What's your new role about?

We are here to provide the data, tools and guidance to help our developers build best practice around scale, reliability and observability into every release, reducing customer-affecting incidents and speeding up recovery times when they happen. Leading to happier customers, and happier engineers! 

Based in multiple countries we work together to make the product teams’ lives happier, by helping them understand how to build well and how to monitor well. 

We succeed or fail as a team. Either way we use Agile processes to constantly measure and improve ourselves. We are driven by data. We are adaptable to new challenges and can switch context. We can advise without judgement and listen without fear. 
Plus, we get to play with cool stuff sometimes :)


  • Generally, people in the team have many of the following skills: 
  • Understanding how Operations works in production in the real world 
  • Writing clean, effective code to deliver solutions and automation 
  • An engineer’s mindset to problem-solving. 
  • Have done all of this at scale, using IaC, on some form of cloud 
  • Understanding of the challenges and advantages of a microservice architecture 
  • Concepts of observability 
  • SLIs/SLOs 
  • Error budgets 
  • Alerting strategies 
  • We are also keen to learn and to teach, to take what we find and share it with the rest of the organisation and beyond. We are curious, team players willing to get involved. 

What we can do together?

  • Learn and share great reliability practices, inside and outside the company. 
  • Understand the data behind what we do. 
  • Engineer solid solutions to real-world problems. 
  • Alternate Fridays to play with what we want. 
  • And sleep well because the phone isn’t going off.
