Database Reliability Engineer

Your Job

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) applies software engineering techniques and discipline to production operations to attack major problems and fix them for good. We embed with cross-functional product teams and use a mix of software and systems engineering skills to improve the resilience, scalability, performance, and velocity of Indeed’s business-critical products.

Database Reliability Engineers (DRE) are a special type of SRE focused on the interactions between applications and data stores. DREs gain deep familiarity with their product's applications, data pipelines, and data stores, and make code and configuration changes across all of them to optimize the interactions between those components for scalability, performance, and resilience. They also work closely with other engineers on the construction of new data-heavy systems, providing expert guidance on the design and implementation of data stores and the software systems that use them.

As an DRE on the Data Platform DRE team, you will be part of a team of talented, diverse and driven engineers who are working to keep Indeed’s internal infrastructure reliable and scalable.

Your responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Implement systemic improvements to reliability, scalability and security of core infrastructure systems.
  • Collaborate with engineers in dev teams to develop solutions that work effectively.
  • Partner with our Security Operations teams to help define and implement best practices around Cloud Service Provider configuration for AWS
  • You will Automate and maintain infrastructure to meet reliability and scalability demands.
  • Drive stakeholder buy-in of key metrics such as SLIs/SLOs to new systems/software being built.
  • Responsible for establishing end-to-end monitoring and alerting on all critical aspects to ensure SLAs and get proactive notifications of possible issues for all systems.
  • Automate routine tasks and build for self-service.
  • Serve as a steward of the Data Infrastructure production environment by providing on-call support, incident response, collaborative debugging, and continuous learning.

Who You Are

  • Demonstrated working knowledge of CS fundamentals including OS, Networking, Data Structures, Algorithms, Concurrency, and Distributed Systems
  • 3+ years of professional experience in reliability engineering, software engineering, or systems engineering; blend of interests in both software and systems engineering.
  • 3 + years of Experience in managing and scaling distributed systems in a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment
  • The Ability to design, author, and release code in at least one language like Go, Python, Ruby, Perl, Java or a similar language, comfortable implementing both functionality and tests, and reviewing others’ code.
  • Experience in system automation - writing and enhancing automation tools and infrastructure. Experience with Python, Go, Terraform, and Ansible.
  • Take enjoyment in anticipating how systems fail, how failure can be designed for and monitored for, and what constitutes good SLIs.
  • Experience in Workflow and data pipeline orchestration (Airflow, Oozie, Jenkins, etc.) is a plus
  • Good understanding of design/Implementation of Big Data technologies like Hadoop, Spark, Hive, MongoDB, Kafka, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, Spark, ELK, etc is a plus
