As a Senior Site Reliability engineer at IOG, you will be working with a group of infrastructure and tooling engineers to develop, support, and maintain the product platform for the Smart Contracts tribe.

You will work with the application teams in the tribe to understand their development, deployment and other infrastructure requirements, design and implement new functionality on the platform to enable them to meet their needs without ongoing support or expertise outside of their application domain, teach and support them in leveraging the platform's capabilities, and operate and maintain the infrastructure making the platform possible.


  • Design platform capabilities with clean domain-specific interfaces to enable application teams to meet their own needs with full understanding and ownership
  • Implement platform interfaces on top of standard 3rd party tools and services
  • Document and educate the application teams on platform interfaces and operation
  • Maintain an understanding of the current and planned state of supported applications, proactively identifying any capabilities needed for them to effectively manage and deliver their own work
  • Continually improve platform interfaces and implementation in alignment with evolving knowledge of the requirements of security, efficiency, and maintainability
  • Maintain and operate shared cloud infrastructure, including incident resolution
  • Participate in the on-call rota
  • Build tools and processes to reduce maintenance overhead over time
  • Support application teams in resolving ad hoc issues not yet supported by the platform
