Unlock Your Career Potential: Technology at ADP. Do you enjoy exporing, identifying and inspiring the future of the workplace and the lives of millions of people? At ADP, the world's largest B2B cloud company, our Technology team is comprised of brilliant engineers, architects, data scientists, infrastructure experts, and more. We were first in our industry to offer a SaaS solution and continue to push the envelope utilizing the latest operating platforms to deliver the highly automated, intelligent and predictive solutions that are redefining what is possible. Named one of Forbes' \"Most Innovative Companies\" and one of Computerworld's \"100 Best Places to Work in IT\", we are committed to leading the way in product development and research, empowering you to bring to life the latest innovations that will forever change the way businesses manage their most vital asset, employees.

The DevOps Engineer is responsible for delivering an end-to-end solution from initial concept through finished solution in the area of automated build, deployment, monitoring, and server infrastructure. You'll need the ability to quickly understand needs, from a user perspective, and move from there to a working prototype that captures the essence of what the product should be. The ability to not only code and configure tools, but also assemble and integrate technology across disparate platforms is critical to success. This includes a deep understanding of systems, data structures, modern scripting and enterprise level languages as well as open source tools that can and should be leveraged to solve problems. You'll work in a rapid environment where there aren't always clear specifications or rules about how something should be done, where it's up to you to figure things out and keep things moving.

We strive for every interaction to be driven by our CORE values: Insightful Expertise, Integrity is Everything, Service Excellence, Inspiring Innovation, Each Person Counts, Results-Driven, & Social Responsibility.


  • Write code, integrate systems and build configurations to drive and innovate around our server based platform across the organization.
  • Leverage open technology such as Docker, Swarm, Saltstack, Bash, JavaScript, Python, Git, Jenkins, Linux, HAProxy, AWS Cloud, ELK, Java, Kafka, MongoDB, Zookeeper, and plenty of others
  • Integrate systems using a wide variety of protocols like REST, SOAP, MQ, JSON and others
  • Design and build automated code deployment systems that simplify development work and make our work more consistent and predictable. You'll do this by orchestrating environment deployment from OS all the way through the applications stack, using tools such as Docker, Saltstack, Jenkins, and many others
  • Exhibit a deep understanding of server virtualization, networking and storage ensuring that the solution scales and performs with high availability and uptime
  • Create mechanisms/architectures that enable rapid recovery, repair and cleanup of faulty migrations with good understanding of fault tolerance and failure domains
  • Identify opportunities to deliver self service capability for the most common infrastructure and application management tasks
  • Create automated tests that easily plug into our automated code pipeline
  • Provide detailed levels of monitoring across the application stack
  • Help mentor other engineers and technical analysts
  • Plan sprints within your project team to keep yourself and the team moving forward
  • Move fast, break things, and determine how to fix them


You're someone who wants to influence your own development. You're not intimidated by technology; you know how to leverage it to build great products. Your skills are broad --scripting, user experience, integration, database, even business domains -- and you easily transition between those. You like to leverage modern technology and can quickly assemble it to create solutions that aren't over-engineered. You're also comfortable in a role where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but just a starting point.
