Tasks and Responsibilities
Ownership –You will be part of the SRE team, whose mission is the
shared full stack ownership of a collection of services, with our Service
Development and Operations SRE partners.
Scope – You will understand the end-to-end configuration,
technical dependencies, and overall behavioral characteristics of the
production services you own. In partnership with your Service Development and
Operations SRE partners, you will have the responsibility to ensure that
services are designed and delivered to be mission critical with focus on
monitoring, telemetry, security, resiliency, scale, and performance.
Design – You will partner with the SRE Architect, Service
Development and operations SRE teams in defining and implementing improvements
in service architecture, both current and future.
- You will be an expert at articulating
technical characteristics of your services and the dependencies between
services, and guide service Development teams to engineer and add SRE
capabilities to the Oracle SaaS/ERP service portfolio.
- You will participate in feature design
reviews to ensure Monitoring, Telemetry, Reliability, Automation, and Runtime
Debuggability is represented as a first class, design time priority.
- You will provide technical leadership
in defining software engineering patterns, practices, and coding standards
focused on increasing reliability and resilience of Oracle SaaS/ERP services.
You will deliver code artifacts (reusable components, plug-ins, blueprints,
sample code, scripts and tooling, etc.) to streamline adoption by Service
Engineering – You will understand and be able to communicate the
scale, capacity, security, performance attributes and requirements of the
services you own. You are a Subject Matter Expert, able to understand and
communicate every characteristic of your service stack, such as:
- Degradation and behavior under load of
the services and their dependencies.
- End-to-end tuning needs, optimizing
resource utilization, as load patterns fluctuate.
- Instrumentation and metrics that
clearly describe the service behaviors.
- Scaling requirements and patterns.
- Resiliency and recoverability, ensuring
that backup / restore and disaster recovery capabilities are implemented,
tested and maintained.
Experts - You are the ultimate escalation point for complex or
critical issues that have not yet been documented as SOPs for Level1 staff. You
will usually get called in during major incidents as an SME, when the
source of a problem is unclear. You will have the deep understanding of service
topology and their dependencies required to troubleshoot issues and define
Response – You will be the primary author of technical content for
both customer and internal communication used throughout the incident response
process, e.g. postmortem/root cause analysis, end-to-end repair item
definition, fixes in production.
- Automation – You
will have a clear understanding of automation and orchestration principles, and
will be eager to automate, wherever and whenever the possibility arises, while
simultaneously eliminating technical debt. Automation must be part of your DNA.
- Prevention -
Using data-driven incident findings, you will work on solutions that will
ultimately prevent the incident/problem from arising ever again, and interim
solutions to more quickly resolve the problem next time.
