PhonePe SRE Intern Resources, Guide and Experience

PhonePe intern requires knowledge in:

  • Linux Administration

  • Computer Networks

  • Operating Systems

  • Infrastructure topics

  • Scripting

  • Open Source tools etc

This blog will help you with the resources and some tips on how to prepare for it

Linux Administration

Linux Administration plays a vital role in the SRE position by providing the foundational expertise needed to manage and optimize complex server environments. SREs rely on Linux skills for incident response, performance optimization, security, automation, scalability, and effective collaboration within DevOps teams. Proficiency in Linux administration is essential for maintaining reliable and high-performing systems in the SRE role.

Infrastructure topics

Infrastructure topics are essential in the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) role as they encompass the foundational components and technologies that underpin modern systems. SREs focus on designing, deploying, and maintaining reliable and scalable infrastructures.


There are many topics involved in this process. From cloud to open source tools. But, to get started, you can watch some videos in the following playlist Youtube-Kunal-Kushwaha-Devops-Bootcamp


Scripting is a crucial skill in the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) role, enabling SREs to automate tasks, streamline processes, and enhance system reliability. With scripting languages like Python, Bash, or PowerShell, SREs can create custom tools, automate routine operations, deploy configurations consistently, and respond swiftly to incidents.
