  • Work with other senior technical leaders to develop, validate, and communicate the technical vision for our cloud operations (and how we can best deliver value to our customers).

  • Serve as SME and design lead on project teams solving real-world problems in architecture, cloud resiliency and deployment at scale.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Practical knowledge of APM, monitoring, and logging at scale

  • Experience with cloud-based security principles and crypto technologies including HSMs and key management

  • Experience building SaaS solutions at scale using technologies and concepts such as CDN, messaging, caching, batch, FaaS, DDos, GTM, and search
