Key Tasks and Responsibilities
* Service 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.
* Ownership 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.
* Service 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.
o 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.
o 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.
o 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 development.
* Operations 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:
o Degradation and behavior under load of the services and their dependencies.
o End-to-end tuning needs, optimizing resource utilization, as load patterns fluctuate.
o Instrumentation and metrics that clearly describe the service behaviors.
o Scaling requirements and patterns.
o Resiliency and recoverability, ensuring that backup / restore and disaster recovery capabilities are implemented, tested and maintained.
* Technical 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 mitigations.
* Incident 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.
* Service Requirements - You will provide direction and prioritization to service Product Management and Service Development teams to engineer and add premier SRE capabilities to the Oracle SaaS/ERP services.
* SRE Testing Requirements - You will partner with Service Assurance and Test Engineering to ensure that monitoring, security, resiliency, scale, and performance are represented as a first class, testing priority in the overall testing strategy.
o You will ensure that the testing requirements include both positive and negative testing techniques for these SRE areas.
o You will ensure that testing requirements and the requirement backlog are curated on an ongoing basis using data driven methods that leverage fleet and customer feedback (eg. SRs, Bugs/ERs) and that these insights are translated into testing changes/investments.
* Evangelize and Educate - You will play a critical role in making the transformational culture change to an SRE mindset within Service Development. You will be responsible for evangelizing and educating Service Product Management and Service Development on the service centric, full stack approach and principles of SRE as well as the architectures and solutions used for Oracle SaaS/ERP services.
