Position Description:

POSITION PURPOSE

If you are passionate about large scale, mission critical software systems, and you have a maniacal focus on system availability and performance, Reliability Engineering is for you. 

As a member of our Reliability Engineering team, you will be responsible for scaling some of the largest software products in Retail by automating the application infrastructure, deployment, and monitoring of those products in production.

Our "own what you build" mentality empowers you to make decisions quickly to deliver reliability improvements without the red tape that typically surrounds enterprise environments. Our Reliability Engineering motto is: Enable Speed with High Availability.

 You should have a passion for automating as much as possible and constantly be on the lookout for areas where operational and code efficiencies can be improved. You will work directly with product engineering teams leveraging XP principles, and, when you aren't automating all the things, you will be proactively executing destructive tests, participating in "game day" exercises, and related activities to improve the operational readiness of your product(s).
