Site Reliability Engineer

Airtable is a mission-critical system for a diverse set of teams and industries. We build our platform to scale, stay resilient, and deliver a delightful user experience all around. Our infrastructure requires thorough thinking, deep research into how things work, and rigorous coding. Our mission is ambitious, but we like to keep our infrastructure simple.

We’re looking for site reliability engineers who care deeply about building robust tools and operational practices that enable scale. Not only will you automate and build the workflows that support scaling out our architecture, you’ll also work closely with the rest of engineering to enable your peers to deliver and manage their features reliably, safely and efficiently.

What you'll do
  • Automate everything: deploys, rollbacks, provisioning, failovers, testing, common tasks and everything in between.
  • Design and implement monitoring tooling that will be used to optimize systems for uptime, performance, and reliability.
  • Design and write tests that investigate how our infrastructure handles failure and scaling.
  • Build nontrivial internal tooling to support and enable engineering workflows.
  • Research hot-off-the-press CVEs and implement best practices that protect our users.
  • Refine and expand our incident response best practices, ensuring that engineers, including yourself, are able to respond efficiently when incidents do occur.
Who you are
  • You are thoughtful and thorough, whether it's scripting bulletproof deployment automation, testing scripts, writing recovery playbooks, or digging into logs, monitoring data and code to find the root of a problem.
  • You've worked with Linux, containers/namespaces, and system automation tools for Unix and cloud platforms.
  • You take pride in writing solid, maintainable code. 
  • You're comfortable being paged for major incidents but also work to build fault tolerant systems so that those incidents are a rarity. 
  • You have multiple years of relevant technical experience, including significant experience with site reliability, developer productivity or devops, or server infrastructure engineering.
What we offer
  • Health care: we have you 100% covered (and your dependents 65% covered) with competitive medical, dental, and vision insurance. You’ll also be eligible for a complimentary membership to One Medical Group.
  • High Deductible Health Plan w/ Health Spend Account contribution
  • Learning & Development: we offer a $2,000 per year stipend for your personal career development
  • $200 monthly wellness stipend for you to use to invest in your overall wellness
  • Mental Health Support
  • Family Planning Support (fertility, adoption, surrogacy)
  • Meals and Snacks: our offices are empty these days, but when we’re back we’ll continue to have high-quality catered lunches and well-stocked kitchens
  • Generous PTO, sick leave, and parental leave
