DevOps/Site Reliability Engineer

Client: Humana
Location: San Deigo or Campbell, CA
Duration: C2H
Rate: TBD
Visa: USC, GC, TN, H1-b willing to transfer (more than 2 years left) 

Notes:  should have 4+ years in Build/DevOps/Site Reliability Engineering and 7+ years of industry experience

Looks like a hybrid between DevOps and QA—DevOps engineer that has some QA experience, ideally with some scripting/development capabilities. From the hiring manager:

We understand Site Reliability Engineer as a “subset” of DevOp, with a focus on coordinating software application testing, quality assurance, configuration, installation and supporting to ensure smooth, stable and timely implementation of new software and updates to installed applications. In that view, candidates with DevOp background could fit the position if they meet the requirements outlined in our role qualifications (see the document that Dean sent last week). I should add that we expect SRE to work closely with the software development team, thus strong scripting and coding capabilities are highly desirable

Summary of Duties:
Transcend Insights is looking for a Site Reliability Engineer (Contract-To-Hire) to work with the software engineering teams to ensure that compilation, assembly, and delivery of our source code is executed with precision.
