Job Description

Are you looking to pursue a new challenge, founded in Teamwork, Creativity and Excellence? BP is embarking on a significant agenda to modernise itself and we are keen for highly skilled, enthusiastic people to be part of the team. All Platform Engineer roles in the company are part of a wider collaborative community which is a key aspect of this phenomenal opportunity. We are at the forefront of some of the most creative Platform enterprise implementations currently occurring. Just as you believe in new approaches, you recognize that safe, reliable and fit services depend on good operational discipline. You like working at-pace but you love doing it right and then automating what you've done. You will operate in a dynamic and engineering focused environment, with the resources of the world's largest IT department and leading IT vendors at your fingertips. You are confident and comfortable working across cultures and always believe in learning new platforms, approaches and techniques. As a leader you will motivate and inspire team members to deliver value, always stay ahead of new technologies and integrate those technologies into their solutions. The choices you make will shape our standards, development methodologies and inform how we integrate with the rest of the enterprise.

You will be leading a small, multi-functional team. You will play an integral role in growing the team of architects, engineers, developers and external partners while demonstrating your leadership values through delegation, motivation and trust. You will not just lead through influencing, but you will "do". Our culture is exploring, thinking and doing, and you will live this every single day.

From an Engineering perspective you will be accountable for the crafting, developing and supporting application solutions (assist in production issue resolution). You will also re-engineer highly complex program components including code generation and maximise reuse across all existing assets

You will be working across a global community assisting post-production deployment and leading decisions regarding the integration of software packages and programs. Your ability to rapidly learn technologies and integrate them into an overall vision for the team helps set you apart. In this role, you will need to define and implement our Azure digital strategy for all business units in BP Downstream, allowing for maximum reuse.

You will have a Bachelor's (or higher) degree from a recognized institute of higher learning, ideally focused in Computer Science, MIS/IT, Mathematics or a hard science. Significant experience working in a Cloud Environment using applications in Cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure is essential along with experience in writing code and executing technical, analytical and configuration tasks. Expert skills in the Azure suite of products including design, development and Deployment are required and you will also be an expert in cloud - on-premise integrations. We really want people with experience in code versioning (such as GIT), automated deployment processes (such as Jenkins), experience in Agile (such SCRUM or KANBAN), appreciation of Agile software (such as JIRA or Team Foundation Server).

BP is a diverse and inclusive workplace. We are proud of our fairness, equal opportunity and meritocracy which allows our employees to reach their full potential.
