Enable Flexport to become the most trusted company in global trade.
Flexport is looking for observability-minded Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) to help Flexport establish itself as the most trusted company in the global trade ecosystem. We support our development teams by creating safe support structures for them to build from. Some of those support structures are software systems, but the most important structure that we’re building is a culture of reliability. We have opinions about how to build and deploy reliable software, and we aren’t afraid to share them.
As an Observability SRE, you’ll join a team of experts entrusted with defining and defending the observability standards that help our dev teams understand how their software works in practice.
- Develop, implement, own, and advance telemetry capabilities used throughout Flexport’s Technology organization as well as the infrastructure and services that collect, process, and store the data.
- Advise engineering teams on observability topics throughout the software development lifecycle.
- Evangelize Flexport observability capabilities across the organization, provide training, documentation, and enhancements to existing capabilities.
- Support the resolution of action items identified during incident response retrospectives related to observability deficiencies.
You should have:
- 3+ years of experience in a fast-paced global environment doing Site Reliability Engineering, Software Engineering, or Systems Engineering.
- Production-level experience deploying and maintaining commercial or open-source monitoring tools.
- Production-level experience with AWS and container-based infrastructure.
- Strong interpersonal and communications skills.
