We’re hiring a Site Reliability Engineer for our Tech team. You’ll join a small but mighty SRE team on a mission to make glossier.com’s infrastructure fast, reliable, and efficient.

The SRE team is responsible for Glossier’s infrastructure with a focus on resiliency, capacity planning,  and security.

On a given day, you may:

  • Pair with engineers and review code to ensure a service degrades gracefully during expected failure modes
  • Build tooling to keep our deployment pipeline fast and reliable
  • Improve our infrastructure-as-code practices (using AWS CDK) to make it easier for engineers to launch well-architected services
  • Run load testing to ensure services meet our performance and capacity expectations
  • Facilitate a blameless learning review.

As an engineer on a distributed team, you’ll be a role model for inclusivity and mindful communication, as you look for ways to improve team efficacy and engender a positive culture.

6 Month Expectations:

  • Contribute to major projects like next-gen deployment tooling so we can own our availability and lower our incident time-to-recovery. We’re particularly excited about AWS CDK, EventBridge, Lambda and DynamoDB.
  • Guide other Tech teams as we migrate from a monolithic Rails app to a constellation of smaller services in a thoughtful, pragmatic way.

12 Month Expectations:

  • Identify and ship impactful projects aligned with the team’s mission of accelerating the product development cycle while meeting ever higher site availability objectives.
  • Find and fix capacity bottlenecks ahead of Black Friday, our biggest sales day.
  • Be a flag-bearer of our diverse and inclusive culture.

Skills & Qualifications:

  • 2+ years designing and implementing production infrastructure on AWS
  • 2+ years experience writing and maintaining application code for web services, preferably in Ruby or Javascript
  • Familiarity maintaining high-performance datastores (we use Postgres on RDS, Redis, and DynamoDB) preferred
  • Experience with infrastructure-as-code tools and workflows (for example CloudFormation or Terraform) preferred
