The Performance Engineering Practice within Accenture Technology is focused on optimizing the performance and scalability of enterprise applications through the combination of:
Testing: Analyzing, planning and executing production-like simulations across mobile and web solutions to identify & remediate performance problems, prevent production outages, and guarantee predictable performance.
Diagnostics & Monitoring: Instrumenting the complete application architecture to provide real user and system performance data to provide insight into the root cause of all application bottlenecks, enable real time visibility to reduce risk exposure.
Performance Analytics: Measuring the relationship between end-to-end performance, user behavior, and business goals to maximize the digital business, improve business KPIs, and increase client retention.
Business Optimization: Empowering digital businesses with contextual intelligence to visualize, quantify and maximize the business value of performance to improve the quality & performance of the business, increase customer satisfaction, and protect brand reputation.
As a Site Reliability Engineer, some of your key responsibilities may include:
Maintain responsibility for the design, deployment, and maintenance of production-scale systems.
Support services before they go live through activities such as system design consulting, developing software platforms and frameworks, capacity planning and launch reviews.
Use automation to streamline the provisioning, management, and monitoring of applications and services using multiple scripting languages, Java, and infrastructure-as-code.
Facilitate blameless Incident Retrospectives to understand root causes, communicate learnings, determine remediation and make us better and closer as a team.
Coordinate with development and platform teams to design and implement zero-downtime deployment approaches, real-time logging, alerting, and monitoring solutions, and code instrumentation.
Introduce chaos engineering concepts that promote experimentation in production to identify systemic weaknesses while increasing service resiliency
Coordinate with the solution architect to design a highly available solution that meets availability and reliability objectives and to reduce manual activities using automation, when feasible.
Identifying, evaluating, and recommending monitoring tools and diagnostic techniques relevant to the application architecture. Assess gaps in as-is monitoring tool capabilities and recommend tools to augment or replace.
Instrumenting applications to enable performance diagnostics and monitoring
Collaborating with developers to promote the concept of reliability engineering during all phases of the SDLC to detect and correct performance issues earlier in the lifecycle
Monitoring application performance during performance tests or production usage through the use of APM and other monitoring tools to isolate the fault domain, dive deep into application code, and identify root cause of performance issues.
Interacting with client and/or Accenture development, operations, and infrastructure resources to recommend solutions to remediate performance issues
Participating in re-architecture, redesign, and refactoring decisions to satisfy performance requirements
Developing dashboards and reports to provide ongoing visibility into the performance of client applications
Contributing learnings and experiences to the Accenture Performance Engineering community
