We focus on a mix of software development, operational automation and collaboration with other teams to help take our service delivery to the next level.

We are looking for a skilled SRE Tech Lead that can provide leadership and oversight of the development and automation of the various services E&N operates as part of the Graph ecosystem, while also contributing on the team as a hands-on SRE team member. In this role, you will have the opportunity to drive availability and reliability across multiple engineering teams and work closely with them to ensure the operational aspects of managing services is automated and observable. You will partner closely with the team’s manager.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Influencing infrastructure and architecture decisions with a focus on reliability, security, and scalability
  • Coaching teams across the Graph ecosystem on best practices for deployment, observability and scalability
  • Collaborating with other SREs and engineers to ensure our architecture and operations are world-class
  • Building and maintaining relationships with external vendor teams, as needed
  • Learning on-call processes and systems, owning triage resolution/coordination across teams, and training team members to react to production issues
  • Participating in on-call rotation

What We Expect

  • Previous experience as an experienced SRE and/or tech lead in the SRE/Devops space
  • Ability to work with engineering management to set priorities and objectives for the SRE team while also working alongside SREs to accomplish priority tasks
  • Experience building and delivering large-scale software systems
  • Previous experience working with both bare metal infrastructure and cloud infrastructure (ideally GCP)
  • Experience operating as an SRE with hands-on experience implementing processes that drive reliability and performance
  • History of working across organizations to codify and implement best practices for both operation and optimization of software systems; knowledge of and ability to implement CI/CD best practices are considered a plus
  • Deep working knowledge of Kubernetes (or other container orchestration systems) and associated technologies
  • Clear communication skills (written and verbal) to document processes and architectures

Compensation/Culture

About The Graph

The Graph is the source of data and information for the decentralized internet. As the original decentralized data marketplace that introduced and standardized subgraphs, The Graph has become web3’s method of indexing and accessing blockchain data. Since its launch in 2018, tens of thousands of developers have built subgraphs for dapps across 50+ blockchains - including  Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism, Base, Polygon, Celo, Fantom, Gnosis, and Avalanche.

As demand for data in web3 continues to grow, The Graph enters a New Era with a more expansive vision including new data services and query languages, ensuring the decentralized protocol can serve any use case - now and into the future.
