A bit about the role:

Immutable is looking for Senior Site Reliability Engineers to join our Immutable X team. As the first addition to the Immutable X Site Reliability team (SRE), you will have the autonomy to influence our SRE practices, team and processes, and to create a truly customer-driven culture of SRE from the ground up.

This is a unique opportunity to shape what best practice SRE for blockchain technologies will be.

You will have the opportunity to:

    • Identify, propose and execute improvements to performance and scalability bottlenecks in our current systems/infrastructure on AWS.
    • Measure systems' health, scalability and performance metrics and identify areas of improvement.
    • Utilise your knowledge of code to solve broad operational challenges within the Immutable X Protocol, Cloud Infrastructure and Ethereum.
    • Work with the wider IMX team to identify how we can provide the most production-like environment for running both manual and automated testing.
    • Define SLOs, SLIs, monitoring, alerting and incident response practices.

We would love you to have:

    • 5 years or more experience in SRE or Systems engineering.
    • A deep understanding of SRE best practices and processes.
    • Effective communication skills to be able to clearly explain your reasoning and thought process for anything you propose.
    • Hands-on and can write code in Terraform and Go
    • AWS experience
    • Background experience with networks
    • Strong experience with Linux
    • Excellent collaboration skills to be able to work closely with product engineers and product owners to understand their context and co-design appropriate solutions which balance feature velocity with site reliability

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

    • Experience with containerised and serverless architectures (we use both to keep our teams flexible).
    • Worked on a large greenfields project (or many)
    • Prior blockchain experience
