Role Description

In this role, you will be developing the automation, systems and processes that enable rapid prototyping by development teams, while ensuring tight alignment with compliance and availability goals. As we evolve the infrastructure and move towards a service oriented architecture, it is imperative that we redefine how we think about operationalizing services in the future. You’ll be collaborating across Engineering and Product to ensure this is a core part of our SDLC.

The SRE Application Services Team is packed with motivated engineers who understand the impact of our work to Box’s success. That breeds an amazing sense of ownership and pride within the team - values we believe will be key to adapt how we work in a world of micro-services and hybrid clouds. We would love to add someone who has seen this movie before (or parts thereof!) and can help shape the team’s vision with their domain expertise in one or more of public clouds, containers and cloud-native apps.

You will have visibility across all of Engineering and have impact directly on the entire business.
