As a Site Reliability Engineer at Rails Machine, your primary goals will be to ensure our customer’s applications are available, fast, and secure. Our customers need the best service, support, and products, and we need you to help us deliver.

We offer two main products: managed infrastructure and managed operations. Through managed infrastructure, we provide automation, infrastructure, and scalability in our own data center on our own hardware. We provide both bare-metal and virtualized hosting options for our customers, and you’ll work directly with them to ensure their goals are met through automation, analysis, and hardware. And via managed operations, we provide custom, consulting-based solutions on top of any cloud vendor, as best meets the customer’s needs.

We give our customers the ability to reach out to us like they would an internal DevOps team!

You’ll work with virtualization and container technologies, and setup and automate high availability data clusters (MySQL Galera, PostgreSQL replication, Redis failover, ElasticSearch clustering, Memcached, MongoDB etc.). You'll manage application instances built with Ruby-on-Rails and Elixir/Phoenix (to name a few) and layer on top of those management, orchestration, monitoring, and alerting for fleets of instances. If you’ve ever wanted to work at a scale that few companies do, you’ll find the right challenge here at Rails Machine!
