Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Senior Site Reliability Engineer, Environment Automation

The GitLab DevOps platform empowers 100,000+ organizations to deliver software faster and more efficiently. We are one of the world’s largest all-remote companies with 2,000+ team members and values that guide a culture where people embrace the belief that everyone can contribute.

Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) are responsible for keeping all user-facing services and other GitLab production systems running smoothly. SREs are a blend of pragmatic operators and software craftspeople that apply sound engineering principles, operational discipline, and mature automation to our environments and the GitLab codebase. We specialize in systems, whether it be networking, the Linux kernel, or some more specific interest in scaling, algorithms, or distributed systems.

SRE's within the Environment Automation specialization, focus primarily on operating  a large number of GitLab environments, through automating all workflows - from provisioning new environments to daily operating tasks. This is the main difference between Environment Automation SRE and other SRE’s at GitLab, your day to day will be occupied by automation tasks of a large number of GitLab environments (and the environments used by GitLab), and operational tasks across many environments.

As an SRE you will:

  • Build: Automating every operational task is a core requirement for Environment Automation SRE. E.g. package updates, configuration changes across all customer platforms without interruptions, tools for automatic provisioning of customer facing services, etc.
  • Respond: Respond to user emergencies, platform alerts and support requests.
  • Maintain: Develop a good (early) warning system and system that allows for reliable and quick maintenance tasks, such as library upgrades, version migrations and similar. 
  • Plan: Develop monitoring and alerting systems that predict capacity needs based on the customer usage patterns. Plan for new service rollouts, expansion of existing services and preparing advice for customers to optimise their resource consumption.  
  • Collaborate: Work with other engineering stakeholders on resolving larger architectural bottlenecks and participate by offering a large scale operational point of view. Work in close collaboration with software development teams to shape the future roadmap and establish strong operational readiness across teams.
