Senior Site Reliability Engineer

| Greater LA Area

Honey is helping millions save money when they shop online, and we're growing! We’re looking for a Senior Site Reliability Engineer to design and implement infrastructure solutions to improve the scalability and efficiency of Honey’s services. The ideal candidate should possess a background in systems engineering, automation, cloud computing, and DevOps tooling, as well as strong problem solving abilities. We're still a fairly small team of 65 engineers so this will be an extremely hands on and important role for us.

What You'll Do:

  • Maintain the core infrastructure
  • Manage, monitor, and improve highly scalable, distributed systems to create highly available services
  • Collaborate with engineers in the deployment and scaling of new product features
  • Investigate production outages, and help determine root causes / implement fixes
  • Identify and automate repetitive, manual tasks.
  • Develop effective tooling, alerts, and responses to both identify and address reliability risks
  • Debug software at the code and infrastructure level
  • Plan for the growth of Honey’s infrastructure and help define best practices
  • Participate in an on-call rotation
  • Provide technical leadership and mentor junior team members

About You:

  • At least three years of professional experience with a high-level programming language such as Python, Ruby, or JavaScript
  • Experience with git
  • Production experience with major public cloud providers - we use GCP, but experience with AWS or Azure is also fine.
  • Docker & Kubernetes
  • Comfort with databases and in-memory key/value stores.
  • Experience with monitoring and continuous integration and delivery
    • Monitoring: Nagios, Stackdriver, Graphite, or similar tools
    • CI / CD: Jenkins, Circle CI, Travis, or similar tools
  • Experience with business continuity and capacity planning best practices
  • Infrastructure automation
  • Solid knowledge of Linux/UNIX and networking fundamentals
  • Passionate about open-source software and the latest system architecture trends
  • Curious, and able to communicate effectively

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with Node.js and NPM
  • Previous experience with GCP
  • Experience with service discovery or service meshes

Insider's spotlight

What are some social events your company does?

We have a regular company all-hands that gives everybody from different teams a chance to catch up with each other, quarterly recreational tournaments (usually ping-pong or competitive video games), board game nights, and a lot of the time just hanging out at whatever local events may be going on.


Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration plays a big role in ensuring deploys go smoothly. Sync ups between Engineering, Product, Design, and beyond, occur on a daily basis. Whether it’s a drop-in at someone’s desk, a Slack message to update a spec/status of a ticket, or a full on meeting--the communication never stops, to ensure that we’re all on the same page.


QA Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Being flexible and stepping out of my comfort zone. At Honey, several times I’m given the opportunities I’ve never had prior to working here. For example, I’ve had to schedule, plan and drive meetings. I’ve also had to get used to constantly presenting my work to my peers. It’s really great because it’s taught me how to be a better communicator.


Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a completely open culture at the company, from seating to communication. Every Friday we do a company wide stand-up where we are as transparent as possible. The only way we can hit our objectives is if everybody is operating with the same information.



How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Honey when there were only 10 people in the company and today we have over 100 employees. In the past 2 years we’ve seen tremendous growth both internally and externally which has allowed me the opportunity to build out a team underneath me, work across departments and provide input for the product and company’s future.
