Senior Site Reliability Engineer

Do you have the mind-set necessary to develop, instrument and operate critical services?

About the Site Reliability Engineering Team

Cognite’s Data Fusion SaaS product stores and processes operational data at scale, enabling the world's largest industrial companies to make data-driven decisions. Our platform is running on both public and private clouds. The Site Reliability Engineering team works closely with the software engineers implementing core product features and ensures that the products are built to be highly available, observable and resilient. You are expected to be hands on and making changes to the codebase yourself.

About our Tech stack:

We work with open source technologies that need to run in multiple cloud environments – both public clouds (like Google Cloud Platform and Azure) and in private clouds with customer provided Kubernetes.

Managed Kubernetes (GKE, AKS, Openshift) forms the base that we build our products on top of. Where possible, we have used PaaS to store state, such as Google Bigtable, Spanner and Pubsub. We replicate data to different storage systems to be able to answer different types of queries, where PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch are important examples.

Our backend developer teams work with Java, Kotlin, Scala, Python, and Rust. CI/CD is handled by a combination of Github, Jenkins, and Spinnaker to test and deploy code to production. The infrastructure is managed as code with Terraform and Atlantis and services are monitored using Prometheus, Grafana and Lightstep.

About the job to be done:

  • Establish robust reliability engineering to support our software engineering teams - you will be embedded in and work closely with them
  • Enable us to run 100s of Cognite Data Fusion clusters in different regions with high availability and performance
  • Nurture a reliability mindset in our engineering culture and contribute to growing the organisation's overall knowledge in this area

About you:

  • A master degree in Computer Science or a similar amount of experience.
  • Broad experience with DevOps practices such as CI/CD and Infrastructure as code
  • Experience with large Cloud deployments on either AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Familiar with Java or similar statically typed programming languages.
  • 3+ years of experience with operating software in production, preferably deployed as SaaS.
  • Experience with containers and Kubernetes.
  • Passion for defining the right SLOs, SLIs and SLA, measuring and exceeding them.
  • Exceptional troubleshooting and problem solving skills.

What we offer you:

  • An opportunity to make an impact on the industrial future and be part of disruptive and groundbreaking projects
  • Help to relocate to Norway
  • Competitive salary and benefits (including pension plans, insurance, benefits and more)
  • IT equipment and tools to allow you to be productive
