Site Reliability Engineer, Americas
Edge & Node
Edge & Node stands as the revolutionary vanguard of web3, a vision of a world powered by individual autonomy, shared self-sovereignty and limitless collaboration. Established by trailblazers behind The Graph, we’re on a mission to make The Graph the internet’s unbreakable foundation of open data. Edge & Node invented and standardized subgraphs across the industry, solidifying The Graph as the definitive way to organize and access blockchain data. Utilizing a deep expertise in developing open-source software, tooling, and protocols, we empower builders and entrepreneurs to bring unstoppable applications to life with revolutionary digital infrastructure.
Edge & Node acts on a set of unwavering principles that guide our journey in shaping the future. We champion a decentralized internet—free from concentrated power—where collective consensus aligns what is accepted as truth, rather than authoritative dictation. Our commitment to censorship resistance reinforces our vision of an unyielding information age free from the grasp of a single entity. By building for open-source, we challenge the stagnant landscape of web2, recognizing that true innovation thrives in transparency and collaboration. We imagine a permissionless future where the shackles imposed by central gatekeepers are not only removed, but relegated to the dustbin of a bygone era. And at the foundation of it all, our trust shifts from malevolent middlemen to trustless systems, leveraging smart contracts to eliminate the age-old vulnerabilities of misplaced trust.
The Site Reliability team works closely with Engineering teams across Edge & Node to ensure the services we operate are reliable, performant, and predictable. We focus on a mix of software development, operational automation and collaboration with other teams to help take our service delivery to the next level.
We are looking for a highly motivated engineer with either SRE or DevOps experience that can help us develop and automate the various services E&N operates as part of the Graph ecosystem. In this role, you will have the opportunity to drive availability and reliability across multiple engineering teams and work closely with them to ensure the operational aspects of managing services is automated and observable.
What You’ll Be Doing
Building automation and management systems to deliver the various services which enable The Graph to function.
Coaching teams across the Graph ecosystem on best practices for deployment, observability and scalability
Collaborate with other SREs and engineering leaders to ensure our architecture and operations are world-class
Cultivate a culture of learning by providing insight into performance and reliability at an operational level
What We Expect
Experience building and delivering large-scale software systems
Experience operating as a SRE (or similar role) with hands-on experience implementing processes that drive reliability and performance
History of working across organizations to codify and implement best practices for both operation and construction of software systems; knowledge of CI/CD best practices and ability to implement are considered a plus.
Deep working knowledge of Kubernetes (or other container orchestration systems) and associated technologies
Clear communication skills (written and verbal) to document processes and architectures
About the Graph
The Graph is the indexing and query layer of web3. The Graph Network’s self service experience for developers launched in July 2021. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph supports indexing data from multiple different networks including Ethereum, NEAR, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, tens-of-thousands of subgraphs have been deployed on the hosted service, and now subgraphs can be deployed directly on the network. Over 28,000 developers have built subgraphs for applications such as Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Art Blocks, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius, Decentraland, and many others.
If you are a developer building an application or web3 application, you can use subgraphs for indexing and querying data from blockchains. The Graph allows applications to efficiently and performantly present data in a UI and allows other developers to use your subgraph too! You can deploy a subgraph to the network using the newly launched Subgraph Studio or query existing subgraphs that are in the Graph Explorer. The Graph would love to welcome you to be Indexers, Curators and/or Delegators on The Graph’s mainnet. Join The Graph community by introducing yourself in The Graph Discord for technical discussions, join The Graph’s Telegram chat, and follow The Graph on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Medium! The Graph’s developers and members of the community are always eager to chat with you, and The Graph ecosystem has a growing community of developers who support each other.
The Graph Foundation oversees The Graph Network. The Graph Foundation is overseen by the Technical Council. Edge & Node, StreamingFast, Messari, Semiotic and The Guild are five of the many organizations within The Graph ecosystem.
