Tasktop is looking for an experienced software engineer to fill a Senior Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) position that has experience operating and developing cloud offerings.

  • Maintaining security, reliability, and availability of Tasktop’s cloud services
  • Developing deployment, scaling, HA, DR, and backup automation
  • Creating and refining monitoring and alerting infrastructure
  • Refining playbooks for operations
  • Participating in blameless post mortems and learning from all of our incidents
  • Close cross functional work with Product Development teams to design and develop new product features that meet our operational profile


What will the team be like?
You will be working on a small but highly capable team to develop and operate the operational toolset for Tasktop’s cloud products.

  • Experience in systems automation and tooling:
    • Containerization technology such as Docker and Kubernetes

  • Experience with scripting languages such as Python, Ruby, Perl, or Bash
  • Experience with database deployment and operations (Postgres and/or AWS Aurora)
