What does a Site Reliability Engineer Intern do?

Site reliability engineers (SREs) incorporate software engineering aspects and apply them to infrastructure and operations problems. They apply software engineering principles to systems administration and serve as bridges between a company’s development and operations. They perform functions and on-call duties and develop the systems and software that bolster site reliability and performance. They build self-service tools for user groups that provide automation and rely on their services, including automatic test result provisioning and statistical visualizations.

SREs strive to create services that reduce the amount of work in progress for all parties, allowing developers to focus on feature development. They collaborate with product developers to ensure designed solutions respond to non-functional requirements including security and maintainability and work with release engineers to confirm that software delivery pipelines are as efficient as possible. SREs need a bachelor’s degree in computer science or related fields.
