About Pagoda

Pagoda is a technology services firm dedicated to developing core components for the NEAR Ecosystem. We believe that re-inventing how software is made and distributed is our greatest opportunity to open economic access to those who are not fully integrated into the global economy. Our products empower people to find opportunity, invent new experiences, and collaborate. Let's build an Open Web world. A world where people control their assets, data, and power of governance.

About The Role

Pagoda is seeking a passionate and experienced Senior Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) to join our team in building a resilient and scalable infrastructure for the NEAR blockchain ecosystem.

  • Define and monitor Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and mission-critical metrics, ensuring our systems meet the highest reliability standards.
  • Develop incident response playbooks and build robust monitoring and alerting capabilities to ensure swift and efficient issue resolution.
  • Work hand-in-hand with core blockchain, middleware, and applications teams to guarantee the security and high availability of our services.
  • Engage with our globally distributed team, participate in open-source projects, and connect with the vibrant NEAR community.

What We're Looking For

  • You excel at collaborating within distributed teams and fostering a positive, inclusive environment.
  • You believe in the power of collaboration and shared knowledge.
  • Proficiency in Python, deep understanding of UNIX internals, and experience with cloud provisioning (Terraform, Packer, Ansible, and Docker.), monitoring (Grafana, Prometheus, and Datadog), and CI/CD tools (Github Actions, BuildKite, and Jenkins.).
  • You approach challenges with a proactive, solution-oriented mindset.
  • 7+ years of experience in Site Reliability, DevOps, or Platform Engineering, managing large-scale distributed systems.
  • Strong automaton and tooling experience.
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or related fields is a must

We'd Love If You Have

  • Experience with Rust and/or Go, familiarity with multiple cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP), and knowledge of Kubernetes, Helm, and GitOps.
  • A basic understanding of blockchain technology will help you quickly grasp the unique challenges and opportunities in the Web3 space.
