In this post, I'll share my experiences as a new SRE, reflecting on the lessons I’ve learned and challenges I’ve faced in my first year. I hope to give you an insight into the role of an SRE, and perhaps even inspire others to consider a career in this field.
DeveloperBridge is a year-long, full-time, paid traineeship program where participants learn from and work with engineering teams at SoundCloud. The DeveloperBridge program was launched in 2017 with the goal of further supporting diversity and inclusion at SoundCloud and giving back to the tech community.
Back in 2016, the SoundCloud People Team collaborated with engineering management in an effort to bring more junior engineers into the company. The result was DeveloperBridge, a paid junior engineering program that ran for 12 months and was based out of our Berlin headquarters.
