About the role

Site Reliability Engineer GLOBAL (OVERLAP 4 HOURS WITH US PACIFIC TIME) /ENGINEERING – SRE /FULL-TIME APPLY FOR THIS JOB Computers are the most powerful tools to exist in the history of humanity. Sadly, most people are mere consumers of these machines. Only a relative few—the professional software developers—can use this superpower to its fullest extent. As a result, it's creating an unbalanced world where there are those who program and those who consume programs.

Replit wants to change that dynamic by bringing the next billion software creators online.

Millions of people come to Replit to learn how to code, prototype ideas and build applications. When we go down, it's not a mere annoyance; it's whether thousands of students learn to code that day and whether a developer's apps are up. As part of the SRE team, not only will you have a real tangible effect on people's lives, you get to influence our engineering culture and how we build and scale services.

Ready to build the world's largest developer platform?

Why you should join Replit

We're building a first of its kind developer platform that can be used to learn and practice programming, build and deploy applications, and share and discuss with a community of peers. We realize this is an ambitious plan, but we think it's high time someone built this. There is no good reason for the insane fragmentation in programming tools today -- someone learning to code needs to learn at least ten disjointed tools and platforms to do anything interesting with programming.
