Engineering Manager - Site Reliability
The Engineering organization is looking for a passionate and experienced engineering manager with a background in systems, programming and networking to lead and grow our talented Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) teams who are in charge of ensuring that customers around the world are able to access Squarespace sites, that they load quickly, and that all of the features are working properly.
We work together with the product teams to maintain the reliability of existing and new features that are backed by a fleet of microservices, with the infrastructure teams to scale our current data centers and build out new ones, with the data teams to tackle challenging “big data” issues, and the security teams to keep a close eye on the latest vulnerabilities and constantly protect our product, infrastructure and networks.
The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) teams are also responsible for designing the systems that allow us to operate on our data centers and evolve the massive Squarespace software engine that serves millions of users worldwide. We implement software for internal DNS management, IP address allocation, and Linux image and package repositories. We build tools for the provisioning of compute capacity on top of VMware, Kubernetes clusters or public clouds. We work together with Server Engineering teams to scale up our storage, database and search infrastructure, which ingests close to 2 TBs of data per day. Our internal products include source code management tools, clusters of build agents for frontend and server-side code, automated testing infrastructure, Docker image generation tools, and continuous deployment pipelines, all used by 150+ software engineers in the wider organization. We engineer ELK clusters that ingest 5 TB of logs daily, Graphite time-series databases that process 14 million data points every minute, distributed tracing services that record 500 spans every second, and a Sensu alerting framework that monitors thousands of servers and hundreds of software services at all times.
