Site Reliability Engineer - 18-00607
Ref No.: 18-00607
Location: Wilton, Massachusetts
Position Type:Right to Hire
Start Date: 03/12/2018
Our client is seeking a Site Reliability Engineer. 
 
Job Description:

Must have a passion to develop reliable, automated services that solve complicated problems affecting their investment pipeline. 
Their team's culture centers around the mantra that "Robots Feel No Pain (While People Complain)", so they are looking for DEV/OPSY candidates who refuse to tolerate anything that's repetitive and/or manual labor.

Skill-wise, they are looking for engineers and developers. (NOTE a RUN position).  Specifically, their engineers are fluent in things like cloud provisioning and automation frameworks (tools like terraform and cloudformation) such that the solutions they deliver aren't operated, they just operate.  SREs maintain the right level of paranoia about the reliability and security elements of their developed solutions.  In addition, SREs partner deeply with our security peers to establish functional governance of both legacy and forward-thinking ecosystems (i.e. on-prem vs cloud).  
SREs are responsible for deliverables in the following disciplines:  configuration management, monitoring, automation, and governance at scale in agile environments.  It goes without saying that you'll be a developer fluent in an array of languages with the common sense to apply them appropriately to the diverse problem spaces you'll encounter.

Responsibilities:
  • Create and refine secure, reliable services for our cloud ecosystem
  • Reduce the TCO of our operating environment
  • Reduce the risks associated with our operating environment
  • Improve the developer experience within our operating environment
  • Be an awesome teammate
  • Be passionate about technology 
  • Have a mindset that solving problems is an opportunity, not an obligation
  • Practical experience with AWS (or similar CSPaaS) is a must
  • Cloud provisioning, configuration, automation, and validation experience at scale
  • Security-focused mindset when developing/delivering solutions
  • Core Skills/Technologies
  • Foundation: Networking, Compute, Storage, Security/Governance/Compliance, Configuration/Validation/Automation
  • Development: Python, Perl, Ruby, Java, .NET
  • Cloudy: AWS, Azure, Terraform, Cloudability
