Essilor of America, Inc. (Essilor), is the leading manufacturer and wholesaler of prescription lenses in the United States. 

We currently have a DevOps Manager career opportunity at our Dallas, TX location.



For 170 years the Essilor Group has served the public by creating the standard of quality in ophthalmic lenses. More recently, through Essilor's ecosystem of web properties, we also serve hundreds of millions of digital consumers.   As the senior manager of our devops organization you will lead the creation of the tools, processes and tool chains that Essilor Digital uses to build, deploy, monitor, and maintain software.  We seek an experienced hands-on manager with strong technical acumen to own our CI/CD pipelines and define our level 2 support strategy. The ideal candidate has strong communication, leadership and interpersonal skills and a true passion for engineering. Qualified candidates have created CI/CD pipelines to deploy containerized services and PaaS configuration to the cloud (AWS, Azure, and/or Kubernetes environments).   In addition to the primary responsibility of CI/CD, the manager will develop strategies for and delegate traditional operations activities such as environment monitoring, troubleshooting, and provisioning.   While we currently uses Jenkins and GitHub for CI/CD, we will look to you to define our go forward strategy and help us embrace emerging technology trends.  To summarize, the position is deeply technical and hands on but we will equip you with the resources you need to delegate tasks effectively and execute your DevOps vision.
