Intern, SRE

San Francisco, CA

This is a software engineering internship on a cross-functional software reliability team comprised of software engineers and operations specialists.

What you will be doing

As an engineering intern on this team, you will:

  • Work on tools and systems that help engineers move quickly and safely while being more productive and confident in their software.
  • Be responsible for the full lifecycle of your code, from design to delivery and deployment.
  • Collaborate with other engineers in a team environment.

The systems and tools you will work on define the way engineers work and collaborate at Formation. Your work will have serious impact on our engineering organisation.

What we’re looking for

You may have an interest in (not necessarily experience with) some of the following:

  • Functional programming
  • Immutable infrastructure
  • Developer-focused tooling
  • Continuous deployment
  • Building reliable and robust systems

Most of our projects use the Haskell programming language and the git version control system. While the role will provide ample production Haskell experience, basic familiarity and a desire to work with these tools will be a significant benefit.
