About you:

Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) are responsible for keeping all user-facing services and other Cyware production systems running smoothly. SREs are a blend of pragmatic operators and software craftspeople that apply sound engineering principles, operational discipline, and mature automation to our Production operating environments.

SREs specialize in cloud systems (application runtimes, operating systems, storage subsystems, networking, etc.) while implementing best practices for availability, reliability, and scalability, with interests in eliminating toil via automation.

The SRE team's experience feeds back into other Engineering groups within the company, as well as to Cyware customers running self-managed installations.

Why We’re Hiring

As a Cyware SRE, your mission is to protect, provide for, and progress the software and systems of our Production environments with an ever watchful eye on their availability, latency, performance and capacity. Continuous improvement, automation, and observability will be the principles you employ to accomplish your mission.
