Sr Site Reliability Engineer

| Chicago

Donnelley Financial Solutions (DFIN) is a leader in risk and compliance solutions, providing insightful technology, industry expertise and data insights to clients across the globe. We’re here to help you make smarter decisions with insightful technology, industry expertise and data insights at every stage of your business and investment lifecycles. As markets fluctuate, regulations evolve and technology advances, we’re there. And through it all, we deliver confidence with the right solutions in moments that matter. 

Position Summary

Do you want to help build, run, and improve bleeding-edge containerized microservices in the cloud? Do you get excited about digging deep into hard problems and push hard to make sure they auto-heal next time they return? We're looking for smart engineers who love being pushed beyond their comfort zone and get excited about helping increase the rate of check-in to deployment.

About the role

We're looking to add to our Site Reliability Engineering team, where you'll be a core part of a team that's passionate about building intelligent systems, amplifying feedback loops, and continual experimentation. In this role, you'll have a broad field of influence and work alongside multiple multi-functional teams, automating cloud operations, crafting tools, improving CI/CD pipelines, evangelizing cloud internally, and assisting development teams with their monitoring/alerting/response processes.

What you could be doing:
In any given week, you may find yourself:
- Helping to plan out a migration of monolithic services into a containerized cloud platform
- Tuning a build pipeline to make best use of existing resources
- Improving monitoring and alerting systems that will increase our agility and reliability
- Developing standard methodologies for using cloud technologies across teams
- Providing expertise to ensure we're building fault tolerant, performance and secure solutions
- Serving as an escalation-point for developers, product owners and support staff

You may be the right fit if you have:
- An intermediate understanding of some development or scripting language (PowerShell, Groovy, Python, Golang, C#, etc)
- An advanced ability to operate and manage Linux/Windows workloads
- A deep understanding of the fundamentals of TCP/IP, Load Balancing, DNS, CDN, Reverse Proxies and other solutions used in large complex distributed systems
- An intermediate understanding of container management and orchestration (We use Docker & Kubernetes)
- An advanced ability to isolate problems quickly and act on intuition in the heat of the moment
- Working experience in a role where the business runs on a modern cloud service and have been directly responsible for portions of leading the use of that cloud
- You relish in the idea of being able to automate something on your plate and provide self-service to other teams
- You are interested in building out cross-cluster service meshes in Kubernetes and getting deep into the bleeding-edge of container technology
- You have experience in Information Security practices and principles and always prefer least-user privilege and tightly controlled access between critical services
- You are always learning and you are comfortable immersing yourself in areas you have never worked in before.

Basic Qualifications

- Bachelor degree in Computer Science or 2+ years of development or scripting language (PowerShell, Groovy, Python, Golang, C#, etc)

An Insider's view of DFIN

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am working among an extremely smart group of people, of which I have created great friendships with. During lunch break we play board games and have interesting technical and financial discussions. It’s exciting to wake up and go to work knowing that I’ll be collaborating with some of the best colleagues I’ve had in my career.

Mahsa

Software Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

In transforming and improving FinTech products, excitement comes from the challenge of knowing that the problems are complex, yet the solutions must be easy to use. When we start a new project, I can't wait to sink my teeth into understanding the problem space, talking to users, designing the solution, and seeing it through to release.

Dan

Principal Product Designer

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team at DFIN is comfortable to work with or learn any part of the tech stack. They effectively communicate during meetings to help plan out our next projects as a team, and they ask other members of the team for support if they happen to get stuck while coding.

Christopher
