At Klaviyo, we value the unique backgrounds, experiences and perspectives each Klaviyo (we call ourselves Klaviyos) brings to our workplace each and every day. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot at success and appreciate the experiences each person brings beyond the traditional job requirements. If you’re a close but not exact match with the description, we hope you’ll still consider applying.

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is what you get when you treat system operations as a software engineering problem. The mission of the Site Reliability Engineering group is to provide services, tooling, and guidance to Klaviyo’s product engineers to make them more productive and ensure their services are sufficiently reliable, scalable, and secure.
The Velocity team makes it really easy for engineers at Klaviyo to develop applications, regardless of size, as well as safely deploy to production, such that there is one way of deploying our custom application code at Klaviyo. This deployment model enables hundreds of small pushes a day. Additionally, automation and standards exist for every step of developer life such that product engineers can self-service their containerized, cloud-based local environments as well as answer their development questions.
