What you’ll do:
  • You will report and solve problems within the Tanium infrastructure services and collaborate on issues with product engineers.
  • You will participate in SRE software engineering, writing code for the continuing reduction of human intervention in operational tasks and automation of processes.
  • You will monitor the Tanium Cloud platform and cloud infrastructure, responding to incidents, correcting and improving systems to prevent incidents and planning capacity.
  • You will manage cloud provider infrastructure, system deployments and product releases.
  • You will be involved in resolving Tanium Cloud customer support issues.
  • You will demonstrate and promote best practices for teams using cloud platforms.
