Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Where and Why

Who?

Twilio's Kafka Data Pipeline Team is looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our team. The team runs hundreds of Kafka brokers spread across multiple clusters, environments and regions and is an integral component to many of Twilio’s core products. 

We’re looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to help us scale and provide rock-solid service on our critical data infrastructure and up level the ecosystem of how Twilio thinks about reliability and availability at large.

Your experience includes:

  • Expert UNIX / Linux skills - you live in the terminal and can't wait to get SSH access to investigate root cause, we weep at the beauty of your bash-fu
  • Experience operating and tuning Apache Kafka clusters, or other open source data technologies such as Elasticsearch or Spark
  • Load testing, performance analysis, and chaos engineering of distributed systems
  • Own and operate production services in AWS cloud infrastructure using tools like Datadog and Rollbar
  • Competence in a scripting language used to automate away the pain of operational burden
  • Bachelor's degree in a computer science, related field, or related work experience is a minimum requirement.
  • Bonus: you have informed opinions on configuration management (Chef, Ansible) and container deployments (Docker, Kubernetes)

What?

In this role, you will:

  • DRAW THE OWL:  Lead the operations and deployment of multiple Kafka clusters, implement SRE best practices
  • DON’T SETTLE: Drive resilience and quality by executing load, performance, and chaos analysis in a continuous delivery environment
  • WRITE IT DOWN: Break down requirements, estimate tasks to ensure high quality deliverables
  • BE AN OWNER: Support development operations, building, releasing and assisting with team on-call. Teams will be small and empowered so that you can move fast and ship to production multiple times in a 2 week sprint.
  • EMPOWER OTHERS: Collaborate with other Twilio engineering teams and work cross-functionally for product launches.
