  • You will collaborate with cross-functional teams (engineering, product, and operations) to drive critical projects and initiatives.
  • You will influence and improve our incident management lifecycle to identify, mitigate, and learn from reliability risks.
  • You will oversee the design, implementation, and maintenance of monitoring, alerting, and incident response systems.

  • People who see influence as their preferred tool for cultivating relationships and helping the organization improve
  • Collaboration and continuous improvement are fundamental to growing the team’s impact over time
  • A desire to learn and readiness to mentor others both within and outside of the team


  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field (or equivalent practical experience)
  • Proven success in leading high-performing SRE or DevOps teams in a large-scale, fast-paced environment
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build strong relationships with team members and stakeholders
  • Strong technical background with hands-on experience in cloud computing, system architecture, automation, and monitoring
  • Excellent problem-solving skills with a focus on root cause analysis and proactive improvements
