Job Description:

Your Challenge

We are continuing to expand our services into AWS and looking for 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 engineering, and performance teams to understand the current architecture and moving pieces. The challenges can be significant. At times, it may mean rewriting or refactoring of an application in order to automate everything and remove human dependency.

We are committed to getting it done... properly, the first time.

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 threats

Jen is looking forward to connecting with you

About 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 design
  • Using configuration management and CI/CD tools like Ansible and Jenkins
  • 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
