  • Create and leverage monitoring/alerts to ensure system uptime and optimum performance
  • Help troubleshoot production issues and perform root cause analyses that create effective mitigation strategies
  • Support build/deployment processes with eye towards improving our  CI/CD pipeline
  • Provide ongoing support and guidance for a distributed team of 150 developers (and growing!)
