Job Description

What you will be doing as Lead Site Reliability Engineer

You have a strong background as a software, infra or as a system engineer and you work in close collaboration with your team to improve the overall reliability and resilience of the environment.

Our stack consists of Cassandra, Kafka and Spark. Our development and test environment run on AWS (using terraform).

You are an expert on the command line and enthusiastic about optimizing the overall performance and availability of the environment.

You strive to automate our process so the other teams can get work done faster and with better monitoring for which we use the ELK stack and make use of Prometheus.

In the event that things go wrong (we are human after all!) you perform root cause analysis and contribute to restoring service as fast as possible. More importantly, you work actively to prevent the problem from occurring again and support all our infra colleagues, even those not on site (specifically, in Poland so you might need to do a bit of traveling).

You are eager to learn and use (new) technologies and you are on the lookout for new tools that could help us achieve our goals, but you always keep availability as the top priority.
