The opportunity

We are currently looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our growing team in Brisbane.

You’ll be responsible for monitoring, identifying, troubleshooting and reporting platform problems to product engineers (or fixing the code yourself) in order to ensure stable and reliable service.

We’re looking for people who are just as passionate about troubleshooting issues with distributed systems as they are about automation, code and collaborating to solve problems.

  • Healthy knowledge of Linux (you have compiled your own kernel at some point, know how to trace syscalls, understand TCP, care about the difference between sysvinit/runit/systemd, etc.)

  • Relentless desire to automate and build software tools

  • Desire to represent work in git, driven by a workflow through issues and pull requests

  • Problem solving - you will encounter many problems you will not have seen before. You can research an issue and find a solution

  • Communication - you can work with both technical and non-technical users to solve issues for both internal and external users
