Software Engineer - Performance

This role drives our  understanding of system performance in all its aspects, including application of USE method to our own services, vendor services, and competitor services. This position also works to identify and understand distributed system correctness using Jepson-like approaches, including lineage-driven fault injection.

You have

A love of systems engineering, APIs, and constrained interface surface area. You’ ve read the Google SRE book and have the background to argue the details of it. You laugh and cringe at Jepsen tests, subject your own systems to similar tests, and constantly seek ways to assure your systems meet their obligations while improving performance.

You want

To automate infrastructure behind customer facing APIs with high availability and exceedingly minimal downtime. To build systems that look elegant and reliable on the outside, even as they deal with the complexities of rigorous business logic and user permissions, and hide hardware failures on the inside. To work in Go and other tools as necessary to build stuff. To participate and thrive in a delivery-oriented, goal-centric culture.

We offer

An opportunity to build a greenfield cloud, and scale it to meet the needs of the world’ s largest cloud consumers. A highly distributed, remote-friendly team (US preferred, but we can work with candidates up to 9 hours offset from US Pacific time). An opportunity to shape product and business strategy and grow into new roles as the organization grows.
