What you’ll do
The AdGear Site Reliability Engineer is a software engineer responsible for ensuring that the AdGear platform's services are designed, implemented, deployed, and operated such that they are highly available, highly performing, and scalable.
The ideal candidate for the Site Reliability Engineer position typically self-identifies as a "hacker", who is both a "jack of all trades" as well as possesses deep knowledge in multiple areas of software development, Linux/UNIX systems administration, networking, internet protocols, databases, and distributed systems.
