Release Manager

  • London
  • Engineering
  • Full-time

R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 members and partners across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, our open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version for enterprise usage.
Our global team of over 200 professionals in 13 countries is supported by over 2,000 technology, financial, and legal experts drawn from our global member base.
The Corda platform is already being used in industries from financial services to healthcare, shipping, insurance and more. It records, manages, executes institutions’ financial agreements in perfect synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.

We are looking for Release Managers to join an amazing group of technologists to contribute to the success of Corda, Corda Enterprise and other products in the Corda ecosystem. The role will coordinate releases of new versions of Corda products and patches for our global clients. Using the current release process as a starting point this role will evolve and rationalise how Corda software is released.
You will have a history of successfully shipping backend, platform or operating system software releases on time. You will have demonstrated the ability to work with multiple software engineering teams to release multiple complex products on different release cadences, and at times, simultaneously. You will have an intuition for what an excellent release process looks like backed up by real-world implementations. You will take pride in keeping the release ‘machine’ running smoothly and your attention to detail and passion for your craft means you want to ship high quality software releases which delight our clients every time. Most importantly you are excited and motivated by the challenge of shipping complex software to demanding enterprise clients and want to learn, improve, and grow as an engineer.

Responsibilities:

  • Own and execute the release process for all Corda products so they reliably build and ship on time
  • Enable QA Engineering and Beta clients by cutting Release Candidates and Betas
  • Collaborate with software engineers, project managers and support engineers to build and ship patches to tight deadlines
  • Be the final sanity check for production releases
  • Evolve, scale and improve how Corda products are built and shipped to increase velocity, efficiency and reliability

Qualifications:

  • Strong understanding of software configuration management systems and source code version control systems, ideally including Git branching strategies, and integration between GitHub and other systems, such as Jira
  • 2+ years experience in an enterprise level software release environment
  • Skilled in one or more scripting languages
  • Experience with build management tools, ideally TeamCity
  • Experience automating release and build processes
  • Proven problem solving skills and ability to work under pressure
