Sr. Site Reliability Engineer, HipChat

Job Description

Excel at delivering exceptional availability and reliability for your customer facing cloud services? Atlassian Site Reliability Engineering wants you!

As a Sr. Engineer on the Site Reliability Engineering Team for HipChat, you’ll use your technical chops and people skills to enhance HipChat availability, reliability and performance. You'll also respond to HipChat alerts and issues that you can investigate and really sink your teeth into. You'll work on disaster recovery planning, capacity engineering, reliability improvement initiatives, platform automation, and much more. The best person for this role is someone that has a collaborative spirit - it’s not about being a hero and having all the answers, it’s about working as a team to find solutions that enhance HipChat user experience. The team needs someone who can listen, lead, and turns chaos into order.

This role would be a great fit for someone that likes to see concrete results from their work. You will develop and implement solutions that operate at scale - seeing your own technology efforts grow and evolve, from proof of concept to millions of users in production.

One thing we promise: you’ll never be bored!
