    Job description

    Site Reliability Engineers (SRE) at Qonto craft a great user experience by building a highly scalable, fast and reliable platform and associating tooling. The SRE team currently includes 10 engineers focused on platform reliability and engineering efficiency as well as an IT support team of 4. They’re working closely with other Tech teams (Backend, Data, Security, etc.) to build and operate efficient, reliable, and scalable environments for customers and Qontoers.

    The engineering department at Qonto currently has over 140 highly skilled engineers, from all over the world, working closely in cross-functional teams to shape our finance solutions. They participate in the discussions on the direction of our banking product, manage how we will handle our ever growing user base needs and deliver high quality products in a fast paced environment.

    👩‍💻👨‍💻As a Head of SRE at Qonto, you will:

    • Bring energy and vision to the team
    • Manage platform reliability, engineering efficiency, and IT support teams
    • Ensure good collaboration and communication with other Tech teams
    • Coach Team Leads on their management practice and techniques
    • Drive the delivery of SRE and IT projects

    Our platform runs on a Kubernetes cluster hosted on AWS, with PostgreSQL as our database of choice, using Kafka for our event-driven architecture and ELK for logging and auditing, among many other tools, services and applications.

    🧠What you could work on

    As part of our SRE department, you will oversee three teams:

    ⚙️Platform Reliability: This team puts a strong emphasis on improving reliability, scalability and capacity planning of the platform (servers, containers, storage, databases, networking…) by engineering infrastructure as code. It focuses on automation to increase reliability. In 2021, the team could deploy a service mesh to support the growing number of services, redesign the database architecture to allow real-time analysis, and optimize logging costs, among other projects.

    🛠Engineering Efficiency: This team empowers software engineers from all cross-functional teams to seamlessly design, deploy, and maintain systems at scale. It acts as an internal consulting team to understand the needs of dev teams and help with adopting SRE patterns. In 2021, the team could optimize how backend engineers leverage APM and tracing to maintain high performance, increase scalability and stability with asynchronous processing, drive the adoption of a service mesh, etc.

    💻IT: Their mission is to improve Qontoers’ everyday IT experience in order to provide a smooth and secure journey. Upcoming projects include moving to a new building, deploying device management, and scaling inventory management.
