**As a Site Reliability Engineer** **(SRE),** **your primary goals will be to provide exceptional value to our clients working across our managed and professional services offerings.** **1. Job Description** Fairwinds is seeking an intellectually curious, collaborative, enthusiastic, and flexible engineer to join our team as a Site Reliability Engineer. This role will address two of our main products: Kubernetes Advisory and ClusterOps. Through Kubernetes Advisory, we write infrastructure automation, migrate to high-availability solutions, and craft Kubernetes-based microservice architectures for our clients. You’ll work directly with clients to ensure their goals are met through automation, analysis, and infrastructure configuration. Via ClusterOps, we help companies implement Kubernetes quickly and effectively on top of AWS or Google Cloud Platform. You’ll manage globally load-balanced installations, as well as smaller, single-region affairs. If the client elects to subscribe to our pager service, we provide 24/7/365 pager rotation for infrastructure outages (only on the great infrastructures we build). No matter the product, we take a collaborative approach with our clients - we believe that we provide amazing service and our clients get the best value when we work closely together. We integrate task tracking (TargetProcess), chat (Slack), and source control (Github) into our own workflow through careful and clever use of automation, giving our clients the ability to contact us like they would with an internal DevOps team but without an operational burden on us. You’ll work with technologies such as Terraform and Kubernetes on top of AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure. You will setup and automate high availability application clusters for technologies like Ruby-on-Rails, Django, Node, and Elixir (to name a few). You'll engineer management, orchestration, monitoring, and alerting for fleets of instances. If you’ve ever wanted to work at a scale that few companies do, you’ll find the right challenge here at Fairwinds! * Perform DevOps-focused consulting work for diverse clients * Build and maintain large-scale Kubernetes deployments * Create and maintain system architecture, design, and automation * Pair with other SRE/SAs, mentor junior staff * Release and maintain open-source software and projects * Author blog posts and participate in the community by going to meetups, conferences, etc. as a Fairwinds representative * Manage availability and performance problems for clients; automate resolution to prevent re-occurrence * Limited participation in 24/7 pager as necessary **2. About you...** * You have 1-3 years of experience working with Kubernetes in a production environment. * You have experience working in one or more of the major cloud providers: AWS, GCP, Azure. * You’ve worked directly with external clients. * You’re a self-motivated and directed individual contributor who is excited about being part of a growing startup. * You’re interested in the technology and have a strong eagerness to learn. * You know your stuff and are a creative problem solver. You can think your way through complex issues, have a keen eye for details, and possess strong analytical and research skills – you know how to find answers, and you know when to ask for help. * You’re organized, communicative, and accountable—you enjoy being on a team and you own your role entirely, while being open to critique, suggestions, and new ideas. **3****. Why Fairwinds** Fairwinds is on the cutting edge of Kubernetes. We are a “Remote First” organization working U.S. hours, headquartered in Boston, MA. We believe our solutions (SaaS, Managed Service, Professional Services, Training, etc.) enable our customers to succeed with Kubernetes. We want individuals who are excited to bring expertise to clients everyday! We are a group of curious and motivated individuals, guided by our values of respect, inclusion, compassion, and kindness.
