UST Description


UST is a leading provider of platforms, digital innovation, artificial Intelligence and end-to-end IT & Business services and solutions for Global 1000 companies. We are transforming corporations through deep domain expertise, knowledge-based ML platforms, as well as profound anthropological efforts to understand the end customer and design products and interactions that create delight. We are deeply committed to developing a comprehensive understanding of our clients' problems and to develop platforms to address them.



  • Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) combines software and systems engineering to build and run large-scale, massively distributed, fault-tolerant systems. SRE ensures that Customer's services-both internally critical and externally-visible systems-have reliability, uptime appropriate to user's needs and a fast rate of improvement. Additionally, SRE's will keep an ever-watchful eye on our systems capacity and performance. Much of the engineering focuses on optimizing existing systems, building infrastructure and eliminating work through automation.

  • On the SRE team, you'll have the opportunity to manage the complex challenges of scale which are unique, while using your expertise in coding, algorithms, complexity analysis and large-scale system design. SRE's culture of diversity, intellectual curiosity, problem solving, and openness is key to its success. Our organization brings together people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We encourage them to collaborate, think big and take risks in a blame-free environment. We promote self-direction to work on meaningful projects, while we also strive to create an environment that provides the support and mentorship needed to learn and grow.



DESCRIPTION OF DUTIES




  • Collaborate with software engineers in development, test, as well as CI infrastructure teams with the aim of improving the team's CI and CD services.

  • Partner with development teams by providing infrastructure assistance and guidance from the early phases of product development, including the development of software and processes to assist developers in infrastructure-related workflows (such as build, release and deployment automation).

  • Participates in project planning discussions to include the formulation and delivery of cost and labor estimates and options for assigned projects.

  • Designs and implements solutions to provide continuous integration, automated deployment, and configuration management of internally or externally developed applications.

  • Analyze new and existing products for performance and efficiency improvements, both as part of a structured release process, and as an ongoing process.

  • Monitor and tune the performance, reliability, and security of the infrastructure. Identify and correct bottlenecks in the system, while working with development teams on optimization and best practices.

  • Integrates internally developed products, externally developed products, and mixtures of both, to create working solutions from multiple disparate parts.
