Posted 28 days ago

Before we dive into the role, let’s talk about flexibility. Our Zipsters can choose where and when they work by taking full advantage of our hybrid-work environment. So whether you’re mostly remote, mostly in the office or a mix of the two, you’ll be empowered to do whatever brings out your best.

About us

We are Zip, a global Buy Now, Pay Later company providing fair and seamless solutions that simplify how millions of people pay. Our journey began in Australia, has taken us to 13 countries (so far) - and we’re just getting started.

We exist to create a world where people can live fearlessly today, knowing they’re in control of tomorrow. Focused on product innovation that puts people at the centre, we put the financial well-being of our customers and merchant partners at the heart of everything that we do.

We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer who will work cross functionally with our engineering squads taking ownership for incident management, observability and continuous development and maintenance of our service catalogue. 

You’ll get the opportunity to join a team with an established framework already in place but that still has plenty of growth and development potential, meaning there is a big opportunity for you to make an impact at scale.

If you’re interested in having meaningful conversations around SRE, helping to up-skill and educate the wider engineering community on critical processes and issues then this role will be suited to you. 

To help us level up you'll bring:

  • Experience with monitoring/APM tools such as NewRelic or Prometheus.
  • Software development experience, comfortable with multiple languages.
  • Experience with a cloud platform (we use AWS, but Azure or GCP are great too!)
  • Kubernetes experience.
  • Strong understanding of monitoring and alerting concepts.
  • Solid understanding of the metrics and fundamentals of observability.
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to negotiate and influence.
  • We’re proud to be a values-led business. They guide us in everything we do - how we work together and create game-changing experiences for our customers and fellow Zipsters.

    If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

    We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
