As a member of the Site Reliability Engineering team, you will own Aetion’s infrastructure which is containerized and managed through Infrastructure as Code (IaC). You will split your time between engineering projects (maturing our infrastructure and automation) and supporting day to day operations (such as provisioning infrastructure and providing production support).

  • Being the primary technical contact for valuable clients that require collaboration and technical expertise.
  • Provisioning infrastructure into client-owned AWS accounts and/or on premise hardware installations.
  • Working closely with the rest of the Site Reliability Engineering team to incorporate client-driven requirements into our infrastructure while keeping things as consistent as possible across all of our installations.

  • 8+ years experience in Site Reliability Engineering, DevOps, or Software Engineering roles.
  • 6+ years experience developing in Golang, Python, or other programming languages.
  • 3+ years experience in IaC tools and languages such as Pulumi, Helm, Terraform, Ansible, or Packer.
  • 3+ years experience with cloud providers (preferably AWS).
  • Proficiency in building and debugging applications written in Java, Typescript, and Python.
  • Ability to prioritize, communicate well, design for repeatability and scalability, exude ownership, and dig beneath the hood with technology.
  • Flexibility to both improve what we have in motion and to innovate on new capabilities.
  • Ability to take a lead role in complex engineering projects.
  • Willingness to travel to client sites in the EU as needed (~20-25%).


  • Exposure to distributed systems and CI/CD (Jenkins).
  • Experience with containerized workloads (Docker and Kubernetes).
  • Experience with Computer Networking.
  • Experience with provisioning of NoSQL databases, big data platforms, and relational databases.
