The Opportunity

Culture Amp is looking for a Lead Site Reliability Engineer to join the Perform Camp. If you love working in AWS and you’re excited by empowering engineers to create reliable software that will scale to millions of users then we’d love to speak with you.

Our product camps are made up of several different, highly skilled teams working across our entire stack – from cross-cutting user interface and back end code to infrastructure, data science and machine learning. This role will involve building reusable infrastructure as code in Typescript, providing reliability and infrastructure guidance to other engineers across the camp.

This role will also be working with other site reliability engineers to develop our in house tooling in Go to automate this year’s tasks, reducing toil and helping us get software to production faster, more reliably and more securely than before. 

Your role at Culture Amp

  • Work with engineering teams to balance speed to market and reliability.
  • Design, build, operate and monitor Culture Amp’s production infrastructure.
  • Evolve or replace existing infrastructure as we continue to break our monolith into Event Sourced CQRS microservices.

  • Build tooling and services to accelerate other teams in delivering features.
  • Collaborate on the architecture of applications and services to promote security, reliability, scalability and overall operability.
  • Communicate throughout the company to promote alignment of solutions.
  • Research, evaluate and introduce new patterns and technologies.

Engineering at Culture Amp is an inclusive practice distributed across cross-functional, lightweight Agile teams, many of which are remote-friendly, and all of which embrace flexible work arrangements. You should enjoy being surrounded by talented engineers, learning from others, as well as contributing to their development. To top it off, we hope you’ll share our passion for culture and changing the world of work for the better.
