Senior Site Reliability Engineer

Bristol, England, United Kingdom

Description

Cookpad is the largest recipe sharing service in the world. Over 2.8 million user recipes have been posted on Cookpad to date and 63 million users in Japan visit the site each month. Since 2014, Cookpad has expanded internationally and now operates in over 17 languages, 60 countries, and attracts an additional 35 million users per month outside of Japan.

Cookpad is looking for engineers to join our Site Reliability Engineering team. Site Reliability Engineers are a hybrid between system engineers and software engineers who are responsible for and who take ownership of reliability, automation, and scalability. You will focus on the systems and tools that enable our engineers to operate and scale the largest recipe sharing community in the world.

As a SRE, you will build high performance and scalable systems with AWS and software. You will also work closely with engineers to advocate sensible, scalable, systems design and share responsibility with them in diagnosing, resolving, and preventing production issues. In the case of incidents, you will triage, mitigate and solve them with product team engineers.

People join us because they share our vision to improve people’s lives. We hire smart people who thrive in small, highly collaborative, and energised teams, and who look at what we do and want to be part of it. Uniquely, we have a mature product in Japan but, in the global market-space, we are a start-up team with a new product vision so there is freedom to be innovative and put forward brave ideas.
