Site Reliability Engineer - SRE (Deliveroo)

Permanent  |  £ Flexible  |    |  London (remote)


Deliveroo are working exclusively with LinuxRecruit to scale their Production Engineering team.

We have an opportunity for SREs to build Reliability within the Production Engineering team, which sits at the heart of Deliveroo.

You'll have a Software Engineering mindset, and a passion for solving complex reliability issues with your coding ability in Go, Ruby or Scala. You'll understand AWS, build infra-as-code using Terraform, enjoy working with Containers and understand complex CI/CD.

Deliveroo is striving to build London’s best engineering organisation.

Delivering hot and tasty food, millions of times per day, is an important task. Now more than ever, being able to deliver convenience to people who need it, along with trying to keep the restaurant and hospitality industries going is increasingly important.


Their teams are solving unique and difficult problems at scale in an energetic and hyper-growth environment. Deliveroo is growing incredibly quickly, and needs experienced Engineers to help the Production Engineering team to innovate and scale. At peak times, when millions are logging on, the challenge is there to keep things running. Making huge use of autoscaling technology and making sure at 8pm on a Saturday night when millions are relying on Deliveroo, it works as efficiently as physically possible.

This is an opportunity to work for a company with very unique engineering challenges and an advanced and sophisticated technology stack. At peak times, we're talking thousands of transactions a second. You'll solve complex challenges using your coding ability with Ruby and Go. You'll build complex environments using your ability with Terraform. You'll understand deep AWS services and be able to build and manage cloud environments.

You'll have exposure across five core areas: Security, Reliability, Developer effectiveness and Cost Optimization / Performance. The internal culture provides opportunity to have a voice in the direction of reliability and platform engineering. We need someone who isn't a shrinking violet and can get involved in high level conversations around Architecture and Design. You'll see a problem and get excited about working to a resolution.

We're not looking for brilliant jerks, we need humble engineers who want to solve complex challenges alongside some of the country's finest Platform Engineers. You'll have experience working within a highly scalable environment and the idea of doing so again will get you excited.

Mindset is more important than tooling, but the kind of tooling that will excite you is Golang/Ruby/Scala, Docker, CI/CD, AWS, Terraform, Kubernetes, DataDog. Understanding operability, reliability and how to monitor and track that is important.

Deliveroo know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth, time away and relocation.

We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of scaling up one of the most exciting companies in tech.
