Job Description
Location: Sao Paulo or Work from home (Brazil)

Line Manager: Senior Engineering Manager - Site Reliability Engineering

Contract Terms: Permanent, 40 hours per week


The Ticketmaster SRE team builds and runs large, complicated, resilient, and reliable distributed systems that operate at huge scale. Our focus is around continual improvement of systems - ensuring our capacity / saturation is optimal, and looking for opportunities to improve performance, simplify infrastructure and architecture, eliminate work that doesn't directly add value, through automation, and provide information and actionable insights to help understand our systems when they inevitably misbehave. You will be part of the Marketplace SRE team, which is responsible for the stability of our systems, the team is fully working with the engineer teams to deploy all requirements and keep the systems safe. The role is remote, but there is the option to work in any Ticketmaster office, and the team convene to work together throughout the year.


You will be working with various development teams across US and EU time zones, most of whom have services deployed in Kubernetes, either on-prem (Rancher) or in AWS (EKS), so we would expect you to have experience of K8s or similar container orchestration platforms.

We have many complex and highly distributed systems, spanning decades of history, so we would expect you to be comfortable working in a complex, multi-technology platform. Our business model demands that we sustain exceptional high traffic at specific times, so staying calm and being able to troubleshoot under high pressure is essential.
Our team works closely with engineers developing a wide range of fan-facing services, and we would expect you to integrate quickly with these teams and with your own team members, mindful of the challenges posed by different time zones and first languages (less than a third of our team speak English as a first language). Networking with engineers across the organisation is an important part of what we do, so we would expect you to build connections with senior engineers across Ticketmaster. We believe that monitoring, alerting, and observability are foundational to reliability, so we would want you to be contributing to continuous improvement of measuring and alerting on both potential causes and symptoms, as we define service level indicators and objectives, and strive to meet them.
