As software development became faster and more complex, traditional software teams had trouble keeping up. To help with the transition of workflows from development to production applications, they introduced DevOps.
However, it became increasingly apparent that this system needed greater reliability and performance in order to stay competitive. This is where the field of site reliability engineering comes into play.
Site reliability engineering blends software engineering practices with information technology (IT) engineering practices to create highly reliable systems. Site reliability engineers are responsible for ensuring the reliability of all aspects of the full stack, from the front-end, customer-facing applications all the way through to the database and hardware infrastructure.
The role of SRE (Systems and Release Engineer) is ideal for assessing the newest development in the DevOps world, expanding your knowledge and skills in high-demand areas such as infrastructure automation, release engineering, and continuous delivery. As an SRE, you’ll be highly creative, stimulated, and technically challenged every day.
Site reliability engineers are crucial to most organizations. These professionals are in high demand at successful tech companies that have large data centers and complex technical challenges. They can also be inspirational from both a financial and workplace culture perspective. Google considers them scarce resources.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) refers to software engineering approaches used by organizations to manage their IT operations. SRE teams use software tools as a way to automate operations and solve problems in a timely manner.
Software reliability engineers (SREs) are software engineers who have Unix systems administration, networking, and software engineering experience. SREs also have polished programming skills because they regularly use automation to reduce human labor and increase reliability.
Software Release Engineering (SRE) transfers the tedious work traditionally done by DevOps and operations teams to software engineers who can use automation and software to optimize processes.
Site reliability engineers spend half their time doing development work, and the other half doing operations duties, such as responding to outages and incidents and being on call.
The roles and responsibilities of a site reliability engineer include
You can become a site reliability engineer in the following ways:
Along with technical skills you must have a strong foundation of non-technical skills as well. What you need:

Fundamental skills are important in helping you land high-paying site reliability engineer jobs. Here is what you need to know!
DevOps refers to a set of practices that promote better collaboration and widespread automation of the processes happening between operational and development teams. It can be extended to other business units as well.
DevOps is a new cultural movement combining software development, operations, and engineering. It stimulates the adoption of agile practices that are continuous in nature and enable continuous delivery of small batches to customers.
Python is easy to learn. It is a high-level, dynamic language with an interpreted structure to make debugging errors relatively painless. Which helps programmers rapidly develop working application prototypes. This feature has earned Python a reputation as a language well-suited for coding. Because Python supports cross-platform operating systems, it is a good choice for programmers. Especially those who do not want to spend time writing separate programs for different operating systems.
Go was created for applications relating to network infrastructure and was intended to replace Java and C++. It is used in cloud-based or server-side (web) applications. With DevOps, site reliability automation, micro-controller programming, robotics, and games also common users of Go. Go is also used in the world of artificial intelligence and data science.
Continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) is a software development process in which code is automatically built and tested as new code is added. CI/CD can improve the effectiveness of a software team by reducing the risk of errors or defects and enabling automated deployments, freeing up time spent manually building, testing, or releasing software.
CI/CD introduces automated processes to integrate code and test in a continuous manner with delivery and deployment, replacing error-prone manual processes. CI/CD is supported by teams working together in an agile way, either with DevOps or SRE practices.
Version control or revision control systems help software developers keep track of changes to application code and manage the development of a single program by more than one person. Version control systems such as Git have the ability to create branches, where a developer can make a copy of an existing project and modify one or more files.
NoSQL databases are a class of database management systems (DBMSs) that do not rely on the traditional relational database management system (RDBMS) structure. NoSQL databases are purpose-built for specific data models, have flexible schemas for building modern applications, and are widely recognized for their ease of development and performance at scale. These databases use various data models for accessing and managing data, which makes them optimized specifically for applications that require large data volume, low latency, and flexible data models.

Developers are a lot like athletes. In order to excel at their craft, they have to practice effectively and consistently. They also need to work hard enough so that their skills grow gradually over time. In that regard, there are two major factors that developers must focus on in order for that progress to happen: the support of someone who is more experienced and effective in practice techniques while you're practicing. As a developer, it's vital for you to know how much to practice - so make sure there is someone on hand who will help you out and keep an eye out for any signs of burnout!
