Open to Remote location

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer you automate cloud resources, implement developer tooling, and make changes to our products to increase their manageability.
You can establish technical design.
You have experience with systems administration and cloud service automation.
Bestow engineers are great teammates. You will spend half of your time embedded with a product team. We do this so that you can get to know the needs of our product teams and ensure we build useful tooling. The remainder of your time will be spent with other Site Reliability Engineers working on cross-cutting projects.
Do you want to build products to reinvent a centuries old industry? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

Challenges on which you can expect to work:
Cloud Infrastructure Projects
We believe that all cloud infrastructure should be treated as code. Modifications go through code review and are performed using CI tools.
Automate cloud infrastructure using tools like Terraform and Atlantis;
Administer our software platform including Kubernetes, BigQuery and PostgreSQL;
Evaluate and design solutions for continuous integration, continuous delivery and DevOps productivity.
Ensure Reliability of Our Software
Great software is more than product features. It simultaneously considers non-functional concerns like security, maintainability and extensibility.

You will ensure:
Work with product engineers to identify observability/configurability gaps and make code-level improvements;
Create tooling to improve the developer experience, helping them achieve value faster and more effectively;
Manage runbooks for incident response;
Measure operational performance and make gradual improvements
