Job Summary

As a Cloud Infrastructure/Site Reliability Engineer, you will be operating at the intersection of development and operations. Your role will involve engaging in and enhancing the lifecycle of cloud services - from design through deployment, operation, and refinement. You will be responsible for maintaining these services by measuring and monitoring their availability, latency, and overall system health. 
You will play a crucial role in sustainably scaling systems through automation and driving changes that improve reliability and velocity. As part of your responsibilities, you will administer cloud-based environments that support our SaaS/IaaS offerings, which are implemented on a microservices, container-based architecture (Kubernetes).
In addition, you will oversee a portfolio of customer-centric cloud services (SaaS/IaaS), ensuring their overall availability, performance, and security. You will work closely with both NetApp and cloud service provider teams, including those from Google, located across the globe in regions such as RTP, Reykjavík, Bangalore, Sunnyvale, Redmond, and more.
Due to the critical nature of the services we support, this position involves participation in a rotation-based on-call schedule as part of our global team. This role offers the opportunity to work in a dynamic, global environment, ensuring the smooth operation of vital cloud services. To be successful in this role, you should be a motivated self-starter and self-learner, possess strong problem-solving skills, and be someone who embraces challenges.
