As part of our well-structured SRE team, you will work closely with internal domain experts to ensure high-quality, stable environments for our internal and external customers.

The principal goals of the EVM sidechain project are twofold: 1. To allow Solidity DApps and EVM development to run on Cardano. 2. To build a trustless / permissionless bridge between Cardano and its side chains to guarantee the security of user assets in comparison to more centralized / permissioned solutions.

Your mission

  • Bear SRE expert knowledge into the project
  • Execute on premeditated SRE procedures on behalf of the project
  • Tend to project ad-hoc SRE requirements
  • Make the SRE team situationally aware about the project
  • Participate in the SRE on-call rotation
  • Support your SRE colleagues on other projects when needed.


Your expertise

  • Experience using tools from the nix ecosystem
  • Scripting and programming skills with the ability to develop custom tool integrations
  • Experience using version control with git
  • Experience maintaining bug tracking, code review, coverage analysis, agile tracking, and testing tools
  • Experience with continuous integration tools
  • Experience administering application servers, containers, and web servers
  • Experience with AWS, Google Compute, or other cloud providers
  • Hashicorp Nomad (or a transferable kubernetes) stack experience
  • Proficient English language and communication skills
  • A strong interest for, or knowledge of, statically-typed functional programming languages such as Haskell, Scala, Purescript, or Rust
  • Bonus: Specific experience with Scala
  • Years of experience in build and release engineering, Linux operational excellence, and automation
  • Manifest and uncompromising commitment to the principles of GitOps
  • Ability to work well on your own and with a team, valuing cooperation and collaboration above all, you need good communication skills for this role.
