As a Site Reliability Engineer in the Cloud Services Integrations team, you will build and operate cloud solutions for VMware services being offered across multiple public and private clouds.

Our team focuses on common service components across the stack.

We are a team of Site Reliability Engineers with a constant eye on improving automation, scale, reliability, security, and visibility of overall production health.

These teams will look to you for support and guidance on how to build and operate complex services. Our team is directly responsible for solutions around cloud management, security, reliability and visibility into cloud systems.

As the SaaS business runs on a 24 by 7 basis, the role requires rotational on-call availability (weekdays at work, evenings and weekend for service/system related incidents).
