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.
