      • Design, build, manage, and support core AWS infrastructure that enables scaling Glorify to hundreds of thousands of concurrent users
      • Champion best practices for managing infrastructure at scale such as IaC and CaC.
      • Improve operational processes (deployments, releases, upgrades) through tooling and automation (CI/CD) to help maximize development productivity and minimize overhead for developers
      • Design and implement observability and alerting tooling to measure and improve the reliability, latency, availability, and scalability of Glorify's systems
      • Champion high availability for critical systems and systematically root out single points of failure
      • Improve team practices through code reviews and technical design sessions
      • Help define and monitor SLAs and SLOs
      • With the CTO, manage the on-call rotation and incident response processes. Lead incident response for production incidents
