Your Opportunity

Please note that Visa Sponsorship is not available for this position.

New Relic recently open-sourced all our agent’s software! It was a significant milestone for all of us. If you are someone who thrives in an open-source environment and understands how .NET assemblies work behind the scenes, we’d love to hear from you. At New Relic, we help people build better software. Our product, The .NET Agent, observes interactions between applications and the .NET framework and makes it visible to our customers to help with the performance and reliability of their product.

You will be at the heart of New Relic’s best-in-class APM solution, with a focus on our open source .NET projects. Engaging the community to influence the direction and drive innovation, your contributions to our lightweight and dependable data collection software [https://github.com/newrelic/newrelic-dotnet-agent] will directly impact our mission.

What You'll Do

  • Deliver high-quality performant software, with an emphasis on scalability and reliability.
  • Work with customers to help them improve their applications.
  • Ensure that the evolving needs of our software are met
  • Ensure that our software implementation fits with our architectural vision.
  • Collaborate with your team, external contributors, and others to help solve problems.
  • Reduce the complexity of projects, services, and processes.
  • Multiply the effectiveness of others through providing technical guidance, pull requests, and mentoring others.

Team Traits

  • Execution:
  • We are curious! We seek beyond the surface of the technologies we use and need to understand the internals.
  • We deliver value incrementally. We get satisfaction building tools that help developers get stuff done.
  • We ship new features iteratively, and we make trade-offs and take calculated risks
  • Accountability: We never say something is “not our problem”. If it’s our customer’s problem, it is our problem, too. We never drop the ball.
  • .NET expertise: We write instrumentation to help our customers observe their complex systems. We are sensitive to the usage of resources and the performance of our codebase. We have the opportunity to maximize our knowledge of the .NET Framework, Azure, IIS, MVC, Entity Framework, MSMQ, WCF, and async.
  • Collaboration: We work closely together and believe in the power of pairing. We understand there is a balance between individual heads down and pairing.
  • Strong Communication: Being an autonomous team in a larger organization, with all teams working well together, requires strong communication. We write proposals, specs, and retrospectives. We give talks, and we demo the work we are doing.
  • “Second Job”: Our “first job” is the job we were hired for (all of the above). Our “second job” is helping those around us to succeed at their jobs. Balancing first and second jobs make us smarter, more effective, and happier. We share what we know.
  • Experience with systems programming, CLR, and .NET internals
  • Understanding of concurrency and multi-threaded development
  • Familiarity with software design patterns, principles, and practices
  • Knowledge of C#, .NET, and the Microsoft environment
  • Continuous integration and deployment experience
