Site Reliability Engineer (SF)

San Francisco, CA
Full Time
  • Responsibilities

    Love live music? Want to be part of one of the few tech startups currently making a real impact on the music industry?

    At Lyte, we help fans get into their favorite events, with a ticketing experience that doesn't suck - no scalpers or fake tickets.

    Want to watch the software you build immediately get put to use at the highest levels of the music industry? If there is popular music event or festival that is sold out, we are most probably close partners, think the biggest names in the industry! To name a few, Coachella, Burning Man, ComicCon, Electric Forest, Newport Folk Festival, AfroPunk, and BottleRock. Don't see your favorite event or artist here yet? Help make it a reality.

    Want to join a team of hard working, fun loving people who are still a little weird and know how to both ship rock solid code and not take life too seriously? The Lyte engineering team is scrappy crew of technology professionals who have experience across the early stage startup realm.

    In addition to being technically savvy, we love music and events and when we are not pushing code, we are actively trying to have fun in life. Some of our team members are in bands, and some just like to play flute by themselves out in the mountains.

    We are seeking a SITE RELIABILITY ENGINEER who is:

    • Passionate about automation, infrastructure as code, immutable infrastructure, and CI/CD
    • Excited to craft tooling that enables other teams to quickly and reliably deliver software
    • Looking to do "work that matters."
    • An excellent debugger, problem solve, investigator
    • A believer that systems operation is a software problem


    • Scheduling and maintaining application's deployment and release CI/CD pipelines
    • Monitoring and maintaining the Development, Testing/QA, Staging and Production environments
    • Working closely with team members to improve existing systems with better performance and automation
    • Participating in on-call/on-demand network, server and database support
    • Measuring system performance and release quality, reducing the cost of failure by failing fast, and fixing fast.

    Required experience:

    • AWS
    • Docker
    • Python
    • SQL

    Preferred experience:

    • Kubernetes
    • DataDog
    • GitLab
    • PostgreSQL
    • Django


    • Competitive salary, meaningful equity, and great benefits (including flexible vacation policy).
    • Collaborate with a savvy and mature team of people who realize that work life balance requires rigor, discipline and internal organization.
    • Stipend for attending live entertainment events
    • 2nd and Howard St. office location, with easy access to major transit.
    • Office provided snacks, food, occasional lunches, coffee, and peer baked goods.
    • Occasional happy hours but not an office dominated by the party vibe.
    • Awesome opportunities to occasionally interact with all walks of life in the music industry.

    In keeping with our beliefs and goals to represent the diversity of live entertainment event fans, no employee or applicant will face discrimination/harassment based on: race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or veteran status. Above and beyond discrimination/harassment based on “protected categories,” Lyte also strives to prevent other, subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our office. Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place at Lyte.
