The Opportunity

At Peloton, we work across an incredible range of technology domains: hardware, firmware, web, mobile, backend, data, messaging, content, streaming, and--or course--machine learning. We get to apply these to create a platform of products loved by millions of customers all over the world. Peloton's Platform organization provides the foundation and guiding hand that enables all of the engineering teams at Peloton to build technology faster and scale safely with minimal effort. We are seeking a Senior Principal Engineer to guide the evolution of our technology as we scale every part of our business.

Reporting to the VP of Platform, you will serve as the chief architect for Peloton. This is not a whiteboard role, but a hands-on engineer-as-leader who will team with the most senior engineers and engineering leaders across Peloton to help us navigate some big questions. Here are just a few of the challenges you will help us with in your first year: What is the best architecture to move our monolith to unlock parallelism without resulting in toxic fragmentation? What should be included in our developer frameworks to strike the right balance between consistency and innovation? How do we optimize performance end-to-end, from device to backend and data, across multiple product lines and geographies? How do we test at scale, from hardware and streamed content to backend systems, in a hyper-growth environment? When should we build vs buy to optimize time-to-market and  best-in-class experience. How do we create safeguards against vendor lock-in? Additional challenges will be more meta questions, such as: how do we govern architectural direction and decisions across such a multi-disciplined company? Where do we make the right decisions to balance local autonomy and consistency? What tools do we bring to the table for design and decision-making (ADRs, Tech Radars, Architecture Councils, SIGs, etc.)?

This role is a "first-ever" engineering opportunity at Peloton. You will help us evolve not only our technology but also the practice of engineering. Your impact will be widely visible, across Peloton and through our involvement in the tech industry.
