We are interviewing and onboarding 100% virtually at this time. PagerDuty is focused on inclusion and employee well-being by building a culture that isn’t location specific and gives equal opportunity to everyone—regardless of where you are working. Unless your job requirements make it necessary to be in a company office, you may choose to work in-office, remotely, or hybrid.

Why We Need You

As a Staff/Principal Software Engineer on our Scheduling and Escalation team, you’ll be part of a fast-moving, high-performing, and innovative team tackling some of the most interesting problems in the company. You'll be modernizing the core scheduling capabilities in the PagerDuty application, creating flexibility for the use cases that not only fit the DevOps model but also centralized Ops, customer success, etc. Come help create scalable data structures and integrations that will satisfy the needs of our largest enterprise customers. Solve for what’s next and help us build the future of PagerDuty!

How You Contribute to Our Vision:  Key Responsibilities
  • Think long term and partner with our Co-Founder, Platform GM and our peers in product management to build out a long term vision for the PagerDuty Scheduling and Escalation Platform.
  • Design and architect the set of flexible platform building blocks that will become the PagerDuty Platform.
  • Work backward from our multi-year vision and create a plan for the PagerDuty Platform that we can execute in multiple phases and that will deliver value to customers not just in the long term, but also in the medium and short term.
  • Create and implement a plan that will evolve our existing architecture, micro-services, and larger services into this new platform design, over the course of multiple milestones. To use a tried and true analogy, this will be like replacing the engine of the plane while mid-flight.
  • Collaborate closely across many different product development teams to validate and pressure test our new platform architecture, design, APIs, and user experience.
  • Be a coach and mentor to engineers of all experience levels. You’ve been a technical leader and really enjoy mentoring and leading projects and driving technical excellence within the team.
  • With 12,000+ global customers and growing, you’ll be solving really interesting technical challenges while helping to scale our product to keep up with demand.
Skills and Attributes
  • You have extensive experience re-architecting a complex product and breaking a monolith up into multiple services / micro-services. You know the best practices of undertaking such initiatives as well as the pitfalls to avoid (and have the scars to prove it).
  • You are empathetic - you can clearly communicate your thoughts and opinions to others and facilitate these technical discussions to a successful outcome.
  • You do good work and lots of it; the drive to deliver is just a part of you.
  • You have a good understanding of the full web service architecture/technologies (e.g. CDN, request headers, API design, service load balance/routing, disaster recovery).
  • You have a strong passion for developing elegant and well-designed frameworks.
  • You have excellent communication and collaboration skills.
  • You can prioritize and execute multiple tasks in a highly dynamic environment with a results-oriented mindset.
Minimum Requirements

  • You have strong experience in designing and building REST APIs.
  • Experience in some or all of the following: Elixir, Ruby on Rails, Kafka, React.
  • Experience with agile (scrum, kanban, lean) delivery methodologies.
  • Public cloud engineering on AWS (preferred), Azure, or GCP platforms.
Preferred Qualifications
  • You’ve played a key role or contributing role on architecting or building a developer platform.
  • You have experience with tools that ensure your high-quality work makes a smooth, automated, repeatable transition from your machine to our staging and production environments.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at PagerDuty two days after graduation, when I was unsure of what I really wanted to do. My six year tenure has resulted in a role change each year, starting as a temporary Recruiting Coordinator to now, as a Majors Account Executive where I enjoy working with some of our most strategic customers.
