Job Description:

The Senior Manager, DevOps & Site Reliability Engineering contributes to the strategic objectives of the Innovation Division by providing 24x7 support of cloud-based production platform by managing SRE & DevOps team members across multiple geographical zones (USA, Europe, Asia).
This is a headquarters based technical management position focusing on development, leadership and oversight of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) department.

Who?

You're someone who enjoys being directly accountable for the reliability of a business-critical, large-scale enterprise system. You're comfortable guiding and making decisions with limited information and are capable of operating within the trade-offs present when solving for immediate needs versus solving with bigger scale solutions. You might be considered a subject matter expert in systems reliability and you feel rewarded by working to develop operability culture in a quickly growing and changing environment. You're comfortable owning a wide and diverse set of problem areas and are willing to go out of your lane to affect change. You may have developed one or more metrics, log aggregation or performance analysis systems in your career.


What?

A great day in this role: You just solved a critical customer issue. Your agile team is anticipating kudos across Customer Success & Product Engineering as they've been busy shipping best-in-class measurement and analytics tools to our platform that are ready to use and as approachable as possible. You've just attended a postmortem for a severe incident, and during the course of the meeting the team identified a big-scale way to add a new capability to the platform that not only prevents that type of outage, but potential similar outages in many other areas of the business. You've saved the company a significant amount of capex and lost revenue in your first 6 months, paying for your own position in the process! And a happy customer is an add-on revenue.


Why?

Our DevOps / Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team is an investment by Cloud to make "big-hammer", impactful changes to RingCentral that help us constantly run better, faster, and cheaper. This team centralizes the concerns of developing and providing measurements and guidance, so every engineer is able to improve availability and efficiency in their area of the RingCentral cloud. SRE improves RingCentral's customer experiences by ever-increasing availability and performance; reclaiming time spent by our engineers diagnosing issues or configuring software; reducing the total cost of owning and operating products and services. We have a cultural foundation built on diversity, inclusion and innovation and we want you and your ideas to thrive at RingCentral. Come join us.


Where?

The position is located in Denver, CO. You will enjoy our incredible perks. RingCentral fosters career development and provides leadership training, education, workshops, and coaching for all employees. RingCentral promotes a healthy work-life balance by providing catered lunch and breakfast on a daily basis as well as a kitchen stocked with a variety of complimentary beverages and delicious snacks.
