Datto is a creative company at its core and is an exciting and dynamic workplace. We're 100% focused on our managed service provider partners and believe that with the right technology, managed service providers can change how businesses around the world operate. Datto provides data protection, business continuity, networking, business management, and file backup and sync products that empower and protect the clients of our 14,000+ partners. We're headquartered in Norwalk, Connecticut and have 22 offices worldwide. We're looking for a motivated, self-starting, Sr. Site Reliability Engineer to help pioneer this role at Datto. The Sr. Site Reliability Engineer attaches to our Core Products Team, which maintains and develops new features for all of Datto's backup appliances (~75K devices and growing quickly). The backup device is a physical or virtual appliance that takes block-level backups of Windows, Mac, and Linux machines, turns them into raw disk images and stores them on a local ZFS-based disk array. In the case of a disaster, our customers restore these backups/disk-images instantly as KVM-based virtual machines, iSCSI targets, Samba shares, and many other formats. We also offer a virtual VMware/Hyper-V-based appliance and integrate with their hypervisors. We write code in modern Symfony-based PHP (with some Python and C++ sprinkled in), and we strongly rely on our Ubuntu-based Linux stack. We do amazing and exciting things every day, such as detecting when a VM has booted successfully, injecting drivers into the Windows registry before boot, and generating vmdk files on the fly. On top of that, we work with many low-level technologies, such as hypervisors and the ZFS filesystem. This is not your average PHP webdev gig!
