CircleCI · May 10th 2019
CircleCI seeks experienced software engineers with distributed systems experience who are excited to help us shape the future of our platform. We’re growing fast and continuously hiring folks to join our mission: enabling thousands of developers to do better work every single day.
You'll join a distributed, cross-functional team building the software that powers the CircleCI platform. You'll gain a deep understanding of our system and solve challenging problems at scale while delivering new capabilities to our customers. You'll write sustainable, resilient code as part of an engineering organization that values collaboration, trust, and learning.
You will have direct impact in the following ways:
Improving our systems-level tooling and programming to make our system more robust and reliable.
Fostering a culture of observability and monitoring; helping your team use operational data to improve the stability and performance of our systems.
Solving complex operational challenges in tandem with other teams from engineering, SRE, and support.
Collaborating with your team to evolve our architecture.
Writing sustainable, high-quality, high-performance code using Go.
Partnering with product owners to set the direction of our platform.
Do you love collaboration and teamwork? Are you eager to learn new things and help others learn, too?
Are you a strong communicator in both synchronous and asynchronous mediums? If so, here’s the additional experience we’re looking for:
Experience building and debugging distributed systems.
Proficiency in one or more of Go, C++, C, or Python.
An understanding of how to build observability into systems to ensure issues can easily be identified and fixed.
A focus on delivering high-quality code through strong testing practices.
We know there’s no such thing as an “ideal” candidate - we’re all a work in progress and are growing new skills and capabilities all the time.
CircleCI welcomes those who are enthusiastic about learning and evolving, so however you identify and whatever your background, if this looks like a role where you could do work that excites you, we hope you’ll apply.
