Site Reliability Engineer 3

This opening is for a Site Reliability Engineer 3 that has development and system administration experience with large systems who can use their experience to formulate and implement automation solutions to support our monitoring and system administration teams in tasks that either are risky to the system, prone to mistakes, labor intensive, time consuming and/or repetitive. The tasks can include that for which an SOP currently exists or that can be developed, but is likely not to be followed consistently. The task is to create sustainable tools as a force multiplier that don’t function more poorly than the manual methods. Experience with the pros and cons of tools like SALT and PUPPET will be useful for some tasks but not for other tasks where the team might build a GUI for the shift to perform tasks on the clusters (or to automate those tasks entirely) which will require development skills.
