Job Description

Systems Engineer III

This is an estimated 3 month temporary position, in Seattle, WA and is offered through Volt Workforce Solutions. We are among the largest staffing companies in the US for contingent/temporary and direct hire placements, and support many of the top rated Pacific Northwest companies.

Site Reliability Engineers can have near unlimited scope across availability, durability, maintainability, operability, scalability, etc. We are looking for independent engineers who can help us identity and prioritize projects. 

The ideal candidate will be technically strong and get a lot done – you’ve directly worked on services that are highly available, scalable, and redundant. Automation is a core tenet for everything you do. You understand that simple systems are easier to operate and troubleshoot. You can balance speed with iteration and incremental improvements. You’ve made life easier for other developers and have motivated your teams to make both process and service improvements. Candidates should have broad working knowledge across multiple domains, but we love to see specialization as well.


The basics: Networking, Linux Systems Engineering, Software Engineering/Automation, and Distributed Systems. This role requires 50%+ coding and configuration management.

  • 3+ years production engineering experience (distributed services or cloud platform experience)
  • Strong programming experience in at least one high-level language (C++, Java, etc.)
  • Proven experience with automation and strong experience in a scripting language (Bash, Perl, Python, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of Software Engineering and Computer Science principles
  • Solid foundation in Linux administration and troubleshooting
  • Solid understanding of Networking, Security and Storage
  • Experience with Docker
  • Be able to understand and formulate meaningful KPIs and business metrics
