New Relic is looking for a remote senior full-stack engineer to join our billing team. As part of this team, you'll be helping to design, code, and, of course, monitor it all with New Relic!

This position is perfect for someone who loves to work with large amounts of data, working both in back-end services and occasionally the front end. It is particularly well suited for a growth-minded engineer who is excited to learn new technologies and practices in a business-critical part of the company. There will be an on-call rotation with a focus on sustainability, and, when issues arise, we will prioritize getting them fixed right away. We'll also be flexible about swapping weeks because we know life is what happens outside of work.

What You'll Work On

  • Design, implement, observe and scale high visibility microservices that consume and annotate usage data from our customers
  • Understand and advance the customer billing domain, with a particular focus on serving the needs of a wide array of internal partners
  • Build user-friendly interfaces for customers and internal partners to view billing data and to handle customer account information
  • Solve complex use cases requiring close collaboration with product design, management, and your tight-knit engineering team

What You'll Do

  • Use agile practices to ship software incrementally with frequent customer feedback
  • Take turns as “sprint lead” to ensure commitments are met
  • Work closely with product management, technical support, and design teams to make sure the right features are built to help our customers understand and handle their digital business

Your Qualifications


  • 4+ years of production-level experience in Java or another strong compiled language, and are interested in owning services that are diverse in domain and implementation
  • Experience working in a highly collaborative environment with confidence to get things done
  • Ability to work independently to implement clean, consistent code solutions
  • Flexibility in determining how to achieve the business goals without compromising technical quality
  • Understand the importance of maintaining and supporting software in production


  • 2+ years working with Kafka or another streaming tool
  • React (or similar UI framework) experience
  • Experience in Kotlin
  • Experience working on high transparency projects

Please note, this position is not eligible for visa sponsorship.
