The SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) Infrastructure team provides support for our IBM products/appliances (i.e. DataPower, MQ, IIB) that are widely used in the banking and financial services industry to provide services such as authentication, authorization, API management, message translation, and message queueing.  These services together represent the platform upon which web services can quickly and easily be developed and accessed/consumed both by internal applications or external clients.  The team ensures this platform is performing at peak capacity to avoid any business disruption.

As a SOA Systems Engineer, you will be part of a team involved in making sure these services are functioning properly through successful performance and coordination of activities involving triage/troubleshooting, patching, and software implementations/upgrades just to name a few.  If you love making everything run smoothly and knowing your work makes the business succeed, then this is the opportunity for you.  As you grow in technical expertise in one or more areas of specialization as well as leadership capabilities, your position and role within the team would advance and reflect this growth accordingly.  This is a subset of the overall responsibilities which involves other multiple initiatives as assigned by IT leadership.

  • Coordinate, escalate, resolve, and close issues from service requests to change management assigned to the SOA Infrastructure team.
  • Assist and champion triage and troubleshooting of production and non-production middleware/SOA technologies.
  • Perform patching, software implementation, and upgrades.

We’re excited to talk with you if:

  • You have at least 3 years of experience in a SOA infrastructure environment working with IBM technologies, specifically DataPower and/or API Connect.
