Principal Site Reliability Engineer
We are looking for a reliability expert who is passionate about scaling Cloud services to join our growing Sydney office. An ideal candidate is someone who is eager to learn new things, keeping on top of industry trends (particularly those related to reliability) and who loves to share their knowledge with others. Someone who thrives on working with a diverse set of partners, who can articulate the business impact of a problem and can also dive deep into the technical solution.
We'd love it if you brought a deep understanding of modern Cloud infrastructure, programming expertise, operational experience and a desire to change the status quo. We'll support you with robust backend systems, mature processes, and a motivated team with a strong desire to not f*** the customer. We're looking for an engineer who can analyze and help improve our services and processes to get us to an even higher level of availability, scalability, and reliability. You'll achieve this by crossing team and functional boundaries to advocate for reliability methodologies and will work with a variety of platform, product and SRE teams to both build reliability into our platform and drive adoption of those practices into our products. In other words, you'll be the driving force for change!
This is an amazing opportunity for you to impact a broad number of Atlassian teams and services. If you crave variety, love building relationships with people and have a burning desire to make a difference, then this is the role for you!
