New York Posted on Software Engineer

Have you ever wondered what happens inside the cloud?

Based in New York, DigitalOcean is a dynamic, high-growth technology company that serves a robust and passionate community of developers, teams, and businesses around the world. We believe that today’s entrepreneurs are changing the world through software. Our mission is to empower these entrepreneurs by bringing modern app development within reach for any developer, anywhere in the world.

We want people who are passionate about engineering easy-to-use tools that enable internal teams to manage customer resources and interactions.

We are looking for a Senior Engineer experienced with mission-critical full-stack applications to help with the continued growth of the DigitalOcean cloud. Reporting to the Senior Manager in our Customer Experience Engineering org, you will maintain and transform a critical, full-stack, monolith system into modern, highly available, micro-services, and front ends.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Scale and modernize a mission-critical Ruby system which is used throughout the company
  • Engineer new solutions to business problems by creating Go services and Javascript front ends
  • Create internal services that are performant and highly reliable
  • Contribute to building and maturing engineering practices
  • Take part in an on-call rotation every 3 to 4 weeks

What We’ll Expect From You:

  • Language: Demonstrated ability to produce production-ready code in either Ruby or Go (or similar modern, performant language and stack) at a company of similar size and complexity. Familiarity with Javascript is a plus.
  • 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.
  • Operational expertise: Knowledge of and ability to use Kibana and Grafana for monitoring, alerting, and troubleshooting (or similar tools).
  • Salesforce administration and integration experience is nice to have.
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently in a remote-first culture.

Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:

  • We have amazing people. We can promise you will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We work hard but we always have fun doing it. We care deeply about each other and take our “no jerks” rule very seriously.
  • We value development. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. That means we maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development.  You’ll need to be great to get hired here and we promise you’ll get even better.
  • We care about you. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym reimbursement to support your physical health, and a monthly commute allowance to make your trips to and from work easier.
  • We invest in your future. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match. We also provide all employees with Kindles and reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
  • We want you to love where you work. We have great office spaces located in the heart of SoHo NYC and Cambridge and offer daily catered lunches to keep your hunger at bay. We’re also very remote-friendly—we use Slack to communicate across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to onboard in-office and take an all-expenses paid trip to our annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the team at least once a year. We also allow employees to customize 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.
