On the SRE team, you will have the opportunity to influence the complex challenges of scale which are unique to Red Hat managed cloud services, while using your skills in coding, operations, and large-scale distributed system design. Red Hat relies on teamwork and openness for its success. We are a global team and strive to cultivate a transparent environment that makes room for different voices. We learn from our failures in a blameless environment to support the continuous improvement of the team. At Red Hat, your individual contributions have more visibility than most large companies, and visibility means career opportunities and growth. Successful applicants must reside in a state where Red Hat is registered to do business.

  • Practice sustainable incident response and blameless postmortems
  • Resolve customer issues escalated from the Red Hat Global Support team
  • Work within a small agile team to develop and improve SRE software, support your peers, plan and self-improve
What you will bring:
  • Bachelor's degree in computer science or a related technical field involving software of system engineering or practical experience with demonstrated abilities and interest in SRE
  • Some experience programming in Python, Golang, Java, C, C++, or another object-oriented language
  • Experience working with public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Microsoft Azure
  • Ability to collaboratively troubleshoot and solve problems in a team setting
  • Experience troubleshooting an X-as-a-Service offering, like Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), etc., and some experience working with complex distributed systems; direct experience with Kubernetes or Red Hat OpenShift is a plus
  • Demonstrated ability to debug, optimize code, and automate routine tasks
  • Basic understanding of UNIX or Linux operating systems
The following are considered a plus:
  • 3+ years of software engineering experience using object-oriented languages, preferably Golang
  • 3+ years of experience managing Linux-based systems in a public cloud like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or Microsoft Azure
  • 3+ years of experience with enterprise systems monitoring; knowledge of Prometheus is preferred
  • 1+ year(s) of experience delivering hosted cloud services
  • 1+ year(s) of experience with Kubernetes
  • 1+ year(s) of experience with containers on Linux
  • Excellent communications skills in a global team environment
