Job Description

You're Brilliant. We're Hiring. 
We are a small, fast growing start-up, eager to build meaningful, everyday apps at scale. Our first product is Sunshine Contacts, but we are excited about building so much more with your help.
You like solving problems! You are an amazing Site Reliability Engineer who loves to help build and operate the infrastructure and tools to allow for the speedy development and release of software. You are adaptable and assist as the company’s goto IT expert as well -- while we are working remotely, and eventually when we are back in our Palo Alto office.
As an early team member, you are comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and will be responsible for supporting both our production infrastructure as well as the IT needs of a current team of twenty. As the company grows, you are able to anticipate and architect the infrastructure needs of the company with minimal direction and oversight. 
In this role you partner closely with System Engineers, Security Engineers, and everyone else in the company, so we are looking for someone who likes to help others and enjoys solving our IT and production operations challenges.
      • 5+ years of experience in a Site Reliability Engineer
      • 3+ years of experience with Amazon AWS Security Groups, VPCs, CloudWatch, AWS CLI, Linux, Single-Sign-On, automation, containers, and security
      • Experience with IT systems --- LANs, WANs, networking, computer systems, IT provisioning, network and system security, future upgrade recommendations, troubleshooting user IT issues, maintaining network facilities and individual machines, as well as deploying network servers and VPN gateway --- is a plus
      • Partner with our Engineering, Talent, and Customer Support teams frequently, so there will be support as needed during nights and weekends. Set up the processes and write documentation for employees
      • Good written and spoken communication skills
      • BS degree in IT, Engineering, Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent experience preferred, but not required
    • Under normal circumstances, employees must be able to and willing to lawfully work out of our downtown Palo Alto, California office. However, under the current circumstances, remote work is being accommodated in order to comply with safety measures.
People matter to us a lot. Just celebrating diversity isn’t enough -- we commit to unabashedly tailoring our hiring practices, our processes, and our culture to foster an inclusive workplace for people of all backgrounds. Sunshine is proud to be an equal opportunity employer working to raise the standards of diversity in tech.
