The Role

ClearScore is expanding and to support our productivity, reliability and efficiency we are expanding our Site Reliability Engineering team. Our SRE team is responsible for building our internal developer platform which provides three nines of uptime to all critical services, supports over a thousand production releases per month and scales intelligently in response to system load and unexpected events. Joining our SRE team gives you the chance to sit at the heart of an exciting tech culture, exploring best in class tools to solve challenging problems. We’re looking for self-motivated problem solvers with backgrounds in development or operations. We use a laundry list of technology to make things work (including Kubernetes, golang, python, Kafka, Terraform, Jenkins, ArgoCD). While prior exposure to these is good, we’re really looking for people with strong fundamentals in automation, networking and containerisation in the belief that specific technological implementations can be picked up by the right candidate.

Requirements

  • Automating in a Linux environment (e.g. BASH, PYTHON)
  • Operating distributed systems with complex failure modes
  • Deploying & operating infrastructure in AWS or a similar public cloud
  • Building & running containerised production workloads (e.g. Kubernetes, Hashicorp Nomad, Docker Swarm)
  • Developing software in a compiled language (e.g. golang)
  • Working with security best practises
  • Implementing Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment workflows (e.g. Jenkins, Spinnaker, Concourse, ArgoCD)
  • Working with logging aggregators (e.g. Elasticsearch, Loki)
  • Working with monitoring platforms (e.g. Prometheus, Grafana, InfluxDB, Datadog)
  • Proficiency in deploying, configuring, and optimising Kafka for high availability and performance. Bonus points for Confluent experience.
