  • Collaborate with your team members to review their work and have your work reviewed in turn.
  • Work in a  collaborative environment where teams own and operate the services they build.
  • Influence and create new designs, architectures, standards and methods for large-scale distributed systems.

 

You’ll enjoy this role if you…

  • Know how to code.
  • Are curious and like solving complex challenges for scalable, low latency systems.
  • Enjoy creating software solutions for a Cloud native environment.
  • Enjoy collaborating with multiple stakeholders.
  • Have a passion for SRE, DevOps and related automation.

 

What you’ll need to be successful…

  • BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Experience writing automation using Python/Go, Terraform and Unix Shell.
  • Have been involved in designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems  like Kubernetes. 
  • 1+ years of SRE/DevOps and experience in delivery software into production.
  • 1-2 years managing monitor, logging  and report systems, and building observability dashboards on application and server performance and scalability issues (examples: SignalFX, Sumologic, New Relic, or other observability tools).
  • Understanding of security best practices.
  • Experience with automation/configuration management using Ansible, Chef or Puppet
  • Experience on large scale administration of Linux servers.
  • Knowledge of AWS or GCP products like EC2 or EKS/GKA/ECS
  • Ability to provide after-hours support as needed for emergency or urgent situations.

 

Extra credit if you…

  • Expertise in designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems.
  • Familiarity with running web services at scale; understanding of Unix systems internals and networking.
  • Understanding of Unix/Linux systems from kernel to shell and beyond, taking in system libraries, file systems, and client-server protocols along the way.
  • Networking: knowledge and understanding of network theory, such as different protocols (TCP/IP, UDP, ICMP, etc), MAC addresses, IP packets, DNS, OSI layers, and load balancing).
  • Systematic problem-solving approach, coupled with a strong sense of ownership and drive.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
