  • Lead significant production activities, including change management, post-mortem reviews, workflow processes, software design, and delivering software automation in various languages (Python, or Go ) and technologies (CI/CD auto-remediation, alert correlation).
  • Best in understanding SLO/SLIs, error budgeting, KPIs, and configuring for highly complex services.
  • Experience with the ELK and Prometheus stacks as a power user and administrator.
  • Excellent understanding of cloud environments and technologies, especially AWS, Azure, GCP, or OCI.
  • Proven strengths in identifying, mitigating, and root-causing issues while continuously seeking ways to drive optimization, efficiency, and the bottom line.
