Senior Site Reliability Engineer at Shiftgig
Senior Site Reliability Engineer
We’re transforming the way people work with technology. Staffing firms and organizations can optimize and redeploy their workforce while empowering workers with opportunities that fit their unique schedules and skill sets. This means you can be more focused on elevating the human interactions rather than the administrative tasks it takes to place a worker on assignment.
Your job is to empower our agile development team to release scalable, performant, supportable product capabilities into production at a high velocity. You’ll help develop and maintain the build pipelines, patterns, practices, and support the core infrastructure.
Day-to- Day Responsibilities
Teamwork: The SRE is often the first point of contact for questions about troubleshooting, performance, security, and deployments. Being a strong team member and communicator is a daily requirement. Helping developers become as self-sufficient as possible is a priority.
Security: You’ll be responsible for managing access control policies for all our resources, ensuring, daily, that we stay secure and exceed industry standards.
Deployment: We deploy continuously. You’ll be responsible for ensuring this process is reliable and safe. We are a microservice architecture which means new services roll out regularly.
Development: We use CloudFormation and Terraform to manage our cloud resources. You’ll be responsible for updating and maintaining the underlying infrastructure, as well as contributing to our roadmap and system architecture choices.
