Engineering Manager, SRE

    • San Francisco, CA

OVERVIEW

The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team at Instacart helps other Engineering teams improve the reliability, security, resilience, and performance of the services they own. SREs use their expertise in how Instacart Infrastructure works to ensure other teams are getting maximum leverage from it. SRE also owns several of the processes (and related tooling) that contribute to reliability, including how we run incidents (and how we learn from them), how we make infrastructure changes safely, and how we ensure adequate capacity for future needs.

SRE is a new team at Instacart - this is an opportunity to define, build, evangelize, and optimize our SRE practices!
