Senior SRE / DevOps Engineer

Location: Remote
Duration: 3 months initially (strong possibility of extension)
Start: ASAP

Project Language: English

Rate: £550 (outside of IR35)

Tech Stack: Kubernetes, AWS, Terraform, Helm.

I am working with an international client that is looking for an Kubernetes Expert for a 3 month project.

Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) are a fundamental component of their mission to empower their developers with a solid platform that embraces the 5 S's:

Speed, Stability, Security, Scalability, Sustainability.

The ideal candidate would have a strong system admin background but over the past few years they have been working heavily with Kubernetes.

About the role:

  • Set up secure access model
  • Increase development speed by giving better insight to developers into cluster state and application status
  • Reduce time to recover by ensuring the right people have access they need to debug problems
  • Increase productivity for Tech leads by reducing load on people with production access
  • Migration from plain Kubernetes manifests to helm
  • Reduce differences between clusters to improve testability and stability
  • Increase development speed by granting "blueprints" developers can use (reduce time to cluster)
  • Reduce review time and remove requirement for SRE to review each PR
  • Setup SLI/SLO measurements and alerting
  • Increase visibility on stability of cluster to ensure data driven development
  • Reduce technical debt
  • Reduce differences between clusters to improve testability and stability
  • Improve time to onboarded for new engineers

About you:

  • Experience with Terraform.
  • At least 4 years working AWS
  • At least 2 years hands on Kubernetes experience (Ideally Kubernetes Certified).
  • Experience with Metrics, Monitoring, Logging & Alerting
  • A proactive approach to spotting problems, areas for improvement, and performance bottlenecks
