Site Reliability Engineering Manager at Paxos
At Paxos, we are creating the infrastructure for a new, open financial system - one that anyone can access and participate in, and that operates efficiently. There are billions of people in the world who are unbanked or underbanked, and trillions of dollars that are locked up because of the inefficiencies of the legacy system. We envision a new system that allows any asset to move instantaneously, anywhere in the world - to unlock the potential of assets and people everywhere. Our customers include some of the biggest enterprises in the world like PayPal, Credit-Suisse and Societe Generale, and together we are upgrading the global financial system using modern blockchain and crypto technology.
We are looking for a Site Reliability Manager to join our rapidly growing FinTech company. This role will be reporting directly to the SVP of Engineering and you will lead a team of talented SRE’s. This includes providing architectural guidance, mentoring other engineers, evaluating new technologies and industry changes, and defining and leading company best practices. This will also include interfacing with other leading technology companies and universities in the future of the blockchain industry.
What you will do:
- Lead a team of SRE’s on projects for users and be directly responsible for uptime.
- Ensure reliable and secure production and pre-production environments
- Maintain and improve efficiency by driving down infrastructure costs
- Improve system monitoring and alarming
- Improve developer velocity through build pipeline optimizations
- You'll work cross-functionally across Product, Engineering, Security and Operations business units
What you need to have:
- People management experience, including hiring and developing engineering talent
- The ability to work in a fast-paced, agile, and (sometimes) ambiguous environment with multiple priorities and stakeholders
- AWS Certification or equivalent knowledge about AWS infrastructure
- System administration experience for Linux and Windows systems
- Kubernetes experience
- Amazing troubleshooting, debugging, and problem-solving skills.
- Infrastructure-as-Code (Terraform, etc.)
- Logging (Splunk), and CDN (AWS and Akamai) experience
- Networking and routing expertise
Other than these qualifications, we're hoping to bring someone on board who loves what they do and can't wait to join an amazing team.
