Senior Software Engineer (NRDB)

Engineering Portland, Oregon Chicago, Illinois Atlanta, Georgia Los Angeles, California Detroit, Michigan


Description

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.

We are excited to consider a remote engineer for this role in the Pacific Standard Time zone. If you are not in the PST zone you must be willing to work within our normal office hours. Remote team members will be expected to work out of their home office and must have successfully worked as a remote engineer in their current or past position.

Your Opportunity

The Data Platform group at New Relic builds the foundation for all of our products: data ingest, storage, and query. As an engineer working on NRDB, you’ll be contributing directly to the proprietary telemetry database technology at the core of our business.

We own our software from top to bottom and are directly responsible for its quality and reliability. Each member of the team shares our pager rotation and will occasionally be on-call to respond to system failures; so we prioritize work that keeps the lights on and the pager quiet, in addition to the work that powers all of our new products and streams of data.

If the idea of working on systems that process millions of messages per second and handle petabytes of data excites you, then you may be exactly what we're looking for!

Your Qualifications

How do you know if you're right for this job?

Must-have:

  • 3+ years experience in software development.
  • An understanding of Computer Science fundamentals is very important.
  • Our code is mostly written in Java. If you don’t know Java, that’s fine - but you should have experience with a couple other back-end programming languages (C++, C#).
  • Ability to go deep on the command-line and fix things when they’re broken.

Nice-to-have:

  • Proven experience developing and operating within a 24x7 SaaS business.
  • Experience in high-throughput software development.
  • Experience or interest in database implementation.
  • Experience working in the public cloud.
  • We’re also moving to Kubernetes for container orchestration. If you know K8s, we want to know you.
  • Experience on distributed teams would also help. We are part of a group that is distributed across North America and Europe. An ability to work well asynchronously and share your thoughts in writing will be a big asset.

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.
