Senior Site Reliability Engineer, Security Development at Atlassian (Austin, TX or Remote)
Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it's necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
Atlassian helps teams everywhere change the world through the power of software and we are looking for a well-rounded Site Reliability Engineer for Atlassian's Security Development team. This team is responsible for building and operating mature software systems to improve the entire company's security posture.
As a Site Reliability Engineer, you'll build solutions to enhance the availability, performance and stability of Atlassian services as well as automating away repetitive work. You'll also respond to pings, pages and alerts to investigate issues in our products that you can really sink your teeth into. You'll be working on non-production and production environments, monitoring, data collection and configuration management, as well as disaster recovery planning, capacity engineering, reliability improvement initiatives and platform automation. The best person for this role is someone that has a collaborative spirit - in our world, it's not about being a hero and having all the answers, it's about sometimes saying "I don't know" and working on finding solutions rather than starting with an assumption. The team needs someone who can ask questions, learn from others and turn chaos into order.
This role would be a great fit for someone with creative and innovative problem-solving skills with a willingness to take responsibility for the code you write all the way to production. You will develop and implement solutions that operate at scale - seeing your own technology efforts directly improve the reliability of our products. Our teams are empowered and expected to improve our products to truly deliver a reliable experience to customers.
If you are a strong SRE interested in developing your info security expertise, this role is a rare opportunity to do just that!
Atlassian is a company that lives and breathes our values, as we seek to unleash the potential of every team. We offer 40 hours per year of paid leave for doing non-profit work so that you can Be the Change You Seek in the world as well as at work, in addition to unlimited vacation time to help you Build with Heart and Balance. As part of the wider security organization, we will expect you to speak at conferences, make open source contributions, and lead cross-team initiatives all designed to drive security forward not only inside Atlassian but across the industry with uncomfortable transparency.
On your first day, you will have expertise in:
- Engineering microservices and tools across one or more programming languages (e.g. Go, Python)
- Automation and Infrastructure-as-Code projects and tooling (e.g. Ansible, Terraform)
- Building and maintaining a continuous integration and delivery pipeline (e.g. Bamboo, Jenkins)
- Observability tools and methodology (e.g. logging, metrics, tracing) for highly available web services
- Designing and delivering AWS cloud-native infrastructure solutions
- Incident response and management in on-call rotation
- Focus on operational maturity and reliability with microservices
It's great, but not required to have:
- Experience with the Go programming language and ecosystem
- Experience with information security systems would be a huge bonus (e.g. vulnerability scanning, OSQuery, etc.)
- Experience building and managing large scale, high impact systems on AWS or other cloud infrastructure
- Experience with relational databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc.)
