WHAT WE DO MATTERS

We have big plans for continued global growth, and we’re looking for people who are creative, flexible and dedicated to helping us build something great – something that matters.

We give the power to every member of the team when we invite all developers, engineers and researchers to our own internal developer off site hackathon, where they compete to create the next great thing – a functional prototype, related to our technology, that makes our operations better.

Your ideas may become a reality – and even change the future of security.

Site Reliability Engineering Manager

Columbia | Maryland | United States

Your Role:
We are building a fabulous engineering culture, and are committed to hiring the very best. In light of this, we are looking to add a superb manager for our Site Reliability Engineering team, who are on a journey from a traditional infrastructure and operations team, to a group of SREs who apply principles of both software and systems engineering to keep our platform available, responsive and resilient. We need a strategic manager with great vision to help take the team to the next level.

The SRE team owns all of our infrastructure, currently running on Kubernetes in AWS while working closely with the Database Reliability Engineering team.  As systems evolve, the goal is to export a mostly self-service platform to internal customers that allows for increased engineering velocity and minimal toil for SREs.
As the Engineering Manager for the SRE team, you will be responsible for continuing to build out a world-class, cutting-edge team embodying the SRE philosophy and methodology.  Great foundations have been laid, and you will bring strategic vision and implementation to accelerate the transition, reduce toil, and increase automation at every level.  We are investing heavily in a DevOps culture, and you will play a big part in fine tuning collaboration with the development teams.

Your Opportunity:
  • Manage a great team of emerging SREs, providing vision and strategic leadership

  • Own all infrastructure for the Tenable.io platform, working closely with the DRE team, ensuring its availability, reliability, scalability, fault tolerance and performance

  • Foster the adoption of software and systems engineering within the team and mentor individuals in their growth into mature SREs

  • Drive strategic initiatives to automate every part of the Tenable.io platform to allow it to run and heal itself wherever possible

  • Manage the work and priorities of the team (we use Kanban), to facilitate the reduction of toil work and establish a great toil vs development work balance

  • Partner with our development teams to help them build reliable and scalable services, and resolve any production issues as quickly as possible

  • Stay abreast of the latest SRE methodologies, and skillfully adopt the appropriate ones

  • Foster innovation within the team, and join others carving out the new SRE discipline

What You’ll Need:
  • 5+ years’ experience managing technical teams, ideally infrastructure-focused

  • Excellent leadership and communication skills (both verbal and written)

  • Proven record managing agile projects, delivering on time and ideally under budget

  • Strong technical background in software and systems engineering, cloud, and proven track record supporting distributed systems at scale

  • Change agent, with the ability to skillfully and strategically implement the SRE vision

  • Superior people skills, with proven ability to recruit, retain and grow top-notch talent

And Ideally:
  • Solid experience with Kubernetes or similar technology

  • Previous use of Kanban and/or Scrum

  • The nexus of systems and software engineering makes your heart sing!
