As a Site Reliability Engineer working on the Livestream platform, your mission is to ensure that the Livestream platform and infrastructure is always fast, available, scalable and engineered to withstand the unpredictable demands of live streaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the year.
You will be solving the most unexpected problems of the platform, making intelligent decisions about where and how to send live video streams from producers to origins to streaming edges; in process, you will need to discover and work around the limitations of the most well known CDNs.
You will manage, automate, and make decisions that directly affect the platform; you will own inline and asynchronous services that enable functionality of Livestream.com.
You will be looked to as an expert and advocate to fellow engineers in making design and reliability decisions.
A successful candidate for this role will have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills, deep understanding of Linux kernel and IPv4 networking, fluency in coding, strong communication skills, insatiable intellectual curiosity, and a desire to tackle the complex problems related to real-time streaming.
