Fitbit-Boston is looking for Java developers who know Python, Hibernate, Spring, AspectJ, MySQL, Cassandra, ActiveMQ, Kafka

I just heard that my company, Fitbit Boston, is looking for a Site Reliability Engineer, so I wanted to pass that information along. We're over in a new office by the Moakley Courthouse, near the Barking Crab and South Station. Contact me for more information!



About The Team

Site Reliability Engineers are responsible for the pulse of the software ecosystem. They monitor the system, improve the system themselves, and suggest improvements for implementation by other engineers. The name of the game is automating your job, because hiring linearly with our traffic growth is unsustainable.  They are involved in incident management and change management. They are consultants for engineers when new products and services are brought online.
