New Relic
Lead Backend Software Engineer – Browser
Portland, Oregon

The Browser Team is looking for a Lead Software Engineer to join us in building New Relic Browser, the industry leading solution for monitoring browser-based applications. We give our customers the means to identify issues in their web applications, providing actionable information, and clearly reporting when things are going well. Working closely with the team, you will stretch and grow your skills as you quickly iterate and deliver value to our customers.

What you might be working on:

  • Delivering and maintaining Java production services, some high-throughput, with an emphasis on scalability and fault tolerance
  • Ensuring that the evolving needs of our legacy services are met, and that the solutions we provide align with our future architectural vision
  • Exploring and proposing various possible solutions based on new or leveraged tools and libraries

What it’s like working 
on this team:

  • You’ll work with some of the smartest, nicest people you'll ever meet.
  • You’ll engage in challenging problems as a member of a highly collaborative and supportive team that discovers and builds solutions together.
  • You’ll frequently find yourself pairing, mobbing, and reviewing PRs to ensure quality and increase team ownership of the code.
  • You’ll be part of a team that is responsible for the full stack, where each engineer contributes to more than one area—the JavaScript agent, the Java ingest pipeline data services, the backend layer written in Node, the UI, and the infrastructure.
  • You’ll commit to a full-team effort to provide low-incident 24/7 services for our customers. To keep incidents low, we make a significant investment in early warning and self-healing systems.
  • You’ll ship incrementally and often, helping the team to maintain a constant flow of feedback on its work.
  • You’ll be part of a team that owns its process, and works continuously and collaboratively to improve it.

Skills that will help you succeed:

  • Excellent, modern Java programming skills
  • Ability to write, debug, and operate extremely high throughput and ultra low latency systems
  • Knowledge of modern message services (e.g. Kafka, Kinesis, Flink)
  • Experience with highly concurrent systems and the benefits and pitfalls of different concurrency primitives
  • Strong communication skills, expecting the best of yourself and others. You’d rather band together for a common cause than fly solo
  • Experience working in a SaaS environment at scale
  • Experience participating in and leading technical decision making within an engineering team
  • Foundation in systems knowledge, including some of:
    • Jenkins or other continuous integration/deployment tools
    • Service Oriented Architecture or microservices
    • AWS or other large network provisioning and architecture
    • Docker or other containerization solutions
    • Load balancing, storage, and clustering technologies
    • System-level monitoring and alerting tools such as Nagios

Nice to have:

  • Experience advancing a culture of reliability
  • Experience administering Linux systems
  • Familiarity with large databases and using a structured query language
