With Tint, our customers protect their end-users when something unexpected happens. They can include this coverage for free or provide it as an add-on. To date, we’ve helped millions of users get peace of mind.

About the Role

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), you will join the core infrastructure team. You'll work closely with the product teams to ensure Tint services are meeting customers' expectations. You'll help define the Service Level Objectives (SLOs) for the services you own with various stakeholders (engineering leadership, product managers, customers). In order to meet those goals, you'll keep track of error budgets, and help prioritize bug fixes and infrastructure projects to improve the overall reliability of the platform.

As a senior member of the SRE team, you'll be conducting the largest projects from writing the RFC document, to project and release management. You'll be the main point of contact for product managers and software engineers to be consulted on system design and help them deploy and maintain the services you own.In order to support Tint's growth, you'll plan for capacity based on Tint growth, test it on a regular basis and automate operational toil. You'll also take part in the on-call rotation and lead the incident management process. As Incident Commander, you'll be responsible for mitigation and internal and external communication on the incident. Moreover, you'll be also a member of the Incident Response Team, responsible for handling security incidents, planning and testing the Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery process, and ensuring compliance with the infrastructure and data processes.

Sharing knowledge is one of the pillars of our engineering culture. We expect you to also contribute to this knowledge. Writing internal documentation, being an onboarding buddy, driving peer programming sessions... There are plenty of ways to improve internal knowledge. But, we also expect you to share knowledge outside Tint, through blog posts, talks, open-source contributions, etc. You don't need to be familiar with all our technical stacks. Yet, we expect that you ramp up quickly on these technologies. Our stack is based on NodeJS, PostgreSQL (on Aurora RDS), Terraform, and Kubernetes.

Requirements

  • At least 5 years of past professional experience as a Site Reliability Engineer, or in a similar position (for instance, Cloud Architect)
  • Experience with at least one Cloud provider: AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Azure, etc.
  • At least two years of past professional experience as a software engineer (not necessarily in the insurance industry)
  • Fast learner to ramp up quickly on our domain and technologies
  • Stay informed about the current industry's state of the art
  • Capable of scoping down bigger initiatives to more actionable parts
  • Have strong troubleshooting skills in complex systems
  • Good English level: we are an international team, and we communicate only in English
  • Desire to mentor more junior engineers and help them grow
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves in a fast-paced startup environment
  • Good fit for remote working
  • Having a technical blog or maintaining some open-source projects is a plus

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

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. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
