Job Description

Senior Site Reliability Engineer

Our client is a financial technology company delivering pioneering blockchain solutions for global financial institutions. 


  • Produces a work output by taking a complex user story, breaking it down into sub-tasks, and completing the sub-tasks with relative ease - own design, coding, testing all the way through deployment of each of those sub-tasks.
  • Identifies and proactively tackles technical debt before it grows into something that requires significant up-front work to resolve. A rule of thumb is to start looking into root cause of issues whenever there is noise. There is no smoke without fire.
  • Strike the right balance between fixing the problem at hand and focusing on finding the root cause of problem. For example, if it’s a production issue the priority is to fix the immediate problem and collect all the data necessary for root cause analysis. In a non-production environment, the focus should be on finding the root cause and fixing it the right way to make sure the problem doesn’t occur again.
  • Active involvement and mentorship of junior engineers doing code reviews resulting in up leveling the skill sets for the entire team



Technical Acumen Required:

  • Strong exposure to AWS. Knowledge of other cloud providers is a plus
  • Strong knowledge in at least one of the languages(Go, Python, Kotlin, Java)
  • Master of at least one domain - Infrastructure As Code (Docker, Terraform, Puppet, Helm), Monitoring tools(Prometheus, Zabbix), Container Orchestration tools(Kubernetes, Docker), Database technologies(Cassandra, Postgres), CI/CD tools(Jenkins, Spinnaker)
  • Able to understand and articulate the design and application of the architecture of the entire system.
  • Strong knowledge of distributed systems, cloud native applications and system design. (Answer - how to create scalable fault tolerant systems?)


  • Communicates effectively, consistently and in a timely fashion, across functions and is able to work well with the Product, UX and Solutions teams.
  • Proactively identifies problems with requirements (lack of clarity, inconsistencies, technical limitations) for their own work and adjacent work, and communicate these issues early to help course-correct.

Take Initiative:

  • Takes the initiative to identify and solve important problems even if they are in their domain or work area because of the ability to spot problems downstream and work with others to fix them before they become fires.
  • Shows initiative beyond merely knocking tasks off a list. Identifies and suggests areas of future work for themselves and their teams.

Be a Force Multiplier:

  • Able to work independently with very little oversight beyond high-level direction
  • Participates extensively in code reviews, mentors others via code reviews and pairing, document thoroughly as well as frequently presenting at team meetings

Keep it Simple and Smart:

  • Understands the tradeoffs needed in creating good software in their area, which is often times an entire product or platform feature

Respect Everyone:

  • Able to communicate effectively across functions. The ability to get work done across teams goes beyond mere proactive status updates (although that is expected as well).
  • Play a leadership role in making the right trade-offs with other teams even when doing so might mean more work for themselves, as long as that is the right thing to do.
