About Oracle Production Engineering
Oracle Cloud Production Engineering plays a critical
role in delivering and supporting best-of-breed cloud solutions to Oracle
Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most
integrated public cloud. It offers best-in-class services across software as a
service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service
(IaaS), and even lets you put Oracle Cloud in your own data center. Oracle
Cloud helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation by
increasing business agility, lowering costs, and reducing IT complexity.
The Oracle Cloud has shown strong adoption, supporting
70+ million users and more than 30+ billion transactions each day. It runs in
19 data centers around the world.
Our team provides 24/7/365, follow-the-sun coverage
while pushing the boundaries of what can be accomplished in the cloud.
Advancing cloud computing means great growth opportunities, and highly
rewarding experiences working in our expanding computing environments and
DEVOPS teams.
About The Job
A unique opportunity to join a rapidly growing
world-class team to engineer cutting edge Oracle Cloud technologies and
infrastructure that make up the Oracle Cloud solutions. As part of the SRE
team, you will be continually challenged and have an opportunity to contribute
to the Oracle Cloud success every day, working closely with the development
As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will solve
interesting technical challenges by defining, designing, deploying, and
troubleshooting key Oracle Cloud services, platforms, and infrastructure,
always thinking about reliability, scalability, resilience, security, and
The ideal candidate for this engaging and visible
technical leadership role would have the experience of a developer, the wits of
a systems and infrastructure whiz, and the courage of a spirited
“closer”. All these qualities bundled up in an affable communicator
in order to make our Oracle Cloud customers successful.
What You’ll Do
Service Ownership –You will be part of the SRE team, whose mission
is the shared full stack ownership of a collection of services and/or
technology areas, with our Development partners.
Ownership Scope – As an SRE, you will understand the end-to-end
configuration, technical dependencies, and overall behavioural
characteristics of the production services you own. In partnership with
your Development partners, you will have the responsibility to ensure that
services are designed and delivered to be mission critical with focus on
security, resiliency, scale, and performance. SREs are the ultimate
authority and are accountable for the end-to-end performance and operability
of the services they own.
Service Design – As the Oracle Cloud evolves; you will partner
with development teams in defining and implementing improvements in
service architecture, both current and future. As an SRE, you will be an
expert at articulating technical characteristics of your services and the
dependencies between services, and guide Development teams to engineer and
add premier capabilities to the Oracle Cloud service portfolio.
Operations Engineering – You will understand and be able to
communicate the scale, capacity, security, performance attributes and
requirements of the services you own. You are a Subject Matter Expert,
able to understand and communicate every characteristic of your service
stack, such as:
degradation and behaviour under load of the
services and their dependencies
end-to-end tuning needs, optimizing resource
utilization, as load patterns fluctuate
Instrumentation and metrics that clearly
describe the service behaviours
scaling requirements and patterns
resiliency and recoverability, ensuring that
backup / restore and disaster recovery capabilities are implemented,
tested and maintained
Automation – You will have a clear understanding of
automation and orchestration principles, and will be eager to automate,
wherever and whenever the possibility arises, while simultaneously
eliminating technical debt. Automation must be part of your DNA.
Prevention – Once you have expertly resolved an issue, you
will immediately work on how to more quickly resolve the problem next
time, with the goal to eventually prevent the problem happening ever again
Technical Experts – As service owner, you are the ultimate
escalation point for complex or critical issues that have not yet been
documented as SOPs for Level1 staff. You will usually get called in
during major incidents as an SME, when the source of a problem is unclear.
You will have the deep understanding of service topology and their
dependencies required to troubleshoot issues and define mitigations.
Broad Interests – SREs are a rare mix of sysadmins and
development Engineers, and as such have the ability to understand and
explain the affect of product architecture decisions on the ability to run
as distributed systems. They are driven by professional curiosity and a
desire to a develop deep understanding of the their services and the
technologies they depend upon.
Represent SRE – Proactive, self-motivated, customer-focused,
organized, and a good communicator. SRE can be expected to represent Cloud
products and engineering in sensitive forums.
