Antwerp (Belgium) - Starting Now

Site Reliability Engineer

Klarrio is working daily on very cool and challenging data projects.

When these projects are put into production and are running mission-critical workloads, someone needs to monitor and safeguard the platform. A combination of problem-solving and platform expertise is required. Technology evolutions are allowing us to predictively act before damage is done. A Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) at Klarrio has the right mix of development, support, and problem-solving skills. Klarrio operates with a follow-the-sun principle by having SRE’s in multiple continents, avoiding the need to do shifts. In a day and age where minutes of downtime can result in millions of financial losses. Klarrio’s SRE’s make sure platforms operate the way they should and downtime is always minimized.

We at Klarrio, are looking for engineers to take a crucial role in creating, maintaining, and supporting reliable production platforms.
