We are looking for an experienced software engineer and technical leader to join our architecture team. The members of this team work closely with engineering teams and leadership to provide architectural expertise, design mentorship and to improve visibility into cross-team technical issues.
If you’re ready for this job, you’ve spent years designing and building high-availability, high-scale, production systems and have plenty of front-line experience in the past, but now you’re more interested in how scalable systems work together than in optimizing that routine. You’ve made mistakes (probably lots of them) learned from them and have been a part of phenomenal successes.
At many companies, the Architects are gatekeepers and enforcers. They’re the people who tell you that the project violates the hosting policy or that you really shouldn’t design system to generate and capture an HTTP request for every customer page load - but its not our style here, we do things differently!
We expect a leader, not a gatekeeper. Sure, sometimes a leader has to say no, but that isn’t really the heart of the job. A leader should lead and paint the vision of where we’re going and make sure that everyone has what they need to get there. We hire awesome engineers. Help them see into the future, make decisions that support each-other and avoid mistakes that will be expensive to fix later, then those awesome engineers can deliver outstanding results.
We also expect our Architects to be strong stakeholders for our most technical product developments, working closely with their partners from Product Management and Design. It is only by finding the right balance between technology, market and experience that we’ll deliver the right thing.
Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.
