Site Reliability Engineer (Junior)


To further drive our vision of premier stability and rapid feature delivery, we are looking for a Junior Site Reliability Engineer to join our team. As a Junior SRE, you will be responsible for assisting in the implementation of flexible cloud architectures with an automation-first emphasis. You will be challenged along the way to adopt the shared mentality that observability is everything, and push for that philosophy to be realized throughout the platform. As a Junior SRE you will be guided in what it looks like to be proficient at integrating multiple technologies together to form a single, coherent view of platform health. You should have an understanding of cloud and microservice security. When challenged with building out a new feature in the infrastructure, you are confident in your implementations, ready to defend them in a room with other technical minds. You also recognize that the best designs come from collaboration, not dictation, and are willing to bring implementations to the table with an expectation that there will likely be collaborative changes to your initial work.

This position will require you to carry a company paid mobile device and participate in 24/7 on-call rotations alongside your engineering colleagues.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Build software solutions to improve reliability
  • Integrate software solutions to improve observability
  • Assist in the technical implementations for our cloud platform, with designs that place an emphasis on security
  • Work alongside senior engineers to deliver work outlined in technical roadmaps
  • Write tooling that aids developers in build management and rapid deployment
  • Collaborate with a growing team of DevOps/SRE engineers
  • Participate in after hours on-call support rotations

 

Requirements:

  • Minimum of 2 years experience with containers and infrastructure as code, preferably Docker and Terraform.
  • Minimum of 1 years experience in disciplined software engineering with a focus on highly-scalable/available applications in the cloud
  • Minimum of 1 years hands-on experience in a wide variety of AWS technologies
  • A solid understanding of observability stacks (monitoring, alerting, structured logging, APM, etc.)
  • Industry experience in one or more of the following languages: Go, Python, Ruby
  • Experience developing and maintaining CI/CD pipelines, preferably in git/GitLab
  • Understanding of RESTful and Websocket based APIs
  • Bachelor's degree in computer science, related field, or equivalent training and professional experience
  • Excellent teamwork skills, flexibility, and ability to handle multiple tasks
  • Comfortable communicator, able to clearly detail designs and implementations on an individual level and in large group settings

 

Bonus Points for:

  • Familiarity with a variety of monitoring stacks (Influxdb, Grafana, Solarwinds, Netflow, syslog, Wireshark)
  • Familiarity with HashiCorp Consul
  • Familiarity with Datadog
  • Familiarity with Perforce
  • Familiarity with Atlassian products (OpsGenie, Bamboo, JIRA, Confluence)
  • Experience working with developers in an agile environment
  • Experience in the games industry, preferably launching multiple online-enabled AAAs
  • Knowledge about Gearbox-owned IPs
