What we are looking for:

Our best engineers are collaborative and selfless.  They enjoy writing code but they prioritize documenting and mentoring. They leave code cleaner than when they found it but don’t insist on particular patterns. They optimize for simplicity and readability. They are involved in the full lifecycle of software development: understanding the requirements, designing the solution, writing the code, testing the implementation, and deploying it to production. They are fully engaged in the problem domain.

What you will do:

As a delivery engineer, you will build software that is the closest to the customer. You must care that the interfaces you build are reliable, responsive, simple, and predictable. Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Build, maintain, and document customer-facing APIs
  • Build, maintain, and document event-driven applications that consume streaming data
  • Collaborate with the product team as well as cyber threat, fraud, and security experts to understand the problems that customers want to solve
  • Collaborate with the data and operations teams to design infrastructure that supports the APIs
  • Identify opportunities for automation and drive process improvements

Technologies you will work with:

The core responsibility of a delivery engineer is to build and maintain well-running APIs. This means you must work with:

  • API frameworks like OpenAPI, Apiary, and API Blueprint
  • Python web frameworks like Flask and Django
  • Search databases like Elasticsearch, Solr, Lucene
  • Monitoring tools like ElasticAPM, Prometheus, and Grafana

Our developers succeed when they know how their work fits in within the entire infrastructure. They integrate their work with the data team’s or operation team’s stack.  Therefore, engineers on all of our teams have a chance to work with a varied list of technologies, like:

  • Streaming pipelines using tools like Kafka, AWS MSK, and Google PubSub
  • Cloud providers like AWS and GCP
  • Containers like Docker and rkt
  • Container orchestrators like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, and Mesos
  • Configuration management and IaC tools like Ansible, Puppet, Chef, and Terraform

What you will bring:

  • 5+ years experience as a software engineer
  • Proficiency in Python

What else would be great:

  • Experience with other programming languages like Scala, Golang, and Javascript 

What we will provide:

Compensation will be commensurate with experience, ability, and role responsibilities. Additional perks include health and welfare benefits, 401K, commuter benefits, a well-stocked kitchen, cool cultural initiatives and employee events.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
