Site Reliability Engineer (Founded by Early Employees of Major Tech Leader)

Toronto, ON M5V1P9

Employment Type: Permanent Job Category: DevOps/SRE Job Number: 1737

Job Description

We're recruiting a Site Reliability Engineer for a startup that has been founded by early employees (including employee #1!) of a Silicon Valley/Canadian success story that has IPOed and now has 1000+ employees and multi-billion dollar valuation. Based on their learnings from this experience and working at other large tech leaders, they are now building a company and platform that every tech company and enterprise needs to manage increasingly complex architectures and application environments. You’ll be building a platform that you can truly relate with as their users are development and systems teams.


  • The leadership team has significant success as impactful, early employees at companies that include large tech leaders and startups that have grown to 1000s of employees. 

  • Their customers include large enterprises, who are clamouring for their platform to help solve increasingly complex architectures brought on by multi-cloud and microservice environments. 

  • This is an exciting opportunity to join a 10 person team where you’ll have significant influence and impact as they scale. This is a stable startup environment with recent funding and customer revenue. 

  • This will be the first Site Reliability Engineer on the team, a hybrid role that will primarily focus on traditional SRE responsibilities (infrastructure, automation, cloud, etc.) and will also include contributions to platform development.

  • Stack is Ruby on Rails, MySQL, Vue.js, Heroku (moving to GCP or AWS in 2020), Kubernetes, Sidekiq, etc. 

  • We are looking for intermediate to senior engineers with a software development and infrastructure background. 

  • Traditional sys admins that are not software developers are unfortunately not likely to be a great fit for this position.
