In his new role, Hidalgo will help spearhead internal Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) efforts for the company and also contribute to the development and launch of the Nobl9 software reliability platform.
Hidalgo is the author of “Implementing Service Level Objectives,” which was published in paperback by O’Reilly Media last week. He previously contributed to multiple chapters of Google’s well-known SRE textbook, “The Site Reliability Workbook,” also published by O’Reilly, and he has authored and presented extensively on SRE and SLOs.
Hidalgo was first introduced to the concept of SRE at Google where he worked alongside the engineers who pioneered the concept. Most recently, Hidalgo was a site reliability engineer at Squarespace, where he focused on sharing the concepts of SLO-based approaches to service reliability by speaking at conferences across the globe.
His presentations have addressed concepts such as sustainable operations, incident response management, and developing meaningful SLIs and SLOs.
Alex Nauda, chief technology officer for Nobl9, added: “As our principal SRE, Alex will play an instrumental role in building reliable infrastructure and guiding our own corporate SRE team, channeling those learnings into the continued development and enhancement of our platform, which will help organizations build more reliable software.”
