Looking for someone who is passionate about site reliability processes and working on one of the biggest cloud networks that brings in millions of users daily!


The team is responsible for monitoring and operations of their customer facing services and applications. Another team does the provisioning and architecture of the software into AWS and develops the tools then THIS TEAM does the Application-level support of the services. Current team is 5-7 people + the manager. When the services don't work, this is the team that resolves the issues. Now almost fully in AWS, this Site Reliability Engineer must have experience with operations in an AWS environment. 70% production and services (java) support and 30% automation.

The platform is moving away from siloed infrastructure/apps support and each team is now expected to own their services end to end. This is where the industry is moving as a whole and only a few companies in San Diego are moving towards this proven method of efficiency. This would be great for anyone looking to be with a company that is staying on the cutting edge of automation and site reliability processes. Also, the pace and scale at which this team works would make any extremely marketable.
