In this episode of the Puppet Labs Podcast, I was joined by Kenn Hussey, Michelle Johansen and Heidi Pio to talk about how project managers help bridge the gap between developers and operations.
For example, our recent migration from Redmine to JIRA has required extensive collaboration between our developers and our operations teams across many months to make sure that we could complete the migration without disrupting work on our products.
We also have quite a few cross-functional teams between engineering and operations, pulled together to handle issues with developer infrastructure, security concerns and much more on an ad hoc basis. The Puppet Forge engineering team has a representative from our operations team who attends its meetings. Across all of our projects, we try to get operations involved at the very beginning of each project.
For much more about project management and DevOps, please have a listen! You can also check our many other recent podcasts by visiting our podcast page or subscribing in your favorite podcast tool.
If all of this sounds interesting and you want to join us, we are also hiring two new project managers, an Engineering Project Manager and a Technical Operations Project Manager. Come work with us, we have whiskey.
