THE CHALLENGE

Eventbrite's business continues to grow and scale rapidly, powering millions of events. Event creators and event goers need new tools and technologies that empower them to have the most meaningful live experiences. As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will be part of a team that ensures that the Eventbrite platform runs efficiently, securely, and at scale.


THE TEAM

We're a people-focused Engineering organization: the people on our team value working together in small teams to solve significant problems, supporting an active culture of mentorship and inclusion, and pushing themselves to learn new things daily. Pair programming, weekly demos, tech talks, and quarterly hackathons are at the core of how we’ve built our team and product. We believe in engaging with the community, regularly hosting free events with some of the top technical speakers, and actively contributing to open source software (check out Britecharts as an example!). Our technology spans the web, mobile, API, big data, machine learning, search, physical point of sale, and scanning systems.

The role is based in the newly opened Engineering Office in Madrid, Spain, where a growing group of highly-skilled engineers is developing Eventbrite’s global platform and operations.

  • Partner closely with the Security team to ensure that Eventbrite’s systems, services and data are protected.
  • Train engineers in the art of being on-call and triaging production issues.

THE SKILL SET

  • Extensive relevant industry experience in SRE, DevOps, or System Engineer roles, ideally 5-7 years.

  • Experience with cloud technologies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform.
  • Configuration management experience (Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Salt)

  • Broad technical troubleshooting and performance tuning experience.
  • Experience managing high user volume, rapidly growing or critical production service environments.
  • Experience leveraging monitoring tools such as Datadog and Graphite.
