About the Opportunity:

  • Strives for automation either by coding it or by leading and influencing developers to build systems that are easy to run in production
  • Provide a organizational leadership by practicing sustainable incident response postmortems
  • Measure the risk of introduced features to plan ahead and improve the infrastructure to mitigate customer impact
  • Proposes and drives architectural changes that affect the whole company to solve scaling and performance problems
  • Lead significant project work for the team
  • Collaborate with across the organization and help create, define, and maintain SLAs & SLOs.

  • Experience with Kubernetes and containerization
  • Experience with creating monitoring platforms
  • Experience with source control management practices and advanced branching techniques
