Apple Desktop Engineer
This role resides in one of the newly established IT Infrastructure Delivery (ITID) agile engineering pods within the End User as a Platform (EUaaS) area, specifically the Apple Desktop pod. The intent of these new engineering pods is to increase the infrastructure automation provided to HSBC staff and to deliver infrastructure products and services in an agile manner.
The Apple Desktop engineering prod will deliver HSBC’s build of the Mac OS X operating system to our managed Apple devices, review and define the Apple hardware used for our defined user stories, define the configuration to be applied to these devices, manage and control these devices and be accountable for all engineering work on the managed OS X build.
In 2020 we are expecting all engineering pods to be in setup mode so the focus will be to complete knowledge transfer from other HSBC locations and initiating the various streams of work that will deliver extra levels of automation whilst moving to a more agile way of working. An appropriate agile way-of-working will be implemented, likely to be Scrum or Kanban.
The Apple Desktop Engineering role will work within the pod to achieve the strategic aims of ITID and the EUaaS platform by delivering products and services in an agile manner. The role will take direction from the defined pod leader or assigned team leader and will be expected to work closely with other members of the pod.
Whilst it will have no formal line management duties, it will be expected that the role will provide guidance to the more junior members of the team and pod.
