Your Mission:
As a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), you’ll play the critical role of developing and maintaining our cloud-based infrastructure. We depend on our small but very talented SRE team to keep the foundation safe and stable for our developers to build on. This means having stable systems, automation, and the necessary tooling and preparation to respond to possible issues.
The Engineering team at SwissBorg operates with a strong DevOps culture, meaning you will be working collaboratively with development teams to ensure projects are efficiently developed, integrated and deployed. We believe a healthy work-life balance within our teams will enable everyone to do their best work. However, due to the mission-critical nature of this role, there is a real possibility of 3am emergency call if we experience an unexpected outage. As a team, we will do everything to avoid such a situation from happening and plan the work accordingly.

What you might be doing:

    • Implement tools and architectures that ensure high availability of SwissBorg products
    • Identify opportunities to automate or improve processes and then implement the automation
    • Setting up effective monitoring to enable our teams to quickly see the status of our systems at any time.
    • Ensuring emergency events can be responded to quickly and precisely.
    • Active participation in incident response impacting multiple teams – clearly understanding and communicating what is going on, next steps, and participate in post mortems
    • Be on-call for production services
    • Discovering new technologies and exploring how we could integrate them into our processes to improve our systems and solve problems.

What you might bring:

    • Proven track record in a DevOps, or SRE role in a cutting-edge SaaS environment.
    • Expertise in observability and monitoring of applications, services, and networks, using tools such as Prometheus/Grafana and ELK logging
    • Significant experience with site reliability, developer productivity, devops, or server infrastructure engineering (including on-call incident response)
    • Knowledge of Python, infrastructure-as-code, GitOps, CI/CD
    • Prior experience with AWS, Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible
    • High level of autonomy, discipline, and willingness to learn
    • Ability to work collaboratively with a cross-cultural team
    • Ability to express your ideas clearly, mostly written, and defend them if need be
    • Curiosity and interest in fintech and the cryptocurrency space
    • Experience to work remotely or with remote teams
Why you should apply:

  • Freedom to build up the company that you’ve dreamed of
  • Learn with (cool) experts in finance, engineering, AI, psychology and business
  • CHSB bonus based on our meritocratic system
  • We’ll provide you with a Macbook and a cutting edge tech stack to help you do your best work
  • Flexible work hours
  • Annual team retreats with colleagues around the world.
  • Continuous learning and development opportunities
Oh and are you planning on having a kid? That’s great! We have a bunch of those: you’ll get time off to enjoy that (other) adventure!

At SwissBorg, we embrace diversity. We strongly believe that getting to the best outcomes requires different perspectives and backgrounds. We’re committed to openness, curiosity and creating an inclusive culture as we know that diverse teams build better products and generate better ideas.
