We’re on a mission to Make Automation Work for Everyone. And we’re hiring! Join us. From anywhere.
How we work
We're seeking a talented Site Reliability Engineer to join our Compute team. As we continue to scale our product and grow our team, we’re looking for an experienced Site Reliability Engineer to help drive automation, performance, and reliability in our cloud-based infrastructure.
At this time, we are seeking candidates based in Hawaii, New Zealand, and Australia (UTC+10 and UTC+11).
Things You’ll Do
As part of this team, you’ll work on:
Using site reliability principles, you’ll help fix problems at their root cause rather than just the symptoms. You'll improve application reliability using a software engineering approach to operations. You'll develop internal tools and systems to help engineering teams ship better software, faster. You'll get to impact every engineering team in the organization and use a broad set of technologies. Maintaining excellent relationships and communicating effectively with teams will be crucial to your success.
Building new features and services is a big part of this role. We continually develop and implement new ways to support our teams, understand our customers’ needs, and become experts in site reliability.
When bad things happen, you'll have the support of your team to solve contributing causes, learn from failures, and build robust and resilient systems for our customers. We look for the solution that automates the problem away, not one that requires manual effort.
If you’re interested in making a big impact and taking our infrastructure to the next level at a fast-growing and profitable startup, then read on.
Things We've Done Recently
You’re an experienced technologist. You spent 4 years working on multiple projects in SaaS companies in the world of systems administration, systems engineering or software development with at least 2 years of experience in Site Reliability Engineering or DevOps.
You know the cloud. You’ve participated in the design or maintenance of highly available, cloud-based infrastructure in AWS or another cloud offering. You understand how to leverage infrastructure as code tools and have learned best practices for reliability and observability. We use tools like Terraform, Kubernetes, Redis, GitLab, and Datadog, among others.
You can code. You have experience with languages like Python or Go to create automated tools. You believe in hands-off deployments and infrastructure as code. Well-honed expertise with the fundamentals of software development goes a long way here.
You can solve complex systems challenges. You enjoy complex challenges, understand how to improve performance, and help uncover opportunities for improvement. You’ve worked on problems where “just throw more hardware at it” isn’t enough for the system to scale.
You’re a great communicator. Not only do you know how to share your knowledge with the team and document things well so they can be consumed asynchronously (we do this a lot as a remote company), but you know how to communicate effectively with software and support teams.
You value our values. At Zapier, our values are at the heart of how we collaborate and how we think about our customers. In our remote setting, they help develop trust and ensure we work and collaborate together to democratize automation. You see how these values can empower meaningful work, you thrive in a collaborative setting, you are eager to continue growing and excited to be part of the team.
At Zapier, we believe that diverse perspectives and experiences make us better, which is why we have a non-standard application process designed to promote inclusion and equity. We're looking for the best fit for each of our roles, regardless of the type of education or companies in your background, so we encourage you to apply even if your skills and experiences don’t exactly match the job description. All we ask is that you answer a few in-depth questions in our application that would typically be asked at the start of an interview process. This helps speed things up by letting us get to know you and your skillset a bit better right out of the gate. Please be sure to answer each question; the resume and CV fields are optional.
After you apply, you are going to hear back from us—even if we don’t see an immediate fit with our team. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to never go more than seven days without letting you know the status of your application. We know we’ll make mistakes from time to time, so if you ever have questions about where you stand or about the process, just ask your recruiter!
