As part of Splunk's Cloud-First mission, Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is accountable for the overall reliability of services running in our cloud production environments. Our team is also responsible for improving Operational Efficiency, Utilization and System Resiliency of the Splunk Observability Platform. We own Critical Open Source Software - Cassandra, Kafka, Zookeeper, ElasticSearch, MongoDB, Presto, Druid - that our platform relies on, and are core participants in every significant engineering effort underway in the platform.

  • Lead a team of tight-knit, super smart engineers passionate about large-scale distributed systems
  • Be responsible for a team that owns and operates large scale critical production databases, streaming engines etc.
  • Seek out every path to support and improve your team's happiness, engagement, and effectiveness
  • Champion a culture of learning, continuous improvement, and blameless retrospection within your team and across the company
  • Mentor and grow your junior engineers, and empower and unblock your senior ones

You Are:

  • An experienced manager familiar with the challenges of herding both sheep and cats in large-scale production environments.
  • Experienced with owning reliability for web scale platforms.
  • Conversant with a wide range of relevant tools and technologies! We don't expect managers to be writing code in their day-to-day job, but your interests should include some or all of: AWS, GCP, Go, Kubernetes, CI/CD, distributed systems (kafka, cassandra, zookeeper, elastic), Terraform. Some familiarity with compliance environments like SOC2 and FedRAMP would be ideal.
