• We constantly evaluate products and services before and after production releases to prevent, identify and fix problems that impact service availability in deploying, configuring, releasing, monitoring, recovering, and scaling.
• We participate in on-call rotations to monitor and support our products and services, taking recovery actions prior to and after disruptions.
• We dedicate at least 50% of our time applying software engineering principles to resolve problems impacting service uptime or our operational efficiency Our SRE Culture:
• To accomplish our mission and continue to build our internal DevOps culture, we embrace and are strong advocates of the CALMS framework.
• We seek to eliminate manual and repetitive operations tasks at every opportunity by exploiting open source tools, contributing to open source projects and building new tools when required.
• We value technical aptitude, innovative thinking and a great learning ability above proficiency with a specific toolset. Core SRE Skills:
• Experienced using software testing frameworks following Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) approaches. • Experienced automating software build, deployment and server configuration management using tools such as puppet, chef and jenkins.
• Expertise in Windows and Linux system administration, databases (relational and NoSQL), web servers (Apache, IIS), networking and storage technologies. • Experience with Cloud technologies and platforms such as AWS or Azure.
