What is the opportunity?
Everything is cool when you're part of an awesome team. We are looking to add a Core Banking DevOps Engineer to the API team at RBC. The API team delivers enterprise services to both internal applications and to external partners, built on a modern hybrid cloud platform using the latest micro-services architecture. We design, build and operate the services we own and we give our DevOps teams all the autonomy they need to move fast and innovate.

As a DevOps engineer, you will work as part of a small, autonomous team to deliver services for use in both internal and external applications. We are looking for top notch software engineers who are great team players and obsessive about the quality of their code and delivered service. We give our DevOps engineers the freedom to innovate in software design, development processes and automation so that they can deliver the very best result for our customers and continuously optimize the performance of their team. Our DevOps teams design, develop, test and support their services so you'll have the opportunity to be part of every stage of the process and take pride in delivering great new services with excellent reliability. We expect our DevOps engineers to take on significant personal responsibility for delivery but we do it in a fun team-oriented environment. As a DevOps engineer focused on core banking services, you will be part of an exciting journey to change how we deliver our services to customers and how we integrate with business partners. Customers are looking for richer, more personal and lower cost services every day and you will play a key role in delivering on those expectations. More than anything else, we're looking for people who want to be part of an elite engineering team and have the opportunity to learn and grow.
