Careers with CDK Global – where to next?
So who are we and what do we do?
CDK Global is the largest global provider of integrated information technology and digital marketing solutions to automotive dealerships and manufacturers in more than 100 countries worldwide for the world’s biggest car brands.  Although we operate on a global scale, we are small by comparison and that is a good thing. It means that we are still a business where every person matters and where anyone can make an impact on our growth and success. We have opportunities in a wide range of business areas so wherever in the world you join us, you will get the support, training and tools you need to make significant steps forward in your career.


Job Title: Container Platform Engineer

Power the Possibilities
The CDK Global technology team is looking for collaborative innovators who are passionate about making their mark on emerging enterprise software products. We’re building and developing cloud technology for the automotive retail industry
that will change the landscape for automotive dealers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the customers they serve.

Be Part of Something Bigger
Each year, more than three percent of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) is attributed to the auto industry, which flows through our customer, the auto dealer. It’s time you joined an evolving marketplace where research and development
investment is measured in the tens of billions. It’s time you were a part of something bigger.

We’re expanding our workforce – engineers, architects, developers and more – onboarding early adopters who can optimize, pivot and keep pace with ever-evolving development roadmaps and applications.

Join Our Team
Growth potential, flexibility and material impact on the success and quality of a next-gen, enterprise software product make CDK an excellent choice for those who thrive in challenging, fast-paced engineering environments.
The possibilities for impact are endless. We have exceptional opportunities to evolve our industry by driving change through new technology.

If you’re ready for high-impact, you’re ready for CDK.

  • The CDK Container Platform Operations team is the team that delivers, maintains and improves our strategic, custom-developed platform as a service (PaaS) solution, including the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) toolchain, for multiple agile application teams delivering custom-built software.
  • Platform ops is needed to achieve economies of scale in a DevOps environment in which product delivery teams are responsible for deployment and operations of their own applications. A shared platform cuts down on duplication of technology and focuses expertise.
  • The container platform is a product used by developers. It is software-defined and must operate to the standard required to protect the organization while allowing the development teams to move fast. This means the platform ops team will be a cross-functional team combining Infrastructure professionals and developers with other expertise, such as security and DBA.

  • 75% DevOps / Infrastructure
  • 25% Full Stack Development
  • Develop products and services, build and maintain the container platform to support CDK application teams delivering our customer-built software
  • Collaborate with developers, product managers and other participants in the development of the solutions

  • Choose the right tools in order to build the solution according to the requirements
  • Communicate clearly about any problems you encounter and ask question when stuck
  • Plan and prioritize your own work
  • See the “bigger picture” – always evaluate how a decision will impact the future
  • Build and deploy the application code and transform it to a CI/CD pipeline by means of automation
  • Debug and find potential problems in code
