You are a Site Reliability Engineer with a real passion for building robust, scalable, automated systems. Your team can count on you to deliver creative and inventive solutions to hard problems in distributed, highly-available environments. You’re experienced working remotely as part of a globally-distributed team. You live and breath DevOps values and why it is more than just tools or a job title.
