About The Role

The StackPath Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team combines software, systems and network engineering to deploy and run a portfolio of high-performance edge services including CDN, WAF and Compute. SRE’s daily focus is on the availability, change velocity, performance and capacity of customer-facing services and supporting internal systems.

On the SRE team you will have the opportunity to apply your experience against systems at scale – where a single week can involve shifting terabits of traffic between sites, deploying configuration changes to shave milliseconds off billions of requests, or enabling a new software feature on thousands of systems using automated tooling you designed and built.

  • Experience with a Linux server environment
  • Experience with scripting languages (Python, Ruby, Perl)
  • Experience with systems programming languages (Go, C)
