WHO WE ARE 

Centro delivers software and services to automate digital media operations for more than 1,000 leading agencies and brands.

An Insider's view of Basis Technologies

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Instead of balancing work and life, it’s about blending the two. As a parent, I may need to leave for part of the day or before 5. Everyone here understands and I don’t feel guilty. Even if I’m not sitting at my desk from 9-5, my work and my teams work will still be done on time. Centro is giving me the opportunity to live the best life I can.

Sr. Systems Engineer (Remote Optional)

Basis Technologies

The Production operations team is responsible for all product related infrastructure. We think it’s important that a single team manages the entire lifecycle of infrastructure from development to production. This helps us create reproducible environments with very little variance as code moves through the various environments on its way to production. As a member of the team you’ll be responsible for helping us maintain and improve that infrastructure. One of the ways we improve is by automating as much as possible. As a manager, I track the amount of TOIL work the team is doing and try to keep it below 20% of all ticket volume. (And we try to reduce that percentage limit every quarter as well) This keeps us away from busy work and instead focusing on interesting problems. You’ll probably spend more time in a code editor than a Bash shell. You’ll also work with developers on a variety of tasks from troubleshooting production issues, to aiding in design decisions for new features and services. We tend to also lead the discussions around monitoring. You’ll work with development teams to help coach them on the kind of metrics we need, building actionable alerts and visualizing these metrics in a dashboard. These conversations usually go pretty smoothly, but sometimes there might be a disagreement. Being comfortable providing input and supplying supporting arguments is a necessary skill to be successful in this position. We like strong opinions, loosely held.
