Senior Site Reliability Engineer
At Viaplay Group, we entertain millions of people every day through our streaming services, radio networks, TV channels and production studios. We believe in the power of content not just as a way of telling stories and touching lives, but also expanding worlds.
We may have started in the Nordics, but we have a global mindset and consider ourselves to be the international entertainment provider. This means we’re constantly launching our Viaplay streaming service in new markets and on the lookout for talented, curious, driven professionals to join us on our journey.
Right now, we’re searching for a Senior Site Reliability Engineer in our Stockholm office – are you ready to hit play on an exciting career change?
As a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) within the Content Infrastructure team, you will be a key contributor to our core infrastructure, ensuring that we retain stable, up to date and modern systems to serve Viaplay Group’s numerous services ranging from internal development to customer facing streaming.
You will be joining the current team of seven, with various skillsets that are responsible for large parts of Viaplay Group’s core infrastructure. The team works with these pillars of infrastructure – Compute, Network, Storage, and Security – in a hybrid cloud environment. We encourage a culture of open communication and information sharing to achieve efficiency in not having to solve the same problems twice.
Some examples of what we do:
- Provide private cloud services through Proxmox and Hyper-V
- Manage multi-petabyte storage to several departments
- Build and manage the streaming platform where all Viaplay Sports and streaming TV channels originate
We work in a rolling 24/7 oncall schedule where you will have a week of oncall duties once every 6 to 7 weeks.
As a part of the process, we will also do a background check with all candidates.
What we’re looking for
For you to thrive in the role, we believe you have a can-do attitude, sense of humor and the ability to work humbly with others. We also think that you are goal-oriented, driven, accurate with quality as peer, analytical and service-conscious.
We understand you may feel confident ticking certain boxes more than others and that’s why we always keep an open mind in our recruitment process. But, in order to thrive in this role, we do believe you’ll have at least some experience in the following:
- You should be knowledgeable working in various Linux distributions
- Possess proficiency in a scription or programming language, preferably Python and/or shell
- Experience in modern datacenter layer 2 and layer 3 networking
- Automation and configuration management tools – Salt, Ansible, etc…
- Experience managing distributed storage systems
What we are saying with the above is that you need a lot of experience in different fields, but it is not necessary to be an expert in any of them. The team strives to be sysadmin fullstack – thus the most important requirement is a solid Linux base.
With your experiences we believe you could contribute in the team with latest updates in the field and drive change in the domain.
It’s a bonus if you have:
- Docker and on-premises Kubernetes management
- Spectrum Scale management experience
- Load balancing and Caching optimization
We’ve got the basics covered (and then some)! 30 days of paid vacation every year, flexible work arrangements (that fully support hybrid set ups) and extra compensation on top of a parental pay lift.
Your wellbeing matters. We have an attractive pension and insurance scheme with full health care coverage should you need it.
A safe space to grow and up-skill with the freedom to try new things in autonomous teams. Our learning culture puts you in the driver’s seat of your own development, while always making sure you feel supported with regular knowledge-sharing sessions, technical training, mentorship opportunities and peer-to-peer networks.
An innovative environment with Hack Days, not once, but twice a year. This week-long initiative allows you to think outside the box and deliver creative, technical solutions that (more often than not) go on to be implemented, either in our product or our ways of working.
A genuinely international and diverse group of colleagues to connect with. We’re striving towards a 50:50 gender balance & we’re not far off – plus last time we checked, we have more than 60 different nationalities across our nine offices!
Entertainment is what we love, and entertainment is what we do. So, unlimited access to Viaplay seems only fair for you to get to know the product – including live sports & pay per view events, new release movie rentals, linear channels and more.
