You will be working alongside Product and Design teams, and reporting to the Senior Engineering Manager in Customer Experience. You will decide how to build software that provides long-term scalability as Digital Ocean continues to grow our portfolio and customer base. You will also work within the broader engineering organization to improve the efficiency and performance of internal systems so that we can support our growing customer base.What You’ll Be Doing:
- Work with Staff Architect to design and implement solutions for internal support experiences.
- Collaborate with other teams within Digital Ocean to design solutions to internal business problems.
- Drive technical leadership on the internal tools team, including installing and leading enterprise best practices and driving higher levels of simplicity and elegance.
- Distill product requirements into functional user stories that can be developed, tested and deployed.
- Code internal services and tools for the scalable enterprise, leveraging designs from architecture teams and driving through testing and deployment.
- Mentor other developers and guide technical development paths.
- Take part in an on-call rotation every 4+ weeks.
- Language: Demonstrated ability to produce production-ready code in Go (or similar modern, performant language and stack) at a company of similar size and complexity. Familiarity with Ruby will be required for migration and maintenance conversations.
- Experience, energy and leadership to move this team to the next level of enterprise scalability and performance.
- A focus on customer satisfaction for the diverse internal community that depends on our tools.
- Deployments: Experience with containerized applications in Docker within a CI/CD environment using GOCD, Concourse, or similar platform.
- Design & architecture: Expert working within a microservice architecture, with knowledge of both asynchronous, event-driven processing, and synchronous GRPC/HTTP based requests.
- Domain experience: hands-on experience with IaaS- and PaaS-based solutions and an understanding of running software in Kubernetes clusters across load balancers.
- Operational expertise: Knowledge of and ability to use Kibana and Grafana for monitoring, alerting, and troubleshooting (or similar tools).
- Demonstrated ability to work independently in a remote-first culture.
- We value development. You will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. We maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development through formalized mentorship, LinkedIn Learning tracks, and other internal programs. We also provide all employees with reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
- We care about your physical, financial and mental well-being. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym stipend to support your physical health, and a commute or internet allowance to make your trips to your office or your desk easier. We offer generous parental leave with transition time built-in upon return to work. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match.
- We support our remote employee experience. While we have great office spaces in NYC and Cambridge, we’re very distributed—we use a number of communication tools to connect across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to visit our offices and meet their teams face-to-face at team offsites. We also have an annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the entire company at least once a year. We also allow employees to outfit their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
- We value diversity and inclusivity. We are an equal opportunity employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
