The Role

As a Service Reliability Engineer at ProofPoint you will be responsible for provisioning, maintaining, and scaling our production services and server farms across multiple data centers. You will contribute to the architecture to improve scalability, service reliability, capacity, and performance. You will write automation code for provisioning and operating this infrastructure at massive scale. You will work with development and QA on building pipelines and automation for delivering and deploying production applications to this infrastructure.

We are looking for passion, curiosity, attention to details, taking pride in one's work, taking ownership, and having ideas/opinions. If you're the enthusiastic team player who cares about the infrastructure, remains calm in crisis, collaborates cross functionally, and easily writes code for automation we want to talk to you.

Your day-to-day

· 6+ years of experience in production operations; 3+ years of recent experience installing, configuring and deploying Linux based operating systems

· You have expertise in the relevant technologies (Centos 7, Splunk, etc.) in a large-production environment

· You demonstrate knowledge of CI/CD process and framework

· You are comfortable with common infrastructure tools (Puppet, Ansible, LDAP, Nagios, Splunk, Artifactory, Infoblox, Jenkins, Spinnaker, or the like)

· You can automate solutions for complex & repetitive problems and are passionate about solving hard problems using data-driven solutions

· You take an Ops-centric approach to everything you build, ensuring availability, performance and security are core components

· You act like an owner and strive to do work you're proud of, both technically and in your team interactions

· You can inspire other people to work with you, and you enjoy mentoring and coaching more junior engineers

Here's the fine print:

· You'll be a major stakeholder in continuous security patching and hardening processes

· You'll provide support and guidance for teams migrating from CentOS 6 to Centos 7

· You'll provide additional support for other team initiatives, specifically cloud platforms (Kubernetes/Docker/Openstack)

· You'll contribute to making services more resilient, reliable and scalable using infrastructure as code principles, software, and processes
