The Opportunity
From the moment you wake up in the morning until you go to bed at night, consider the media you consume, the adverts you see, the apps you use, the websites you browse, and almost all of the shopping you do online throughout the day. Chances are that every single one of those interactions and experiences was touched by an Adobe product.

We have a phenomenal opportunity for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our RTCDP team.

  • Collaborate with multi-functional teams, contribute to architectural decisions, and ensure the reliability and scalability of our infrastructure and services.
  • Participate in the oncall rotation, providing 24/7 support (follow-the-sun model) to maintain the stability and availability of our infrastructure and services.
What you need to succeed
  • 4+ years' experience working as a Site Reliability Engineer or in a similar role.
  • MS or bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field is required.
  • Proficiency and hands-on experience in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes (e.g., AKS, OpenShift)
  • Technical expertise in areas such as Observability (e.g., Prometheus, Alert Manager), Infrastructure as Code (IaaC) (e.g., Terraform, Pulumi, Crossplane), and CI/CD (e.g., Argo, Jenkins).
  • Coding and scripting skills, proficient in Python, Go, or Bash.
