You will assist with maintaining our Kubernetes clusters and GCE instances running all of our sites and services while identifying risks and vulnerabilities.

  • Monitoring and analysis of systems, services and service clusters, optimization of performance and resource utilization.
  • Partnering with engineering and customer teams to identify threats and opportunities.
  • Assisting or leading incident response, diagnosis and follow-up on system outages or alerts.
  • Keeping supporting systems up to date.  Provide recommendations on needed upgrades or migrations.
  • Balancing security and risk assessment with business needs and processes.
  • Evangelizing security best practices.
  • Participate in a flexible on-call rotation schedule.


  • 3+ years experience in an SRE/Operations/DevOps role as part of a team with at least one year focused on security.
  • Experience communicating incident response and resolution to engineering and business stakeholders.
  • Opinions on IAM deployment and configuration
  • Experience managing high traffic customer facing websites and servers.
  • Familiarity with vulnerability assessment tools and practices.
  • Comfortable with shell and scripting languages in relation to the role (Python and Bash required, any others are welcome).
  • Experience with cloud-based solutions (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, etc) including networking, IAM, provisioning, and monitoring/tracing.
  • Experience with software and service deployments built on Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Desire to automate tasks and assume ownership of production infrastructure.
