**Role Summary**

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a set of practices that take a software engineering approach to solving IT Operations problems. At Pfizer, we seek to apply an SRE approach to managing infrastructure operations, with a focus on:

+ Ensuring services are running smoothly, regularly reviewing operational health indicators to ensure delivery to defined service levels.

+ Analysing service data to identify improvement opportunities. Opportunities are assessed on their potential to remove manual effort ('toil'), improve service reliability and enhance customer experience.

+ Developing automation that will remove toil from the environment and deliver a more reliable, cost effective service to the company.

As Lead SRE you will typically spend up to 50% of your time on operations work, ensuring the daily health and performance of Data Storage and Backup services. The balance of your time will be spent on service improvement activities like automating routine tasks and improving monitoring systems.

**Role Responsibilities**

A shared development team will be available to work with the Lead SRE on automation development. The Lead SRE will ensure that any code is developed to agreed standards, aligned with other service areas, and released in a compliant manner.

+ Constantly evaluate cost of service delivery for service in question. As toil is removed, develop and implement recommendations for cost improvement through improved staffing models.

+ Assume a leadership role on major outages or planned events that impact the service. Work closely with Pfizer's Command Center to ensure processes are optimised for management of major events including proactive monitoring, escalation plans and troubleshooting guides.

+ Lead post-mortems for major events pertaining to the service. Coordinate reliability testing on services in scope.

+ Proven ability to build and improve processes and workflows. Sharp focus on removing toil (manual effort) through process re-design and automation.

+ Exposure to agile ways of working or demonstrated aptitudes that mean they would be effective in such a paradigm. These include a bias toward action and the discipline to do the day-to-day with excellence (examples: facilitate stand-ups, review health indicators, maintain backlog).

+ Understanding of software development concepts and standards a distinct advantage, or a proven ability to rapidly learn such concepts.

+ Able to communicate in a succinct, accurate and timely fashion. Ability to effectively communicate technical concepts to business recipients.
