About the role

What you'll do:

  • Respond to automated alerts and execute playbooks.
  • Manage ongoing incidents, using your understanding of Shopify to involve the right teams and resolve as quickly as possible.
  • Clean up the noise in our signals, ensuring we can get an understanding of the system and debug a problem easily.
  • Set the standards with teams for building resilient, debuggable systems.
  • Ensure we never fail for the same reason twice.
  • Follow up on each incident to ensure the appropriate action items are in place and prioritized.
  • Help teams build tools to automate the toil of on call duties.

About you:

  • Based in Canada or the U.S, and willing to work core hours in Hawaii Standard Time (-10 UTC). There is also the possibility of relocation for the right candidate.
  • You have experience handling on call shifts for mission-critical systems.
  • You have been responsible for the tools and processes used to debug and correct failures in those systems.
  • You reject the idea that on call has to be a terrible, disruptive experience.
  • You are a generalist developer who is comfortable with multiple languages such as C, Rust, Ruby, and Go.
  • You have done hands-on development with cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCE, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker).

Nice to have but not necessary:

  • You have handled multiple on call shifts, and have navigated more than one incident through to the retrospective process.
  • You have experience working with a variety of open-source software including nginx, redis, Memcached and MySQL.
  • You have familiarity with network and web protocols, from IP to HTTP.
