At Ping Identity, we're changing the way people think about enterprise security technology. With our innovative Identity Defined Security platform, we're helping to build a borderless world where people have total freedom to work wherever and however they want. Without friction. Without fear.

We're headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and we have offices and employees around the globe. And we serve the largest, most demanding enterprises worldwide, including over half of the Fortune 100. Because even in the most complex enterprise environments, security shouldn't be a source of anxiety. It should be one of your greatest competitive advantages.

We call this digital freedom. And it's not just something we provide our customers. It's something that drives our company. People don't come here to join a culture that's build on digital freedom. They come to cultivate it.

As a Ping Identity SRE, you will be involved in every facet of our On-Demand SaaS services.  From conceptual design of interconnected sub-systems to network design, platform testing and analysis, security policy, service troubleshooting, and application performance, Ping SREs own responsibility for application performance, monitoring, and adherence to SLAs.  Everything needs to just work, all the time... and you’re the one who’s responsible.  If things need to get fixed in the middle of the night, you’re the one to get it done. 

Working within the Infrastructure Operations team, you’ll be expected to wear many hats.  From first responder to performance analysis, system architect, capacity planning, and systems support. We follow a DevOps model:  Our teams are integrated and running continuous deployments daily.  SREs are expected to provide input wherever possible in the product’s development, deployment, design, and operations.
