More specifically, you will be responsible for availability, latency, performance, efficiency, monitoring, emergency response, and infrastructure planning of SecurityScorecard’s platform. On a daily basis, you will both resolve problems as they arise and then design infrastructure and automation to eliminate or iteratively fix these incidents going forward. Any reactive fix you encounter will motivate and propel you towards creating key infrastructure improvements.

  • Identify and automate solutions to improve the performance, monitoring, scalability, and overall stability of our platform
  • Troubleshoot and identify service level issues

  • Service operational tickets that deal with existing issues, and identify places where automation could be used to limit/eliminate future incidents
  • Participate in capacity/infrastructure planning and implementation of small and large-scale distributed systems
  • Research new technology and methodologies for improvement projects
  • Be on-call periodically


Apply if the following sounds like you!

  • 8-10 years of overall experience in software engineering, systems administration, DevOps, SRE, or related disciplines
