At Cloud Academy, we‘re builders. Learning new technology is just as exciting for us as building it. We do this through utilizing and developing cutting-edge technology and empowering students, developers, engineers and companies to build and grow products with robust and constantly updated cloud skills. Now is your chance to join our talented team that delivers unparalleled educational content to developers worldwide.

In this role you will help build and automate our release pipeline owned by our Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team.

SREs are responsible for creating and maintaining a fully automated pipeline where developers can release features when they are ready without any changes required by an operations team.

In this role you’ll be responsible for creating the architecture to make the above a reality, and keeping it running smoothly in a high growth environment.

This will require you to actively collaborate with other team members and quickly achieve goals without breaking things in production in the process.

This team works closely with our engineers to make sure they have the tools they need for success.

You’ll meaningfully contribute to a fully automated CI/CD pipeline system, and help build and operate a fully serviced container delivery system where an engineer can build, test, and release on demand.

Another area this team will cover will be Chaos Engineering. This will include everything from doing production load testing to vulnerability injection to site and regional disaster simulation.
