Learn more about why site reliability engineers are one of the most in demand roles in the industry.
One of the fastest growing technology roles today is Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). According to LinkedIn, SRE experts are currently ranked #21 on the list of the fastest growing U.S. jobs. This demand reflects the increasing need of organizations for highly qualified individuals who can help them accelerate their development cycles, while also improving their site reliability and security. In this article, I want to explore the role of SRE and the reasons it has become so important.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) is a set of practices to ensure systems reliability and maintainability. An SRE team defines best practices, automation, and metrics to find creative solutions – for example, when sites slow to the point of user frustration. The team aims to find the balance between reliability and feature velocity.
It’s a discipline that incorporates aspects of software development and applies them to problems and tasks in infrastructure and operations.
Some examples of the responsibilities that an SRE team will be tasked with include:
SRE teams are in charge of many different tasks. To understand more about the role, we decided to sit down with some of the engineers in Qubika’s SRE, Cloud & Cybersecurity Studio. The studio works with our clients, helping them to improve the productivity of their own development teams, while also maximizing the reliability of large-scale systems.
Currently they are working with several of our clients to:
We understand the importance of our SRE Studio here at Qubika. That’s why we’re incorporating the SRE team into more and more of our projects. We believe this is an essential part of our process because it gives our team the ability to define aspects of the infrastructure and operations that the solution will have from day one. It means that every organization we work with can benefit from their deep expertise, while the ability to create assets and reuse work means we can also drive greater efficiency within Qubika.
