Job Description:

Smartedge's client is looking for Site Reliability Engineer_Permanent@ London-United Kingdom
Job Description:
A Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) combines software and systems engineering to build and run large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant systems. The SRE's culture of diversity, intellectual curiosity, continual learning, problem solving and openness is key to its success.
Our SRE’s are passionate about ensuring the services, both internal and external have extreme reliability, uptime appropriate to users' needs, resiliency, architectural simplicity and continually seek to find improvements.
You will have the opportunity to deal with complex challenges, while using your expertise in coding, algorithms, complexity/forensic analysis and various system design strategies to solve those challenges.  Much of your software development focus will be on optimising existing systems on Azure, building new Azure PaaS and IaaS solutions for services currently not running on Azure and eliminating manual work through automation wherever feasible.
You will work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We encourage collaboration and mentoring people in DevOps and other positive practices.  Self-direction is important and we strive to create an environment that supports this through trust and mentorship.
Role Specialties
A role should not define you, therefore we prefer to work with people that have well-honed skills, experience and knowledge in varying specialisms.  That is hard to portray in a job description, so we have listed a few areas that would be key to the role and you would be expected to be strong in some of them:

•             IAM - Identity & Access Management
•             Azure Policy Management
•             Cloud Security
•             Cost Management
To support our new platform, we understand that a wide range of skills are necessary and those skills can only be satisfied through a self-organised and highly cohesive team. Our goal is to build that team and support each member in developing their expertise, technical leadership and career.  This means we need people who love to mentor, but also love to learn from their peers continually, to ensure the team is constantly evolving together.

•             8 years of relevant work experience in critical production environments
