Site Reliability Engineer - Career


** Do you want to work with the best people, using the best tools, working on the best projects, for the best customers?  **

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a discipline that combines software and systems engineering for building and running large-scale, distributed, fault-tolerant systems. SRE ensures that internal and external services meet or exceed reliability and performance expectations while adhering to Equifax engineering principles.

SRE is also an engineering approach to building and running production systems – we engineer solutions to operational problems. As SREs are responsible for overall system operation, we use a breadth of tools and approaches to solve a broad set of problems. Practices such as limiting time spent on operational work, blameless postmortems, proactive identification, and prevention of potential outages.

Our SRE culture of diversity, intellectual curiosity, problem solving and openness is key to its success.  Equifax brings together people with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.  We encourage them to collaborate, think big, and take risks in a blame-free environment.  We promote self-direction to work on meaningful projects, while we also strive to build an environment that provides the support and mentorship needed to learn, grow and take pride in our work.
