Embedded Data Reliability Engineer

You care deeply about the reliability of your software processes, and loath the smell of poor quality in the data shrine. You are best-practice incarnate and consider continuous learning and mentoring to be of the highest, equivalent importance. Nearly everything you do is data-driven and you seek out innovative ways to measure at scale. You're equally at home explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in product development within your teams. For you, automating away toil is a daily breath of fresh air, and clever little solutions with scalable impact are warm like sunshine. You look forward to collaborating with product teams and clients alike, and expect to build many long lasting relationships with them.

As a Data Reliability Engineer (DRE) your focus is on automation, monitoring, and incident management of production reference data systems (ETL, databases/stores, APIs) - about 50% engineering and 25% incident response. Our engineering effort is dominantly automating data toil, revitalizing our legacy systems into distributed, fault-tolerant systems, as well as establishing system health monitoring and SLO-driven error budget governance. Our incident management is in collaboration with product owners, producing blameless postmortems, identifying real root cause, and eliminating recurrence. The role requires a very hands-on, system engineer, production engineer, and/or site reliability engineer with a breadth of experience - you recognize issues and know scalable solutions.

DRE is embedded globally into Reference Data product teams and is responsible for the reliability of our processes and the quality of our data stores. We're always improving our systems, ensuring our clients have the best and fastest experience possible.
