Site Reliability Engineer with Performance Testing (SRE)
Location; Leicestershire, Berkshire or London (fully remote whilst not safe to return to the office)
Salary; £60k for Leicestershire & £65k for London
You're the kind of person whose eye twitches every time a webpage takes more than a second to load or when a payment system falls over on cyber Monday 'cus they didn't Load test it.
As a 'digital native' you're used to your tech 'just working'.
But how is it possible...?
As a Developer or performance tester, you found yourself becoming more and more interested in the operational side of the solutions you were building.
How do you make it so that an app originally used by hundreds of users, quickly scales to be used by millions or BILLIONS?
Not only how does it scale, but how is it then kept reliable?
Scalability and performance are key focuses here. A lot of clients rely on flexibility for their apps, systems and services, so being able to trim back on, or ramp up, their cloud usage seasonally or as new products or features are released provides huge value.
If you've watched 'Silicon Valley' you'll know that things can quickly and sometimes, literally, catch fire if these issues aren't addressed properly!
Or, if after hearing about how Google's Ben Treynor created a 'Site Reliability Engineering' Team, you were hooked- then these are your people!
Then you went and got yourself a role as an SRE and haven't looked back!
You've learned about all the facets of what makes a great SRE; from automation, orchestration, containerization, monitoring, cloud hosting, Infrastructure as code (IaC), continuous integration and deployments (CI/ CD) pipelines, etc.
You have come to love AWS- both AWS DevOps & AWS Monitoring, Terraform, DataDog, NewRelic/ Splunk, Application Insights, to name a few.
You're now looking to spread your wings and find a role where you can work on various different projects to get as much variety of experience as you can, in an environment that will always encourage and facilitate you to learn more, push yourself and achieve your potential.
That's where this role comes in.
With copious amounts of lunch & learn sessions, tech meetups to attend with colleagues, friendly and intelligent people surrounding you, this is your new home.
You'll work hard, achieve loads, and have a right laugh doing it!
If this sounds like it's up your street, give me a shout and we'll get you home
