As a Site Reliability Engineer at Sift you will be responsible for a plethora of tasks and systems that span our entire product and internal infrastructure. Every day, thousands of websites and apps rely on our cloud-based machine learning to eliminate fraud, slash costs, and grow revenue.

Who are you?

You have a strong understanding of large scale computing solutions. You are a strong engineer who thinks of infrastructure as code. You love the idea of building immutable infrastructure and multi-AZ/multi-region fault tolerant systems that are anti-fragile. While you understand the need for monitoring and alerting, you dream of building self-healing systems.

You believe in collaboration, acting as a force multiplier, and making the right tradeoffs. And you have been looking for an opportunity to join a well-funded startup where you can use your powers for good (in Sift's case, to help eliminate fraud on the internet).

What would make you a good fit:

  • 5+ years of experience as DevOps / Site Reliability Engineer
  • Extensive experience building & managing cloud infrastructure on AWS or GCP
  • Experience solving problems with production systems and building solutions and automations to prevent them from reoccurring
  • Proven experience with automation and knowledge of configuration management tools
  • Experience building infrastructure as code and automating infrastructure provisioning steps, such as CloudFormation/terraform
  • Strong experience with monitoring and alerting systems, both open source and commercial
  • Experience with programming languages such as Java, Python, Ruby, Scala or Go
  • Familiarity with Docker and container clustering technologies like Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, or AWS ECS
