Looking for a job to get you out of bed?

We are looking for a Senior Site Reliability Engineer to join our Tech Ops team. We believe in maximizing the potential of our engineers by providing them with tools and systems that help reduce the time and effort to build and ship code. The role of the Senior SRE will be to build and maintain a secure and stable platform as well as be an advocate for best practices for monitoring and systems architecture to the rest of our engineering team.

Casper (casper.com (casper.com) ) was created to re-imagine sleep from the ground up, beginning with its obsessively engineered, outrageously comfortable mattress. All of Casper’s sleep products — including its pillow, bedding, and furniture — are developed in-house by the company’s award-winning R&D team in San Francisco. Casper was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World and its eponymous mattress was crowned one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions.

We are deeply committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce so that we represent all those who dream big equally.

* Build tools and systems to efficiently and securely provision, deploy, and configure an increasing amount of applications.
* Provide expertise on monitoring and build a resilient application infrastructure to alert teams of SLA violations and issues.
* Spread your knowledge of operations and systems to build a great engineering culture where teams can mostly own and operate apps and solutions independently.
* Lead engineers in issue identification, remediation, and analysis so teams can effectively triage and prevent future occurrences.

Our dream candidate is...

* Familiar with best practices and principles (such as the AWS Well-Architected Framework) for designing and building secure, scalable software systems, and working with application engineers to apply those principles to Casper systems.
* Fluent with the practice of treating infrastructure-as-code; has some experience with tools such as Terraform, Cloudformation, or Ansible and how to integrate it into our CI pipeline
* Able to build and support a variety of platforms, languages, and application stacks across different operating systems. (Rails, serverless, Java, IoT; Linux, Windows, embedded)
* Opinionated when it comes to operational details like monitoring and metrics and willing to educate our engineering partners on how to build a well-monitored system.
* Understands the merits and tradeoffs of different solutions to a problem and readily shares opinions on each.
* Experienced troubleshooting network and database issues and making recommendations for optimizations
