You possess strong software engineering and Java development fundamentals. You are unafraid to dig into unknown codebases to unravel unexpected behaviors. You value reliability, testability, and maintainability. You're proud of the code you write, but you're also pragmatic and believe in iteration. You know when it is time to refactor, and when it's time to ship.
About the Position
The job of a Staff Engineer at Airship is to focus on designing systems for scale and reliability while thinking about the future of Airship’s stack and product direction. We provide low latency services that process a stream of events from both apps/web/mobile wallet/email/sms and internal services. We also support large analytical workloads, querying across billions of events and Terabytes of data.
Our backend infrastructure is built on the Google Cloud Platform.
Our backend infrastructure is primarily Java.
Our platform uses microservices that talk to SQL and NoSQL databases and handle an immense load.
You'll be involved in schema design, ownership of data semantics, and a lot of squinting at server metrics trying to puzzle out why database write latency spiked in the 99th percentile and moved the emphasis in “near-real-time” from “real” to “near.”
Interfacing with product teams to ensure correct design and implementation.
We have remote employees in engineering spread over many cities in the US and encourage people outside of Portland to apply. Quarterly travel to our home office in Portland, OR is preferred but negotiable.
