The CircleCI SRE team is responsible for the effective operation of our platform at scale. This team provides all of the shared services and infrastructure required by CircleCI's software, from deployment and orchestration to monitoring and logging. The SRE team also aims to provide a consistent environment in which this software can run regardless of whether it is operating in CircleCI's multi-cloud SaaS environment or in the datacenter of one of our enterprise customers. The SRE team meets these objectives by delivering automation and tooling to ensure that processes are scalable and reliable.
The CircleCI SRE team is globally distributed and remote-friendly. We take advantage of multiple timezones to manage a platform for our global customer base.
Velocity is critical for software teams in today's competitive landscape, but maintaining speed can be difficult as apps and systems grow larger and more complex. CircleCI’s platform allows developers to rapidly release code (for web and mobile apps) they trust by automating the build, test, and deploy process. CircleCI enables developers to detect and fix bugs before they even reach customers. Thousands of leading companies including Facebook, Kickstarter, Shyp and Spotify rely on CircleCI to accelerate delivery of their code and enable developers to focus on creating business value fast.
