Senior Site Reliability Engineer - SRE

  • Oslo
  • Oslo

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) in Schibsted encompasses a wide range of shared services devoted to making scalable, reliable, and trustworthy products and services for the wider company. To do this, SRE builds and maintains internal platforms, and also contracts and provides internal support for centralised 3rd party services.

At SRE in Schibsted, we pride ourselves on enabling teams to gather data, visualise and analyse the information, and make data driven decisions. We support the pillars of modern observability: Metrics, Logging, and Distributed Tracing; as well as incident management - supporting teams throughout Schibsted when things go wrong.

We are looking for an engineer to join the existing SRE team in Oslo, where you will work with other full-stack engineers who design, build and support systems and services that underpin the production platforms of internal customers.

Note that we support production systems and services to high SLOs (Service Level Objectives) and as such, there is an on-call component to this role. However, part of our commitment to reliable, scaleable, services is that the number of pages received by on call engineers is minimised.


You will be based in the FINN offices in Oslo, and although the work will be international, we have excellent support for remote working, video conferencing, etc. As such, there is no requirement for travel.

However, we do have international offices, and if you feel travel to Stockholm or other tech hubs might expedite project delivery, that option may be available to you, at your discretion.


  • Work with an established and motivated SRE team, delivering shared services to internal technical customers throughout the Schibsted companies
  • Review designs, and participate in meaningful collaboration sessions on solving customer problems and participate in determining scope for new projects
  • Own components of architecture, and direct the work of junior team members
  • Automate that which can be automated
  • Mentor other team members in SRE philosophy, and assist in sharing SRE philosophy throughout the organisation where it gives benefit to development and operational teams
  • Code, test, debug, document and maintain shared software applications using established coding standards and methodologies
  • Perform code reviews for internally developed systems, and contribute to a high performing, growing team.
  • We use and contribute to Open Source Software, and encourage SREs to contribute improvements back to the OSS community where possible
  • Troubleshoot, debug, and resolve product issues as they arise, both internally within the team, and with customer teams who rely on SRE for observability, tracing and logging for their products and services
  • Work cross functionally to resolve complex customer problems
  • Contribute to the strategy and future plans of SRE within Schibsted
  • Report to the SRE manager on project progress
