Bestow engineers are great teammates. You will be spending half of your time embedded with a product team.

The remainder of your time will be spent with other Site Reliability Engineers working on cross-cutting projects. As such, you have exceptional written and verbal communication skills.

Your Day to Day:
Do you want to build products to reinvent a centuries-old industry? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Challenges on which you can expect to work:

Cloud Infrastructure Projects

Administer our software platform including Kubernetes, Terraform Enterprise, ArgoCD, CircleCI, HashiCorp Vault, and PostgreSQL.
Evaluate, design, and implement solutions for continuous integration, continuous delivery, and DevOps productivity.

Collaborate with product engineers to identify observability/configurability gaps and make code-level improvements
Creating the tooling to improve the developer experience, enabling them to deliver business value faster and more effectively
Manage runbooks for incident response
Measure operational performance and make gradual improvements.
