Looking for our

Site Reliability Engineering


You'll join the Core Squad and support the ongoing work here, to make developers life easier, and support our users growth. The mission is to support developer toolchain, testing environments, release scripts, infrastructure configuration and monitoring for live features.

Some of our challenges:

  • Developers to have an outstanding platform to develop, close to production, and as simple as running a local Webpack. (We use Kubernetes and Garden.io)
  • Reduce our CI time to be able to merge and release features and fixes faster (at 20 minutes today, should be under 10 minutes).
  • We have our services and release process defined as code. But our platform is still configured via the Google interface. We want to automate and clarify its definition.

Hey there,

Pierre Renaudin
,
CTO

We're today a team of 16 engineers, and our tooling has been developed by a few of them, and sometimes with the help of consultancy agency. We've always invested in having a high quality toolchain. We are running on Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, JavaScript for everything from our API services, React for our front-end and React Native for our mobile apps.

We like simple but performant tools. For instance, by just running yarn release-branch, we are able to test you ongoing code in a production environment. It gives great confidence at iterating faster on features, help with QA on real data, and also we can experiment new things faster.

But we're at a stage where our services grew, and maintaining the development pipeline is a job in itself. Also, no-one in our team has background in DevOps or Site Reliability.


You'll be part of the Core Squad at Slite. It's a 6 engineers team, with a technical engineering manager to support and challenge you.

  • Charley - Engineering Manager: Previously lead our editor at Slite.
  • Florian - Security engineer: He's organising a security conference, and he is splitting his time between developing back-end features and being responsible for the security at Slite.
  • Alexandre - Back-end Engineer: He joined Slite as the third engineer and supported our back-end since then.
  • Antoine - Back-end Engineer: He transitioned our real-time synchronisation system for docs to support complex blocks like sketches, tables, etc...
  • Jason - Lead Editor Engineer: He works on pushing Slite editing experience and features to the top
  • Eric - Editor Engineer: He's the one that made Slite Editor on mobile a way more pleasant experience

We're organised as small squad of ~5 engineers, working in cycles: One week to stop coding and reflect on a solid plan. Three weeks to actually execute the plan.

Is this you?

Here are some of the key things we are looking for.

✅  Previous experience as a

Site Reliability Engineer or DevOps

✅  Previous knowledge around JavaScript

We develop on JavaScript for everything from our API services, React for our front-end and React Native for our mobile apps

✅  Handled a site with heavy traffic already

We want to benchmark our platform with 3x active users. We have currently 10 000 users using our platform simultaneously, but with our growth, this number increases every month. What actions we'll need to take in the year to come to support this?

✅  Go for simple solutions first

and propose complex ones as the needs evolve

✅  Curious mindset

and can drive topics on their own

Site Reliability Engineering

We work thoughtfully

We put a lot of care into how we work, and build Slite to enable:

Written culture

Writing long form allows us to drive thoughtful discussions around key topics. Documenting our work helps us reduce meetings and create our team's collective memory.

Transparency

Our work is shared and open by default in Slite. It makes each of us more autonomous, and removes frictions that come with remote collaboration.

Async work, with real interactions

Working async provides us with more flexibility, and makes everyone owner of their time and work.

Still, we are humans at work. We believe in real life interactions, 1:1 video calls, ideation meetings are all crucial to building trusting, long lasting relationships.

Remote work

We started Slite remotely in 2017 and never looked back.

It works thanks to our strong written culture and our regular cadence of in-person meetings, about every two to four months.

Benefits of working at Slite

🙌
Great remote habits
Started in remote, selling to remote teams, we strive to be an example of great remote habits. You won't find endless stand-up and hours long meetings here. We work async and socialize in sync.
🖇
Your work set up is covered
Working from home, we take care of your chair, monitor, desk and other appliances. More of a co-working person? Pick yours! Want both? No problem.
🇫🇷
French holidays, across the world
Both founders of Slite are French, we know the positive impact of good holidays. We extended the habit for employees across the world: 25 days off, plus your local bank holidays.
🎈
We see each other 3+ times a year
Some see remote as a cold way of working. Not us. We foster strong human relationships through weekly rituals and gathering at least three times a year. Offslites allow everyone to gain ownership on what's next and build stronger human connection.
🍩
Compensation
Like any startup we'll say we offer competitive compensations. This is how we do it: we built our salary model based on location, to always be in the top 25% offers of the local tech market. Our employees should feel at ease and rewarded.
🍼
Got kids?
So does 30% of the team. We're used to it. Remote gives parents work flexibly, so they can combine great family life with ambitious work.
📚
Buy any book
Are you the type of person who's always learning? We'll give you a card to expense all the books you need. Enjoy!
