Job Description

Varo’s SRE team is well established, designing, building, and running large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant systems that power most of Varo's operations. We live and breathe AWS and Kubernetes, having an open source first and result oriented mindset. We are an automation and observability focused team and we strive to automate ourselves out of manual / remedial tasks. We monitor and create dashboards to promote a data-driven approach to scale out our platform. On a typical day, members of our team are hands-on scaling-out production infrastructure, building out CI/CD pipelines, and brainstorming with developers on how to make things better. We collectively strive to build and maintain a rapid-feedback platform that enables our engineers to accomplish their own goals instead of creating friction.

What you'll be doing

    • Take ownership of the availability and resiliency of Varo's cloud-based infrastructure; design and maintain disaster recovery scenarios; design self-healing and resiliency patterns
    • Write and maintain infrastructure as code for core systems (Terraform, Terraform modules and Kubernetes helm charts); build and maintain CI/CD pipelines
    • Improve observability and monitoring across Varo's infrastructure by implementing advanced tools and technologies
    • Create and maintain monitoring dashboards, alerts, and log systems to quickly identify and resolve issues
    • Implement advanced observability tools like distributed tracing and anomaly detection for deeper system insights and efficient troubleshooting
    • Help lead high-profile incidents and facilitate blameless post-mortems
    • Collaborate with development teams to implement and improve SLIs and SLOs for their services and to promote service ownership
    • Use monitoring data to drive actionable insights and contribute to incident response strategies
    • Automate operational tasks to save time and improve accuracy
    • Write clean and scalable scripts, software and systems to manage platform infrastructure and applications

You’ll bring the following required skills and experiences

    • 8+ years as a Site Reliability, DevOps, or Software Engineer with proficiency in one or more high-level languages (such as Python, GoLang, Ruby, Java, or JavaScript) required
    • Excellent Linux and troubleshooting skills
    • Experience in building and supporting high-availability cloud environments in AWS
    • Experience using Infrastructure as code (IaC) and deployment automation with tools such as Terraform, Helm, Gitlab or equivalent
    • Experience running Kubernetes in production
    • Istio experience is a plus
    • Experience with monitoring, logging and tracing tools such as Prometheus, Grafana, Jaeger/Tempo, ELK/Loki, OpenTelemetry
    • Experience instrumenting code (Java/Kotlin, Python, Go, etc.) and creating simple instrumentation frameworks for developers to adopt where auto instrumentation may fall short
    • Participate in an on-call rotation for after-hours production infrastructure incidents
    • Experience with SDLC, CI/CD, and related tooling
    • Kafka experience is a plus
