You’re part coder, part sleuth, part efficiency expert, and you’re passionate about getting quality code into production. We are forming a new SRE team at Pandora, and you can be part of it. You will move from project to project, sitting with the engineers assigned to that project, making sure their system is scalable, reliable, monitored and the code is of the quality expected. And you own the innovation of new mechanisms that reduce the friction of getting software into production at Pandora.
You’ll work closely with the Tools and Release teams to make sure that changes are continuously being built, tested and deployed. You love things to be systematic, and you’re constantly looking at improving processes. This role fills the large gap between Application Engineers and Tech Ops staff and requires you to be an excellent communicator, listener and explainer.
