CloudHealth - Senior Staff Engineer - Platform

| Greater Boston Area

CloudHealth by VMware is the global market leader in Cloud Service Management, and the most trusted software platform used to accelerate business transformation in the cloud. We are searching for dedicated and versatile engineers, who are passionate about working in a company whose culture is fanatical about innovation and fixated on delivering software products that solve our customers’ most challenging business needs. As a contributor in our Engineering/product organization, you’ll have the opportunity to make a significant and direct impact on our platform and products, in addition to solving some of the most complex challenges in cloud computing.

Our microservices engineering team is responsible for the architecture, design, and implementation of common services for our new platform.  The CloudHealth platform manages data from multiple cloud providers in support of our 4,000+ customers. Our microservices team is developing a scalable platform to be consumed by our customers, partners, integrators, and CloudHealth feature engineering teams.

This team is leveraging the latest technologies to build reusable core services and a data pipeline that must be secure, scalable, reliable, available, and performant. If you are great at solving scale and resiliency problems in a rapidly expanding 24/7 SaaS environment and thrive on the challenges of developing and deploying microservices, this is the team for you.   

You Will:

  • Collaborate with the Engineering Leadership, Product Management, Architects, and existing engineering teams to design, develop, and publish software supporting a highly available, fault-tolerant SaaS platform.

  • Produce high quality and well-documented code in an automated CI/CD and Test environment, taking full ownership of your features from inception to deployment and beyond.

  • Advocate, encourage and influence innovation by being an effective technical leader.

  • Work in multi-functional agile teams to regularly experiment, iterate, and deliver on new product objectives with end-to-end responsibility for your team’s goals as well as working across teams when needed.

Preferred Skills:

  • A sense of humor (Non-negotiable). We work too hard to not have fun and celebrate individual/team/company accomplishments.

  • 10+ years of commercial software development experience.

  • 1+ year building or using cloud services in a production environment.

  • An understanding of team and individual goals and are motivated to accomplish them.

  • Developing multi-tenant SaaS Applications with Java/Scala/Ruby.

  • Knowledge of cloud-based security, metrics, logging, or data storage services.

  • Developing software using a microservices architecture, with knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes, in leading cloud environments (AWS, Azure, GCP).

  • Solving complex technical problems that involve researching multiple solutions, rapid prototyping, and then making the appropriate trade-offs.

We are already interested but would love experience with:

  • Development and operational experience with Kafka and ElasticSearch

  • Knowledge of creating and accessing GraphQL API interfaces

  • Data Pipeline architecture and technologies including cloud-based data storage and query systems (we use AWS Athena and Spark to access parquet files on S3)

An Insider's view of CloudHealth by VMware

What are some social events your company does?

CHT offers a lot of social events throughout the year! Some of the more popular events are the Happy Hours we run usually every month or so. Every once in a while, we add in something extra to them as well. For example, one Happy Hour doubled as a Trivia Night and last month we had karaoke, which ended up being a huge hit.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Building the best platform to solve our customers’ challenges is truly a team effort. Everyone at CloudHealth has a unique perspective on how we deliver value to our customers, so it’s always important for engineering to collaborate with other teams.

Devin Nguyen

Software Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I first joined CloudHealth, I traveled the world as a Solution Architect to learn what our customers need. Now I’m able to apply that knowledge to our platform’s development as a Product Owner. As CloudHealth grows, I will directly influence our product’s future while taking my career in a new and exciting direction.

Chris Jacob

Product Owner

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Equally as important to being accessible is being approachable. Putting CHT employees’ needs before our own and having the understanding that the teams success and career progression is a direct reflection of the work and enablement we provide. Being accessible to everyone at all levels creates the synergy we need to be successful.

Ryan Policella

Director of Sales Development

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The great thing about CloudHealth is knowing that you are working with an ambitious and hard working group of passionate people who are always willing to collaborate and help one another with the challenges we encounter every day. The atmosphere at the office is easy going but fast paced. We work hard and still know how to have fun.
