In Cookpad, Site Reliability Engineers are a hybrid between system engineers and software engineers who are responsible for and who take ownership of reliability, automation, and scalability. We focus on the systems and tools that enable our engineers to operate and scale the largest recipe sharing community in the world.

As a SRE, I build high performance and scalable systems with AWS and software. I work closely with engineers to advocate sensible, scalable, systems design and share responsibility with them in diagnosing, resolving, and preventing production issues. In the case of incidents, I triage, mitigate and solve them with product team engineers.
