As a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) at Together, you are responsible for keeping all user-facing services and production systems running smoothly. You are a blend of a pragmatic operator and a software engineer that applies sound engineering principles, operational discipline, and mature automation to our operating environments and codebase.

You specialize in systems (operating systems, storage subsystems, networking), while implementing best practices for availability, reliability and scalability, with varied interests in algorithms and distributed systems.

  • Excellent oral and written communication
  • Ability to thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts


  • Be on an on-call (PagerDuty) rotation to respond to incidents that impact availability
  • Use your on-call shift to prevent incidents from ever happening
  • Run our infrastructure with Ansible, Terraform, and Kubernetes
  • Build monitoring that alerts on symptoms rather than on outages
  • Document runbooks so your findings turn into repeatable actions and then into automation
  • Improve operational processes (such as deployments and upgrades)
  • Design, build and maintain core infrastructure that enables scaling to a massive number of concurrent users
  • Debug production issues across services and levels of the stack
  • Identify significant projects that result in substantial improvements in reliability, cost savings and/or revenue
