Senior Site Reliability Engineer at Xevo
Bellevue, WA, US

Drive the future with Xevo

Drivers have access to an unprecedented and ever-expanding amount of data about the world around them. We’re harnessing this data to build the best in-car tools tailored to the unique needs and environment of drivers and passengers. Utilizing data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and user feedback, we design user experiences that are uncommonly smart, safe, personal, and memorable. 

Xevo’s software already powers over 25 million connected car dashboards today, but we’re not stopping there. We’re scaling our software platform to tens of millions of vehicles already on the road and adding millions of new vehicles manufactured each year.  We have infrastructure engineering challenges covering cloud orchestration, build & deployment automation, observability, and developer tools.

Work like you mean it

You may have read about (or even worked with) SRE teams that do primarily product support or production operations but that's not us; we're not your father's server janitors.

Instead, we're designing and building Xevo's next-generation technical infrastructure and, along the way, will be standardizing and optimizing our internal platforms across all of Xevo’s products and environments.

Our SRE team is:

  • Diving deep into Docker and Kubernetes for a smoother service lifecycle.
  • Developing infrastructure middleware that makes service telemetry a no-brainer.
  • Automating absolutely everything (rollouts, rollbacks, scaling, you name it) using industry standard tools (Ansible, Terraform, Prometheus, etc...) and, when that doesn't cut it, we're writing our own.
  • Redefining success at every level then measuring it everywhere we can -- for feedback into our automation loop.

And the beauty of it is, we're still charting our future. If you've always wanted to get in on the ground floor of designing and building the next great infrastructure platform, then this team is for you!

 This is a hands on role - but you will also be making major design contributions to our future infrastructure. We're looking for someone who understands computer systems inside and out, knows a server from a service, and prefers to solve problems by writing elegant, reusable and maintainable code.

You don't need to be a computer scientist -- just smart, energetic and ready to change the world!

Your mission (should you choose to accept it.)

  • Design and develop enterprise level, cloud-infrastructure tools and services.
  • Partner with one or more software engineering teams providing insight into systems and service reliability best practices.
  • Identify areas for systems and infrastructure improvements, research possible solutions, author and defend design proposals and implement approved designs in a timely manner.
  • Repeatedly automate away your current job, over and over again.
  • Provide guidance to engineering management and staff regarding proper enterprise systems security practices.

So, do you have what it takes?

  • BS in a technical discipline or commensurate experience.
  • 8-10+ years’ total technical experience.
  • 3-5+ years’ experience managing cloud infrastructure at scale (AWS preferred).
  • Expert level understanding of Linux/UNIX and TCP/IP fundamentals.
  • Professional software engineering experience in multiple languages (Go [golang], Python, C++, Java or JavaScript -- Go and Python preferred).
  • A security-first mindset.
  • Clear and effective communication skills.

Bonus if you have some of these.

  • Contributions to Go or Python based open source projects.
  • Recent successful implementation of containerized microservices using Docker, Kubernetes or similar.
  • Data science and/or statistical analysis experience.
  • An affinity towards microservices, gRPC and Protocol Buffers.
