We'll trust you to:

  •  Examine our system to identify key indicators that reflect client expectations and work with our engineering and product teams to define objectives
  •  Probe and instrument different components of the system to improve understanding and visibility of potential issues
  •  Produce tooling for monitoring and debugging with the aim of improving transparency of the system whilst minimising operational costs through automation
  •  Define standards based on reviews with application teams to ensure that scalability and performance aspects are considered during application design

You'll need to have:

  •  3+ years of professional work experience in a software engineer or SRE role
  •  Proficiency in one or more programming languages including some understanding of either C++ or Python (most of our software is written in C++, but our SREs often use Python)
