Debug the most interesting problems on large and complex systems using a wide variety of skills. Consider a system's redundancy, ability to gracefully adjust to outages and make changes to improve end-to-end reliability. Work in partnership with product and services teams to harden dependent systems for availability, tune for performance and efficiency, and ensure timely quotas and capacity. Establish Target SRE best practices to monitor business critical services including health, and manage incident response for issues. Provide active review, analysis and monitoring of all changes and deployments to these business-critical services with authority to approve and reject changes.
