  • Build tools and design processes that help improve observability and system resiliency of the Platform.
  • Triage Site Availability Incidents and proactively work towards reducing MTTR for customer impacting incidents.
  • Partner with Service owners to implement Service Level Metrics & Service Level Objectives that act as service level health indicators.
  • Establish design patterns for monitoring, benchmarking and deploying new features for the backend services.

Required Skills and Experience

  • BS degrees in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5+ years of experience as a Site Reliability Engineer, Production Engineer or Backend Software Engineer for web-scale or similar platforms. 
  • Coding experience in one or more of Python, Bash, Go or Java.

  • Experience with one or more OSS technologies like Kafka, Cassandra, Zookeeper or Elasticsearch.
