We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) who has exposure to software engineering principles as well as solid operational fundamentals. In this role, you would be embedded into one of our more critically important engineering teams and represent DevOps philosophies to teammates eager to work with you. We share knowledge, responsibilities and value a culture of everyone being able to speak their mind and offer up constructive feedback.

 You Have:

  • 1 - 4 years of overall experience
  • Experience coding in any one of these technologies - Go, Typescript, Javascript or Python.
  • Cloud engineering experience.
  • Experience working on Kubernetes/Docker
  • Participated in and contributed to team meetings and discussions.
  • Demonstrated experience to resolve incidents, outages, and be part of an on-call rotation.

  • Good communication and documentation skills.
  • Taken ownership of infrastructure components or designs either on your own or as part of a team.

  • Working with technologies such as AWS and Kubernetes.
  • Providing engineers with the advice and tools they need to meaningfully monitor and alert on the services and features they develop, using tools like Prometheus/DataDog and PagerDuty.
  • Collaborating with teammates and working cross-functionally with different engineering teams.

In your first few months, you will be embedded with one of our engineering teams, reviewing stacks, infrastructure and monitoring while putting a premium on operational knowledge sharing and observability. You will be an important part of your host team's migration into Kubernetes, helping to understand the changes necessary to make that transition smooth.
