ABOUT THE ROLE:
- This is a Senior Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) position in
our Security Operations team. We're not the team that looks at SEIM
alarms all day, or that manually clicks buttons to run a security
scan - we're the team that automates all that. We're looking for
builders and makers, not just breakers or analysts.
- It's more important that you have experience building rather
than breaking. If you have security experience, great! If not, but
you're interested in learning the security side, we'd love to teach
you. Senior Engineers contribute to more than our product - they
build up our team. Through a combination of mentoring, technical
leadership, and/or direct management of small teams, they make
others better and raise the bar for those around them.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
- You have a sustained track record of making significant,
self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful
projects. You think beyond just the task at hand to deeply
understand the 'why' behind what you are doing.
- You can code. At our scale we are not interested in "boutique"
manual management. You code with languages such as C#, Python, Go,
- You design for scale. You manage cattle, not pets. In other
words, you understand that the only way to scale is to avoid
special snowflakes of systems and applications. You design systems
to auto-scale and auto-heal. Via automation, you relentlessly
strive to eliminate manual toil.
- You are a broadly skilled engineer with an interest in
information security, risk management, service reliability,
automation, and/or monitoring. But you have the breadth of
knowledge necessary to support a wide variety of software and
- You understand modern architectures. You know why Docker and
containers are more than just buzzwords, but you are cautious
against overcomplexity and overengineering.
- You are comfortable working on physical gear or in the cloud.
Our hybrid environment requires objective knowledge of
infrastructure, equally comfortable with traditional, physical
servers as well as the software abstractions present in cloud
platforms such as AWS.
- You work with confidence and without ego. Our engineers have
deep knowledge and exercise a high degree of leadership in their
daily work. You have strongly-held, defensible ideas, and advocate
for what you believe is right. You are also adept at identifying
and evaluating trade-offs, willing to be proven wrong, and quick to
walk through fire to support your fellow teammates. You often have
strong opinions but weakly held.
- You value, seek out, and foster diversity. We are a global team
from many diverse backgrounds, with different experiences and
perspectives. To complement this team, you will welcome ideas that
are different from your own and be skilled at finding and building
from common ground.
- You are a creative thinker, not bound by "the way things have
always been done". What you know is less important than how well
you learn and innovate. We don't need engineers who know all the
answers; we need engineers who can invent the answers no one has
thought of yet, to the questions yet to be asked.
Note: Our SRE position is eligible for remote work based on
WHAT WE CARE ABOUT:
What and how you can contribute is what's important to us. Our
consideration is not limited by the kind of education you have or
the specific technologies you have experience with. Variety of
technical challenge is one of the best things about working at The
Trade Desk as an engineer, but we do not expect you to know every
technology we use when you start. What we care about is that you
can learn quickly and solve complex problems using the best tools
for the job.
Our culture runs much deeper than just having fun together
(though, we do that well too...) - the people we want on our team
are trust-builders, generous givers, scrappy problem solvers, and
gritty pursuers of excellence.
Does this sound like you? If so, we welcome your application and
the chance to meet you.
