The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) team can provide you the opportunity to build and operate a suite of massive scale, integrated cloud services in a broadly distributed, multi-tenant cloud environment. OCI is committed to providing the best in cloud products that meet the needs of our customers who are tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges.
We offer unique opportunities for smart, hands-on engineers with the expertise and passion to solve difficult problems in distributed highly available services and virtualized infrastructure. At every level, our engineers have a significant technical and business impact designing and building innovative new systems to power our customer’s business critical applications.
The Site reliability engineering (SRE) discipline in OCI incorporates the ethos of software engineering and applies it large scale operations problems. As a SRE your primary goals are to create highly reliable and ultra-scalable software systems to manage the operations of our services.
A SRE will spend a significant amount of their time doing "ops" related work such as production issues and service on-call. When not working on operations the SRE is working on software engineering tasks such as design and development of systems that increase our reliability, scalability and reduce operational overhead through automation. The ideal SRE candidate is proficient programmer who has large breadth of knowledge and experience including areas such as networking, internet protocols and Linux systems.
Our SREs are close partners with service owners in all aspects of service operations and ownership. We have a strong culture of innovation, collaboration and team work inspired by the DevOps philosophy.
Work closely with development team on maintaining operational health of core compute services for API availability and low latency
Managing and triaging tickets. Driving prioritization and execution of work based on impact.
Scale systems sustainably through mechanisms such as easy to use tooling and automation. Work in concert with service developers to evolve systems/products for better scalability, reliability and development velocity
Drives new runbooks to help reduce mean triage time of incidents. Prioritize and automate high hit count runbooks
Practice sustainable incident response and drive root case analysis
BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding or equivalent practical experience
Understanding of Linux operating systems and Linux system administration
Strong understanding of Linux/Unix commands
Systematic problem-solving approach, strong communication skills, a sense of ownership and drive
Deep understand of service metrics and alarms through the development of dashboards, service KPIs, alarming systems
Experience working in an operational environment with mission critical tier one services with associated pager duty
