an outstanding Site Reliability Engineer. As part of the team, you
will use your background to scale operating services in AWS, work
with infrastructure as code while growing in a fast-paced technical
environment. You will get to share your expertise in improving
existing systems and processes to evolving challenges.
We are looking for engineers with experience running large,
distributed systems on cloud services (bonus points for Amazon Web
Services.) You will work alongside our current development, system

About Our Team
Cisco Cloud Security is a leading provider of DNS and network
security services enabling the world to connect with confidence on
any device, anywhere, anytime. We are passionate about running DNS
services as highly available distributed systems using cloud
engineering best practices.
We deliver outstanding DNS based services globally to customers.
Our team is responsible for operations, performance and reliability
of our DNS resolvers. Our systems process 500+ BILLION transactions
per day. We own these applications end-to-end: architecture,
software development, infrastructure and the operational component.
By working in lock-step with engineering, we enable businesses to
securely innovate and protect them from existing and emerging
Jen is looking forward to connecting with you
You love collaborating with, teaching, and learning from
hard-working peers on software projects. While it would be great if
you already know something about the DNS, as long as you have a
basic understanding and willingness to learn, we are always happy
to instruct new team members the ropes. We also want to know that
you've been responsible for time sensitive, critically important
systems with a high attention to detail. Our services are the heart
of the Cisco Umbrella product, and we take ownership of that very
seriously -- our internal and external SLOs are high. You have
demonstrated all the vital skills to build and run these systems
over the course of your career -- this isn't your first rodeo.
The experience you'll need to succeed:
- Background in Linux/BSD systems and operation
- Experience running services in cloud (AWS/AWS GovCloud
preferred), cloud compute, object storage and serverless
- Using configuration management and CI/CD tools like Ansible and
- Experience scripting or programming in Python or other language
(Go, Rust, C/C++)
- Extensive knowledge of monitoring and observability concepts
(Example: SLIs, SLOs, Error Budgets)
The impact you'll have:
- Reducing toil by automating recurring tasks
- Operating a high available system that provides DNS access to
millions of people globally
- Improving the performance and efficiency of datacenter and
cloud base systems
