Job Description

Deployment and Runtime Platform is responsible for mission critical production platforms including:

  • Private and public Cloud computing platform
  • Distributed scheduling
  • Entitlements
  • Security and critical infrastructure services
  • Linux and Windows engineering
  • Core data center platforms including network and storage

We subscribe to Google's SRE philosophy. Specifically, w e look for candidates who are smart, passionate about building and running some of the largest and most complex software artifacts on the planet, and able to quickly understand how something works that they may never have seen before. The SRE approach to problem resolution emphasizes automation, improving system design, and building resilience into our systems.

Accordingly, we try to find and hire candidates wherever they are, regardless of background: there are simply too few people with the right mindset and skills for SRE to limit ourselves to candidates with conventional backgrounds.

By systems engineering, we mean a discipline that takes a holistic approach to the connections between distinct software systems or services rather than either (1) the internals of how to build a piece of software, where software engineering has tended to concentrate as a field, or (2) how software artifacts are deployed onto specific hardware, which has been the historic domain of system administration. Instead, systems engineers view the collection of individual pieces, which may be built by many separate product development teams, as a whole with properties distinct from its components. SEs tend to focus on how to monitor services, identify and remove bottlenecks, manage and balance connections, handle data replication, ensure data resiliency, and so on.


  • Engage with application development teams to improve the whole lifecycle of services from inception and design, through deployment, operation and refinement
  • Participate in system design consulting, platform management and capacity planning
  • Develop software and systems architectural frameworks and tooling
  • Maintain services by measuring and monitoring availability, latency and overall system health
  • Create and sustain scalable systems and services through automation and uplifts


  • 3 or more years of experience in a relevant role (DevOps, Reliability Engineering, Systems Administration, Application Programming, etc)
  • Experience with distributed compute systems
  • Highly knowledgeable of at least one of Linux or Windows platforms running key business applications
  • Knowledgeable of many other areas of technology (networking, hardware, etc)
  • Good scripting skills
  • Strong interpersonal skills - good client facing skills as well as excellent oral and written communication
  • Team player, eager to work in a global organization
  • Energy, self-motivation and independence to manage multiple tasks
  • Highly organized

Preferred Qualifications

  • Knowledge of at least one programming language (Erlang, Python, Perl, C++, C, Java, SQL) beyond basic scripting is a key advantage
  • Experience managing performance, availability and scale of mid- to large-sized systems (Experience of building and running high availability systems is an advantage)
  • Experience with all stages in the lifecycle of large distributed systems: inception, analysis, design, implementation, runtime, maintenance
  • Good knowledge of at least one database product (like MSQL / PostgreSQL / DB2) (Knowledge of NOSQL products like MongoDB would be an advantage)
  • Possesses good knowledge of different software systems, client/server architectures and various compatibility requirements
  • Knowledge on Software Development Lifecycles and methodologies, Release Management Process & Products are added advantage
  • Familiarity with open source automation / configuration tools such as Chef, Puppet, Ansible or SaltStack would be an advantage
