About the Role

Enterprises of all sizes trust Abnormal Security’s cloud products to stop cybercrime. These products must scale with the growth of our customers, and ensure reliability and availability by being resilient. In FY25, Abnormal Security has an ambitious goal to establish their product offerings to heavily restricted environments. This is where a SRE comes in, helping us build tools and processes for releasing software and making sure they are running at scale.

Come empower the rest of engineering to stop cybercrime as we expand our offerings across both clouds and regions.

There are a lot of opportunities for growth and career advancement – it’s up to you to own your career here. Some potential career paths for this role include:

  • Positioning yourself to be a founding member of a team that will have an outsized impact on the rest of the company.
  • Growing into a Senior SRE role.
  • Taking things from 0 to 1 and helping them scale.

What you will do

  • Build tools for releasing the company’s cybersecurity product suite in a restricted environment (AWS GovCloud).
  • Embed with a small team of infrastructure and product engineers and execute the process of change and release management in a regulated environment.
  • Build observability pipelines and integrations, define and monitor SLAs/SLOs for critical systems, actively tracking deviations and triggering alerts when necessary.

Must Haves

  • Bachelor’s in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent professional experience
  • 1+ experience as a Site Reliability Engineer, responsible for the reliability of shared services.
  • Experience with container orchestration, preferably Kubernetes and Helm.
  • Experience developing Infrastructure as Code (IaC) modules and building automation, preferably Terraform.
  • Experience with a public cloud provider (AWS, Azure, GCP), observability stack (Prometheus, Grafana), and incident management tools (PagerDuty, Sentry, Slack integration).

Nice to Have

  • Experience working in environments which are designed to meet Federal compliance framework requirements such as FedRAMP and DoD SRG.
  • Experience building and managing infrastructure in AWS GovCloud.
