Serverless Reliability Engineer
San Francisco, CA
Datacoral was founded in 2016 with one overarching goal - eliminate the complexity and cognitive load of building and managing data infrastructure. We strive everyday to reduce friction that data practitioners face when trying to extract value out of their data. Our founding team has built and run distributed systems at scale - data infrastructure at Facebook as it scaled from 50TB to over 100PB of managed storage, and at Groupon as it scaled to sending millions of emails a day. At Datacoral, we are building the first serverless-native data infrastructure stack in the cloud. We’re growing our team of self-starters with folk who want to fundamentally change how companies work with their data.
Datacoral is completely serverless. We offer a SaaS product, but instead of building a centralized multi-tenant installation, our architecture has security built-in via multiple isolated installations. We do not deploy clusters or bring up nodes nor do our SREs. We do not want our SREs to do any capacity management (oh yes, we are serverless!) or bring in efficiency or performance improvements (Our product takes care of that!). At Datacoral we are looking at a SRE’s role in a whole new light!
Reliable data flows and data delivery is a key tenet of Datacoral and managing reliability will be your key responsibility. You will be a key driver for the direction for Engineering team and have a rare ability to inspire engineering teams to up their reliability game. You are both a generalist, capable of picking up and working with multiple, disparate systems, and an expert, having an ability to dive deep into specific topics and quickly master them. You comfortably move between system, service, and instance level views.
Success in this role requires a passion for helping others and making their lives better, you do this by simplifying complex systems to make them understandable and operable. You are able to effectively communicate decisions, ideas, designs, and operation of systems and services in a clear and concise manner.
You should expect to collaborate with all other engineering teams to develop solutions that meet reliability, security, and business requirements. Lastly, you will diagnose, triage, and build solutions for complex technical issues at scale.
Being the first SRE in the team you will have a foundational impact on the systems we create.
