A Technical Lead in Soroco's Infrastructure & Security team reports directly to Soroco's Head of Infrastructure and Security and is responsible for architecting and engineering some of Soroco's more advanced and large-scale infrastructure systems. As part of these responsibilities, the Technical Lead will lead a team of engineers across some of Soroco's clients to deliver highly reliable systems. The Technical Lead will also periodically engage directly with the client to understand requirements and educate the client on Soroco's infrastructure and security practices. The types of systems the Technical Lead would be responsible for would contain a balance of DevOps, distributed systems, data science, and machine learning (or statistical techniques). The goal is to monitor and analyze large data sets, apply learning techniques to them, and then to automate IT operations based on the learnings at scale. ML experience is not required (Soroco will help train). Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
- Applying statistical techniques on large data sets to learn system behavior
- Build techniques to operate at scale (e.g., on 60,000 new data points a second)

- Leveraging and advancing DevOps tooling to automate various IT operations
- Influencing and creating designs, architectures, standards, and methods to make distributed systems more reliable
