An SRE at Bloomberg is a hybrid of systems and software engineering who is trusted to improve the stability and availability of the production environment through automation. We're responsible for monitoring, provisioning, configuration management, orchestration, capacity planning, deployment and rollback, incident management, and systems development life cycle practices.
The Systems Automation Engineering group is trusted to build out core automation components and establish the necessary tooling and architectural standards for all aspects of orchestration and configuration management. This includes Chef, Salt, and a testing framework for both.
You'll work with modern, open-source tooling while maintaining mission-critical systems hosting a wide array of applications for the Bloomberg Terminal product. System Engineers will trust you as an escalation point and you'll regularly collaborate to maintain the stability and performance of operating systems and servers. We'll depend on you to advise on design, architecture, and utilization of enterprise-class configuration and orchestration systems.
