We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to develop automated techniques which harden our services, improve system up-time, and supplement our rapid-deployment model. This is a multi-hat role which will require both strong diagnostic skills paired with robust coding acumen. We design, develop, and maintain a repository of infrastructure software that lays the foundation for our engineers to rapidly iterate development, automate system deployment, monitor system status, and assists consumers of our services in deploying their analytics to our platform.  Additionally we diagnose, track, and resolve operational issues as they arise, to keep the system stable and available.
