Position Overview:

Senior IT Operations Engineer

As Senior IT Operations Engineers are well-experienced professionals, they don't spend most of their time completing "simple" IT tasks. On the other side, they are usually in charge of delegating these duties effectively, regarding the schedule and company's resources. They also make sure that all delegated tasks are executed promptly and as required. Besides delegation, they also hire and train new IT personnel, focus on complex operations issues, and participate in meetings with managers and executives.

Company Overview:
Oracle

With more than 10,000 employees, presence in over 175 countries, and revenue of $10+ billion (USD) per year, Oracle belongs to the small group of the biggest technology companies in the world. Their software solutions are being used by hundreds of thousands of companies in various industries. Therefore, it goes without saying that if you get a job at Oracle, you will be working with the smartest people and most innovative technologies in the world.

How to write your own Senior IT Operations Engineer resume?

1. Explain your work responsibilities and put them into numbers

Instead of only briefly describing all your job duties, show to your potential employer what you were in charge of and which specific improvements you brought to your last team or company. After defining these for yourself, try to quantify most of them to make them attract attention. They will help you and your resume to stand out in the pile of thousands of resumes and job applications. They will also show to the Hiring Managers that you are a pro-active individual who likes to take action and lead projects to a successful finish. 

Senior IT Operations Engineer Responsibilities Example

  • "I Implemented a Jenkins system. Providing continuous integration and unit testing on 20+ python and javascript-based projects which are used in the company's core product."

  • "Mentored systems administrators, supported agile development teams, and introduced work methods to support CI/CD."

  • "Managed the YouView STB project tracking current pass rate of the test suite (python-based, running on STB, 1000+ cases)." 

2. Mention relevant Education and Certifications

Although Work Experience is a key part of every resume, don't forget to include other sections which complete the image of you as an employee and human. These could be but are not limited to Education, Certifications, Skills, Volunteering (if applicable), and others. For all these sections, always include only the most relevant information, for example, if you have a Master's degree and many years of work experience, mentioning your high school studies is not necessary.

Senior IT Operations Engineer Education and Certifications Example

  • "Certified Scrum Master / Agile Alliance (2016)"

  • "Certified IT Operations Professional / IT Insitute (2006)"

  • "Human-Computer Interaction / University of East London (1989-1992)"

3. Don't make it too long!

Whatever position you are applying for, do not make your resume too long! Remember, resumes are not for describing every little detail about you and your former jobs. Its' main goal is to give your potential employer an image about what you have accomplished in your career, what skills you have, and what kind of person you are. So only include information which you feel are important and should not be left out. Ideally, your resume should be about 1-2 pages long.
