SRE is an organization of engineers who work with our production services throughout their entire life cycle, from design and architecture, through implementation, deployment, and sustaining operation.

SRE delivers important system properties: reliability, performance, efficiency, and scalability, for the systems that our customers use every day.

SREs work in small high-performance squads led by experienced engineers. These squads collaborate closely with their development partners.

  • Participate in an on-call rotation and contribute to needed escalation missions.

What you'll need

  • BS or MS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline. Equivalent practical experience is a reasonable substitute.
  • Good programming skills in one of C++/Java, Javascript, Python or Go, and an ability to pick up new ones.

  • Grit, self-motivation and a deep feeling of ownership.
  • A good understanding of large-scale distributed systems in practice, including multi-tier architectures, application security, monitoring and storage systems.
