Job position
Permanent - Remote work possible

Job description
Are you tired of being told to ship now and worry about reliability later? RetailNext is looking for a strong engineer to join our Site Reliability Engineering team. This isn't your typical ops job. The team is responsible both for day-to-day operations and eliminating as much of day-to-day operations as possible. Beyond DevOps, SREs work on the application itself to make it more reliable, scalable and self-healing. SREs aren't ops or DevOps engineers -- they're normal software engineers focused on the features of uptime and low operational cost.

Leadership opportunities will be available as the team grows over the next year.

This position requires periodic and low-volume on-call duties.

Skills & requirements
Who you are:
Strong in Go, Ruby or C
Experience in systems administration, including host and network security hardening

Bonus points:
Experience in an SRE role or mixed engineering and operations in an early-stage company
Production experience with Cassandra or Elasticsearch

Instructions how to apply
Please send your resume to andrew.golden@retailnext.net
