Site Reliability Engineer

Exabel was founded in Oslo in 2016 based on the belief that the financial system will best serve society with fair, open and efficient markets. Exabel delivers an analytics platform for any investment professional who wants to benefit from alternative data and modern data science tools in their investment process. It fulfils a growing need in financial markets: while use of data – including fundamental, market, proprietary and alternative data – is critical for investment managers, modeling such data in house has become an excessive use of time and resources for all but the very largest investment firms.

This is a position to expand the platform team within Engineering at Exabel. The platform team is responsible for our cloud infrastructure in Google Cloud Projects, and also develops APIs and micro services that are consumed by other services, our own front-end applications, and by our partners and customers. We run most of our services in an Istio service mesh managed by Google Kubernetes Engine, and APIs are developed using gRPC. Scalability and high quality is key to everything in the Exabel platform, as well as short turnaround using CI/CD.


The Engineering team is a DevOps team using agile methodologies. Be prepared for your part on support duty as well, since we all share that responsibility.


Site Reliability Engineer Job Responsibilities:

  • Help design and implement our architecture for scalability and reliability
  • Work on our CI/CD pipeline
  • Work on our monitoring and alerting tools
  • Scaling our cloud deployments
  • Handling incidents (when on support duty)


Site Reliability Engineer Qualifications / Skills:

  • Experience with SRE in GCP for SaaS solutions.
  • Experience with API (REST/gRPC) and software development (Java/Python)
  • Self-driven
  • Good communication skills, written and verbal


Education and Experience Requirements:

Master’s or bachelor's degree in computer science or related field

5-plus years of relevant experience
