Job Description


Site Reliability Engineer

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a discipline that combines software and systems engineering for building and running large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant systems. SRE ensures that internal and external services meet or exceed reliability and performance expectations while adhering to engineering principles.

SRE is also an engineering approach to building and running production systems – we engineer solutions to operational problems. As SREs are responsible for overall system operation, we use a breadth of tools and approaches to solve a broad set of problems. Practices such as limiting time spent on operational work, blameless postmortems, and proactive identification and prevention of potential outages.

  • Engage in and improve the software development lifecycle – from inception and design, through development, deployment, operation and refinement
  • Influence and design infrastructure, architecture, standards and methods for large-scale systems
  • Support services prior to production via infrastructure design, software platform development, load testing, capacity planning and launch reviews
  • Maintain services during deployment and in production by measuring and monitoring key performance and service level indicators including availability, latency, and overall system health
  • Automate system scalability and continually work to improve system resiliency, performance and efficiency
  • Practice sustainable incident response as part of an on-call rotation and through blameless postmortems
  • Remediate tasks within corrective action plan via sustainable, preventative, and automated measures whenever possible

  • Experience in languages such as Python, Ruby, Bash, Java, Go, Perl, javascript and/or node.js
  • Demonstrable cross-functional knowledge with systems, storage, networking, security and databases
  • System administration skills, including automation and orchestration of Linux/Windows using Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Salt Stack and/or containers (Docker, Kubernetes, etc.)
  • Proficiency with continuous integration and continuous delivery tooling and practices
  • Strong analytical and troubleshooting skills


Preferred skills:
  • Expertise designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems.
  • Systematic problem-solving approach, coupled with strong communication skills and a sense of ownership and drive
