At SafetyCulture, we help businesses get better everyday. As the operational heartbeat of working teams, our technology gives workers a voice and leaders the visibility to make smart decisions. We’re constantly evolving our platform, expanding into sensors/IoT, Machine Learning, Scalable and Event-Driven Architecture to name a few, but we believe there’s more to be done.  

Our mission – and your opportunity — is to help solve the challenges faced in an increasingly distributed workforce. In short, to shape Engineering excellence, nurture emerging Engineering talent and build out an inclusive, high-performing interdisciplinary team. 

Recently valued at AU$2.2Bn, we’re investing our resources into creating and shaping a better workplace for all. We are growing fast and looking for talented, self-motivated people that value collaboration, growth and learning to join our team. 

The role
As a Site Reliability Manager at SafetyCulture, you'll lead a team of SREs to design, build and run resilient systems. You and your team will live and die by Murphy’s Law, knowing that anything that can go wrong will go wrong at the worst possible moment. You’ll foster a culture of designing for, and expecting, failure in production systems - a culture where learning and knowledge-sharing is expected. 

You’ll face exciting technical challenges as we scale, and be an integral part of the engineering leadership team. You love to solve sticky cross-service and cross-domain problems, and have a passion to identify root causes in complex scenarios. Most importantly you are a people leader and you are excited about the prospect of working in a fast-paced demanding environment and get that learning happens at the edge of the comfort zone.

How you can have an impact
As an engineering leader, you’ll have influence over the direction of the team and function, and a strategic impact on the overall business strategy. You’ll impact significantly on evolving engineering practices and culture to build a world-class engineering team. Improving others’ ability to deliver great work, suggesting and bringing innovations, and driving initiatives focused on release-safety, repeatability, and improving the way we do things. Experimenting with ways to become more efficient and productive, and bringing these learnings to the senior leadership team. We encourage involvement in the community, open source work, attending talks and events, and experimenting with new technologies.
