Lead Java Software Engineer - Remote
We are excited to consider a remote engineer! Remote team members will be expected to work out of their home office.
Are you tired of working 60, 80, or 100+ hours a week for little to no recognition? Does work-life balance for your current employer mean that you devote most of your life to them and you get the balance of what's left? At New Relic, we take this balance very seriously. Team members generally work 40-45 hours per week, solving interesting challenges in a team environment where efficiency and skill are rewarded via promotions and quarterly, peer-nominated rewards programs.
If this sounds appealing to you, we are looking for an experienced full-stack software engineer and technical leader to join our Synthetics team. The members of this engineering team design, develop, and operate the Synthetics product features of the New Relic suite.
You’re ready for this position if you’ve spent years engineering high-throughput, highly-available production systems that scale easily. You've had plenty of front-line experience in the past but now you’re more interested in how complex systems work together to deliver value to our customers. You’ve made mistakes (probably lots of them) and learned from them. You’ve also been a part of great successes where you've kept the customer front-and-center in your designs.
What You’ll Do
Our senior engineers guide the design, construction/development, documentation, maintenance, and scale of our high performance back-end streaming, scheduling, and job runner Synthetics application systems as well as the customer-facing UI and API's and accompanying middleware (we are a full-stack team!). They are hands on in the code and utilize their knowledge and skills to help the team bake automation, quality, reliability, scalability, and simplicity into everything we do. We hire excellent engineers and you will mentor them to develop maintainable systems that are easy to operate. They lead by example, and work closely with engineering management, product management, technical support, and design to build the right features to ensure our customers understand their digital business.
We have a globally distributed development organization with teams spanning a nine-hour swath of timezones, so we value the ability to communicate in written form, ranging from Slack to team notes.
- 7+ years of technical leadership with robust engineering teams using modern object-oriented programming languages such as Java, C#, or C++.
- 3+ years in-depth Java development experience (e.g. knowledge of how the GC works, multi-threading, etc.)
- Experience with distributed messaging systems such as Kafka
- Experience with relational data stores such as PostgreSQL
- Intimate knowledge of full-stack software engineering principles
- Experience building and operating highly-scalable distributed systems that are fault-tolerant
- Experience designing for and deploying applications to common cloud provider infrastructure such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure
- Collaborative and able to successfully navigate multi-functional teams within the organization
- Experience with Selenium or Puppeteer
- Experience with AWS EC2, SQS, S3, Redis, ElasticSearch, and/or Amazon KMS
- Experience with Git source control and GitHub Enterprise
- Familiarity with Kanban agile methodology
- Experience on a software product team
