Because you belong at Segment

The Who, What, Where and Why

At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. We make this easy with a single platform that collects, stores, filters, transforms, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. Our goal is to make it easy to understand, extract value, and protect the integrity of data. We are creating a world where engineers spend their time working on their core product, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to take over the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market.

We’re looking for someone to help shape the long term vision of the integrations platform. This group works on high-volume distributed systems powering our connections product, including job orchestration via centrifuge, and custom sources and destinations with the functions runtime. As part of the functions team, you’ll work directly on a runtime for untrusted code, enabling customers and internal builders alike to customize event processing at ingress, egress, and in between.

Who?

  • 8+ years experience writing production-grade code in a modern programming language
  • A proven track record of operating reliable, scalable, secure, cost-effective infrastructure
  • ​​Strong theoretical fundamentals and hands-on experience designing and implementing highly available, performant fault-tolerant distributed systems. You lean towards eventual consistency.
  • ​​Solid grasp of Linux systems and networking concepts.
  • Well-versed in concurrent programming.
  • ​​Experience maintaining and operating always-on cloud services.
  • You're focused, driven, and can get challenging projects across the finish line.
  • You're empathetic, patient, and love to help your teammates grow.
  • You have experience running services in production and take software engineering practices seriously. You write meaningful tests and understand the value of great logging, proper monitoring, and error tracking.
  • You love designing and shipping new products as much as iterating on existing ones.
  • You value teamwork and agree with the statement that “a team is a group of people who own each others’ decisions”.
  • AWS and kubernetes experience a bonus.

What?
