Senior DevOps Engineer


At Cognizant Digital Engineering, we ideate and develop innovative software solutions with our clients. Our software development approach follows a Lean-Agile process with DevOps culture. Working in Cognizant Digital Engineering is fast paced and exhilarating.

At Cognizant Digital Engineering, we believe that a small cross functional team made up of a Product Manager, an Architect, pairs of Developers, and the necessary domain experts like UI/UX designers or Big Data Analysts, can build software faster and with higher quality than having independently working silos of skills. A small team can also build empathy for each other, increasing their ability to react to change coming from either the client, external market realities, or from the end user as we consistently execute through build-measure-learn cycles.
