We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical.

As a Senior Manager of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), you will lead a team of SREs who are responsible for the day-to-day operation, monitoring, stability, availability, performance, and support of our cloud-based infrastructure.

Infrastructure reliability is critical to Collective Health and its customers, as it’s the foundation on which our healthcare software and services are built. You’ll work with engineering and other stakeholders to evolve, establish, and monitor key SLIs, SLOs, and SLAs for our cloud infrastructure. This also includes the definition and monitoring of meaningful and reasonable error budgets, cost optimization, capacity planning, and incident management. You will establish and maintain Key Performance Indicators and dashboards for the overall health of our cloud-based infrastructure.

With a focus on continuous improvement for our deployed cloud footprint, you and your team will drive root cause analyses and learnings from infrastructure issues through post-mortem processes and reviews in order to ensure continuous improvement of the overall platform. You will identify and implement cloud infrastructure enhancements as required to maintain the performance of systems in response to business growth.

The Senior Manager of SRE is a hands-on technical role and requires a thorough understanding of all components of modern cloud-based infrastructure. The Senior Manager will also focus on coaching an existing team of Site Reliability Engineers on best practices and processes toward creating a world-class SRE function.

What you'll do:

  • Lead a team of SREs who are responsible for the day-to-day operation, monitoring, stability, availability, performance, and support of our cloud-based infrastructure.

To be successful in this role, you'll need:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Management Information Systems, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5+ years of experience in managing reliability focused software engineering teams for a cloud-based infrastructure.
  • 7+ years of hands-on SRE experience
  • Experience in establishing a metrics-driven SRE Network Operating Center, optimizing for site performance, availability, and incident response time
  • Experience leading high-impact cloud-based infrastructure initiatives.
  • Familiarity with a wide range of cloud-based infrastructure technologies, such as those used in container orchestration, data orchestration, business middleware, security, and governance. This includes AWS (S3, EC2, RDS, more), Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, Jenkins, and Grafana.
  • Demonstrated organizational, communication, leadership, and internal customer service skills.
  • Proven ability to build a strong and diverse Site Reliability Engineering culture and work environment that is both supportive and outcome-focused
