, and if you are interested to learn how systems and platforms operate at an enterprise scale, this is the position for you. Systems and DevOps engineers enjoy a curiosity for cloud-based platforms and tools, have working experience in administering networks, databases and/or operating systems such as Linux, interest in technology architecture, interest with low-code development platforms and scripting languages, as well as current experience in software development languages such as Java, SQL, and HTML/CSS.
