Job description

Your opportunity:

New Relic is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Distributed Tracing team. As part of our team you will design, implement, and maintain back-end for our cutting edge tracing product and its migration to the cloud.

Distributed applications built on microservices and serverless technologies require special observability tooling to help developers monitor performance, tackle problems, and understand how their applications behave in complex environments.

We are seeking someone who has a track record of solving difficult problems, making intelligent decisions, reviewing code meticulously, has outstanding verbal and written communication skills, embodies ownership and accountability, mentoring others, and is excited to join our team that built New Relic’s Distributed Tracing tools to give our customers unrivaled insight into their modern distributed application stacks!

We are excited to consider a US-based remote engineer for this role. Remote team members will work out of their home office and should have successfully worked remotely in the past

What you’ll do:

  • Our ideal candidate is someone who can help strengthen our team with their passion for building outstanding software solutions. You will have the opportunity to:
  • Deliver, optimize and scale high throughput, production quality code using the latest stream processing technologies.
  • Collaborate with product management, design, research, architect, technical support and other engineers on solutions that are empathetic to customer problems while being pragmatic about business value.
  • Prototype and drive new feature development by partnering with internal users, customers, and engineering teams at New Relic.
  • Work with a DevOps approach - we build and maintain the team's software, including taking turns being on-call, and tailoring our on-call alert policies to prevent pager-fatigue

Your qualifications:

  • 4+ years of software programming experience in Java, Kotlin or a modern object oriented language.
  • A deep familiarity with building and operating systems on the JVM.
  • Experience having developed and shipped highly reliable, high-throughput backend services
  • Have a keen eye for quality, write unit tests and consider automated testing as appropriate

Nice to have:

  • BS degree in Computer Science, related technical field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Solid foundation in algorithms, data structures, concurrency, and software design.
  • Strong analytical and debugging skills.
  • Experience with any of the following: Docker, Kafka, Java, Kotlin, stream processing, or GraphQL APIs.
  • Experience using distributed tracing tools, working in a microservices environment.
  • Front end development experience.
  • Open source contributions.
  • Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.
  • Our Office or Your Office

You will be working with engineers and leaders distributed throughout the world, concentrated around our major offices in Portland, San Francisco, Phoenix, Barcelona, and Tel Aviv. You are welcome to work in one of Our U.S. offices or work from your home office in the U.S., on our core hours. Our global headquarters for research and development is in the center of downtown Portland, situated in the thriving tech community of the Pacific Northwest. We enjoy easy multi-modal commute access and a plethora of good eats and exceptional coffee.
