In this environment, you will take the lead on relevant projects, supported by an organization that provides the support and mentorship you need to learn and grow. As an SRE, you will be focused on running better production applications and systems.

 

Responsibilities

  • Design, code, test, and deliver software to automate manual operational work
  • Troubleshoot priority incidents, facilitate blameless post-mortems, and ensure permanent closure of incidents
  • Engage with Development and DevOps team throughout the life cycle to help develop software for reliability and scale, ensuring minimal refactoring or changes
  • Identify application patterns and analytics in support of better service level objectives

What You Bring to the Team

  • Possess an extremely high attention to detail and organization with the passion and ability to create order out of disorder with excellence and efficiency.
  • A desire to automate everything. Whether that be infrastructure as code or tooling to eliminate toil, automation should be a core focus of your mindset and the elimination of repetitive tasks should be a constant desire in the role.
  • Natural curiosity. You are not simply satisfied with something working, you want to know why it works and how it works.
  • A mindset of total ownership - you are not afraid to dig into things you have never worked on before, from the browser all the way to the persistence layer. You have a solid foundation in debugging and can jump in when needed to any problem you are asked to help with.
  • An architectural mind. You understand the fundamentals of distributed computing and look for ways to make systems more resilient, self-healing, and eliminate the need for human intervention as much as possible.
  • Extraordinarily effective communication and interpersonal skills allowing the candidate to work well in a team environment and deliver excellent customer service.
  • The ability to convey the importance of site reliability in both business and technical terms to a wide variety of audiences that range from non-technical to the most technical of engineers. Drive stakeholders buy-in of key metrics such as SLAs/SLOs for all supported systems.
  • Ability to maintain SLOs through the implementation of proactive issue detection and reporting
  • Experience developing scripts or tools for automating administrative tasks.
  • Prior successful experience as a systems performance or site/systems reliability engineer.
