Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) at Tinder | Powderkeg

Location: Dallas, Texas

Employment Type: Regular

Team: Engineering - +1 Labs

Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) at Match Group are part Infrastructure Engineer, part Security Analyst, and part Software Engineer. But we are all heart when it comes to helping our users find love in a safe, reliable, and private space on the internet.

We are the owners of the infrastructure, security posture, and of course: production uptime.

You will be instrumental in helping Match Group stabilize communications across all brands, as well as expanding the security operations of the company.

Hope is not a strategy. SREs work with the rest of the company to ensure their projects are delivered in a secure, performant, and repeatable manner.

This comes from our passion to automate the boring stuff so we can concentrate on the interesting work that comes with maintaining and growing a world class infrastructure at a global scale.
