  2. Your responsibility consists of understanding the infrastructure of each project and enable IBM Z emulation for building and testing. 
  3. The Open Source projects, you will focus on, are Container/Cloud oriented and the base for Kubernetes and Openshift. 
  4. You will become familiar with a lot of projects used in the Kubernetes field like (Kubernetes, Calico, Istio, Tekton, Terraform), Qemu, and various CI/CD tools like Jenkins and Travis. 
  5. This is a great opportunity to closely work with Open Source communities and IBM Linux teams, and have a first experience of how enterprise companies deal with Open Source.
