We are looking for a Site Reliability Engineer to join our SRE Traffic team in supporting and developing the platform that serves the world’s favorite encyclopedia to millions of people around the globe. Wikipedia and its sister projects are powered by Free and Open Source software and infrastructure. The SRE Traffic team’s primary responsibility is the development and operation of a private and privacy-protecting global CDN for Wikipedia and related sister projects.
Our Traffic stack handles public DNS, global request routing, TLS termination, HTTP content caching, and internal service routing for the public services the Foundation operates. It acts as the edge layer between the wild public Internet and all of our internal software and infrastructure, handling ~12 billion encrypted HTTP requests per day, or ~140,000 per second on average, from edge server sites in California, Texas, and Virginia in the US, and the Netherlands and Singapore abroad. We currently employ Varnish and Apache Traffic Server for the most complex HTTP caching, manipulation, and request-routing parts of our stack.
We are a globally distributed and diverse team of engineers with a drive to explore, experiment and embrace new technologies. If you find what we do interesting, if you are up to the challenge of improving the reliability and delivery of one of the Internet’s top 10 websites, and you enjoy the idea of working in a remote-first role, we may just be the right place for you.
