Site Reliability Engineering combines software and systems engineering to build and run Staked's large-scale, fault-tolerant staking node infrastructure. Staked uses a variety of tools including Kubernetes, Jenkins, Prometheus, Grafana, and more to orchestrate these systems and ensure reliability.
SRE at Staked looks for creative ways to automate and secure our systems. This is a mindset and a set of engineering approaches to running better production systems. Much of our software development focuses on optimizing existing systems, building infrastructure and eliminating work through automation. The ideal SRE wants to limit time spent on operational work, proactively identify potential ways our systems can fail, and enjoys a blameless post-mortem when incidents occur.
Reliability is at the heart of Staked's promise to our customers, so the SRE role is at the heart of our technical team. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our investors reliably earn staking rewards. You will be responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining these systems alongside other members of the team.
