Description and Requirements

At Lenovo, we Never Stand Still. Every day, every employee at Lenovo is focused on moving forward, rejecting traditional limits, and always seeking a better way. The Lenovo Cloud and Software (CSW) Group is responsible for the architecture and technical direction of our cloud software products and solutions. We work closely with Product Engineering Project Management and Business Strategy teams to help shape the product offering, resolving key technical and strategic issues, and ensuring the products implemented are aligned with our architectural and business requirements.

Sr. SW Engineers in CSW are expected to have real-world experience building product, software engineering practices, and domain knowledge in software networking and edge computing —sufficient to build informed opinions and shape our product direction and strategy.

In addition, you will be called on to work with other Lenovo product teams, partners, and customers to ensure our products are interoperable, maintain clean separation of concerns, and conform to relevant industry standards. Thus, you are expected to have the flexibility of mind, and communication skills necessary, to resolve mutually beneficial points of intersection with other products and solutions.

In this role, you will create and document designs, attend design and security reviews, work with other product engineering teams to reconcile alignment with other solutions, work across business units to align strategic relationships, address industry standards activities, work with open-source communities, evangelize Lenovo and our offerings through media, and participate in executive reviews.
