Senior Site Reliability Engineer

With over 35 nationalities and a range of backgrounds represented in our Benevolent team, we aim to build an inclusive environment where our people can bring their authentic selves to work, be respected for who they are and the exceptional work they do. We welcome and actively encourage applications from all sections of society and are committed to offering equal employment opportunities regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, disability, age, citizenship, or any other basis. We see our diversity as an asset as we tackle challenging problems that bridge the gap between drug discovery and technology.


The Role

As a Senior Site Reliability Engineer, you will be working alongside our autonomous cross-functional squads. You will advocate high-quality engineering and best-practice in production software as well as providing the infrastructure to both build rapid prototypes and launch production-quality services. You must be a strong communicator who can explain what is required to build and deliver top quality software products. You will be keen to work with the rest of the team and develop collaboratively.

You will promote test-driven-development and other Agile best-practices for ensuring the software is resilient enough for our scientists to rely upon. You will be a core team member building and maintaining the underlying infrastructure that supports our AI-driven technology. You will also be adding your input into diverse areas such as authentication, network topology, sharded databases, scalable web services and interfaces to external data sources and APIs.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Implementing software solutions for cloud infrastructure in accordance with specification and best engineering practices.
  • Working towards improving long-term infrastructure availability and reliability.
  • Monitoring and handling incident response of the infrastructure, platforms and core engineering services.
  • Constructing pipelines to automate infrastructure and software deployments.
  • Troubleshooting infrastructure, network and software issues.
  • Staying up to date with recent technology trends and tools.
  • Automating repetitive manual processes and procedures.
  • Participating in on-call rotation to support Benevolent employees in their day-to-day activities.

We are looking for someone with

  • Ability to code and fluency in at least one programming language (Python/Java/Go/C++ preferred).
  • Hands-on experience with Kubernetes.
  • Good understanding and experience in administering cloud technologies (we work with AWS, but experience with other cloud providers is also a benefit!).
  • Good understanding of infrastructure-as-code and tools such as Ansible, Terraform, Helm.
  • Comfortable working with Unix-based operating systems.
  • Experience with cloud networking, cloud operations, automation and workload orchestration.
  • Basic understanding of network protocols such as TCP, HTTP/S and Load Balancing and the contexts in which they are used(for example, understanding the differences between AWS Application Load Balancer and AWS Network Load Balancer).
  • Understanding of quality of service measurement tools (SLIs, SLOs, SLAs).
  • Experience with monitoring and alerting solutions (for example InfluxDB/Grafana/Prometheus).
  • High-level understanding of database technologies(for example, relational, NoSQL, Graph) and their basic use cases.

We share a passion for being part of a mission that matters, and we are always looking for curious and collaborative people who share our values and want to be part of our journey.  If that sounds like a fit for you, hit the apply button and join us.
