CircleCI seeks a Software Engineer who is eager to build a product that empowers thousands of developers to ship quality code faster, every single day. In this role, you will contribute to the Server team within our Platform Engineering group, working adjacent to SRE and Security teams. This team is charged with supporting, developing, maintaining, and improving our on premise product. 

As a Software Engineer on the Server team, you will work alongside development, operations, marketing, and sales to maintain product integrity and deliver new functionality. You will manage escalations, maintain and extend the platform, add tooling for observability, as well as participate in agile team processes.

This crucial position affords the right candidate many interesting and challenging opportunities to play a key role in the growth and maturity of the team. The engineer stepping into this role will have a significant impact on the stability and functionality of our on premise product.

What you'll do:
  • Manage engineering escalations from support for our on premise customers.
  • Design and build new features.
  • Write sustainable, testable, high-quality, high-performance code.
  • Participating in and contributing to the improvement of rotating on-call duties, including incident management.
  • Partner with members of a cross-functional team and other stakeholders to set the direction of our platform and product: learn about our business problems, explore solutions, weigh design tradeoffs, create effective user stories, and prioritize them to deliver maximum value.
What we're looking for:
  • Experience building and debugging distributed systems in production environments.
  • Understanding of Docker or evolving container management platforms like Kubernetes or Mesos
  • Experience with cloud services and virtualization, e.g. AWS, GCP, etc.
  • Experience managing container-based architectures, including orchestration, service-discovery, monitoring, and debugging
  • You write code that’s easily readable, testable, and maintainable.
  • You’re comfortable using functional programming paradigms. (We use Clojure, but it’s fine if you haven’t yet.)
  • You’re good at managing the ambiguity of a small, rapidly-growing company: adjusting to changing priorities, making conscious tradeoffs when guidance is limited and information is incomplete, and instituting best practices from scratch when needed. 
We’re particularly interested in these habits and tendencies:
  • You care deeply about the experience and satisfaction of users (internal and external)
  • You work transparently and collaboratively within a distributed team.
  • You favor regular, incremental delivery of value over perfection.
  • You strive for continuous learning and improvement for yourself and your team.
