Description

Background

We are primarily looking for candidates with Kubernetes knowledge, infra-as-a-code tool like Terraform, general Cloud native application development knowledge (for workbench) and any programming language like python, java or like. The resources were looking for will be developers and working in our current team to establish the Event Mesh in INGKA (we are looking for in total 3 resources).

 

The scope of the consultants is to assist IKEA in:

We need to keep a Service Level 1 standard on the Event management/mesh service offering. The service model is that the Control Plane (operational patching, updates etc.) is taken care by Solace and Data Plane (messages from INGKA systems) is within IKEA-owned VPCs and Data Centres, that is, private. This model is balanced between less operational activities for INGKA, however with control of data flowing through the brokers for security/regulatory reasons.
 
Since the model requires an operational collaboration between Solace and INGKA as the broker services are running on top of IKEA-owned infrastructure, the activities needed to be performed by INGKA support team are as follows:
Monitoring the Solace broker services and activities around the Mesh brokers for on-premise: If incidents/errors detected in Solace Cloud dashboard/alerting, then INGKA support resource will get notified by Solace and depending on the type of error can validate, verify, or forward incident to for example application teams like ISOM that produces the events to the local mesh broker or if an issue with underlying OpenShift infra it would be forwarded to OpenShift team. Its needs collaboration with multiple INGKA teams and Solace.
 
For public cloud:
INGKA event management support team is owing the public cloud infra (like managed Kubernetes etc, VPCs etc) and any error resulting on that front will have to be fixed and resolved by that team. Act as first line production support contact for INGKA product teams for any issues related to the Event Mesh service
 
Our Local team can handle the support activities needed initially throughout normal working hours but to cover 24/7 going forward.
 
This support setup needs to be in place as soon as possible, as we proceed towards production.
 
We also need to train the support team to understand the services, so the sooner its onboarded the better to meet the expectation as requested from us to our internal INGKA customers.
