The Role: Senior Site Reliability Engineer - On-Premise

We are seeking a Senior Site Reliability Engineer to be a member of the Infrastructure Engineering group. As we head closer to realtime data and video feeds, there’s a strong need to move towards the edge. In our case, this is the sports arenas themselves. Our goal is to build and design a system to scale deployments into thousands of arenas.
This is a hybrid role with the expectation of a minimum of 2 days in the Lausanne office per week 

Specifically, you can expect to:

  • First and foremost, build and scale the deployment architecture that powers Second Spectrum’s products as we continue to grow

  • Work with our install specialists and network engineers to provision and deploy the hardware and software systems to customer sites
  • Design and implement robust telemetry for all of the services Second Spectrum operates.
  • Mentor and collaborate with engineers on other teams to promote healthy devops practices.
  • Participate in an on-call rotation that emphasizes eliminating repeating escalations.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 5+ years combined experience in SRE or Linux systems administration roles
  • Strong in Bash and Python. Experience supporting and debugging issues with compiled languages such as Rust, Golang or C++
  • Experience using container technologies to test locally and deploy into production environments
  • Ability to articulate and make decisions about trade-offs between rapid iteration and high-quality products
  • Dislike solving the same problems again and again - so you automate and eliminate them
  • Like to collaborate with others to solve problems, share knowledge, and provide feedback
  • Strong communication skills when discussing technical concepts with technical and non-technical colleagues

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience deploying systems with an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) mindset
  • Experience managing networking stacks for large (100+) amounts of deployments in separate locations with no physical presence

Our Stack:

  • Languages: Ansible, Bash, Python

    • servers: Ubuntu/Linux providing CPU and GPU compute, memory, and networking for real-time solution that delivers capture, tracking, and augmentation
    • networking: Mikrotik and FS switches with PoE, jumbo frames
  • Software

  • Flat hierarchy and collaborative management by highly qualified technical leads
  • Cutting-edge products to work on for major professional sports leagues and team
  • Team-oriented, start-up mindset, innovative and dynamic environment, which encourages growth and provides opportunities to make an impact

What’s in it for you?
