Security: TS//SCI clearance with polygraph is REQUIRED
Seeking a Senior Site Reliability Engineer that has both development and system administration experience with large systems who can use their experience to formulate and implement automation solutions to support our monitoring and system administration people in tasks that either are risky to the system, prone to mistakes, labor intensive, time consuming and repetitive. These can be tasks for which an SOP exists or could be developed but is likely not to be followed consistently. The idea is to create some sustainable tools as a force multiplier that don't function more poorly than the manual methods. Experience with the pros and cons of tools like SALT and PUPPET will be useful for some tasks but not for other tasks where we might build a GUI for the shift to perform tasks on the clusters (or to automate those tasks entirely) which will require development skills.
