We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Senior Site Reliability Engineer to join our DevOps team working to secure and maintain cloud-deployed applications and platform services.

Key Responsibilities

You will be responsible for the end-to-end implementations of new monitoring systems, as well as the application integrations and processes to enable Kinesso to deliver a best-in-class system of customer-facing, globally deployed applications, data management tooling and web services.

At Kinesso, we’re all about reliability, availability, and uptime. We’re looking for engineers that are equally adept at building software and services as they are administering systems on the command line. You’ll need to be comfortable building things from scratch and be someone that believes that anything worth doing twice is worthy of automation development. You’ll come to the table with application and service monitoring expertise, a strong understanding of application security, and be comfortable working in fast-paced highly collaborative environment.

Protecting our customers’ data is Job 1. The ideal candidates for the role will have demonstrated experience in designing and maintaining solutions that operate on a least-privilege, minimum-risk design paradigm while retaining performance, reliability, and flexibility for our customers. Our view of site reliability extends beyond monitoring if processes are up or down but includes application performance and application security. Monitoring for vulnerabilities and potential threats to our services will be part of the job. The ability to provide dashboards, reports, and mechanisms to escalate on issues will be key to a candidate's success.
