Job Description


Our industry is starting to go through a transformational shift and we intend to lead it. As the talent becomes the main differentiator between failure and success organizations must attract, engage and develop their people more than ever. To do so, they need powerful and sophisticated tools, which take the pain out of HR management and empower employees & people leaders.

The concept and vision behind our strategy is "Innovate like a Startup" with the goal of delivering highly automated, intelligent and predictive solutions to the market. Our goal is to have specialized teams of high-performers to keep pace with market trends and emerging technologies. Our team will generate solutions that dramatically increase the value of our client offerings.

A System Reliability Engineer (SRE) is responsible for availability, performance, and capacity of large-scale distributed systems. This role combines Software and Systems Engineering to develop creative solutions to solve challenges in a more efficient, reliable, and automated way. The mindset of an ADP SRE is that of curiosity, problem solving, and has a passion for improving quality. SRE's automate manual processes, are proactive with identifying future problems, and ensure existing solutions operate to specification.

As a Senior System Reliability Engineer, you have come up through the ranks as a full-stack engineer and are passionate about automation. You are very opinionated about patterns and practices but pragmatic in your discourse and implementation. You have experience building fully automated, highly elastic, cloud-orchestrated platforms over various IaaS providers like AWS or using on-premise solutions like ICP (IBM Cloud Private). You are driven to constantly make things better. You see containers as the future of CICD and are familiar with how to orchestrate them with frameworks like Docker and Kubernetes. There is a fine line between configuration management and immutable infrastructure and you know how to walk it. You have a strong grasp of the concept of Infrastructure as Code and believe strongly in it. You believe that programmatic deployment of infrastructure and application is as important as the nature of the application itself. Quality, performance, stability, and reusability are all equally critical for both. You understand that the right data is the key to building great solutions. Does this sound like you?

We believe people make great companies, not the other way around. Our people make all the difference in delivering innovative HR technologies and solutions that help employees all over the world do their jobs better. The result? We're building the next generation of ADP technologies.
