For Our Client, Sixt in Munich we are currently recruiting solid and passionate Engineering Manager, Site Reliability.
Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is what you get when you treat operations as if it’s a software problem. The mission is to progress, protect, and provide for the software and systems behind all of Sixt’s public services – with an ever-watchful eye on their availability, latency, performance, and capacity.
This is an unusual job, unlike others in the industry. Like traditional operations groups, we keep important, revenue-critical systems up and running despite hurricanes, bandwidth outages, and configuration problems. Unlike traditional operations groups, we also have full access to and authority to fix, extend, and scale the code to keep it working and harden it against all the vagaries of the Internet. We hire people from both systems and software backgrounds. Strong candidates will have experience with both.
