Senior Software Engineer- Open Source Ruby Team (open to rem

Company: New Relic
Location: Austin
Posted on: February 23, 2021

Job Description:

Senior Software Engineer- Open Source Ruby Team (open to remote) Engineering Portland, Oregon New York, New York Chicago, Illinois Washington, D.C., United States Houston, Texas Los Angeles, California Atlanta, Georgia Detroit, Michigan Baltimore, Maryland Raleigh, North Carolina Sacramento, California St. Paul, Minnesota San Jose, California Seattle , Washington Denver, Colorado Salt Lake City, Utah Arlington, Virginia Boston, Massachusetts Austin, Texas San Francisco, California Phoenix, Arizona Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this role. The Ruby agent recently open-sourced our codebase. We are looking for an enthusiastic senior software engineer who is excited about open-source software, to help us build lightweight, dependable software that our customers trust enough to put into their production applications. We're a small, close-knit team. We are optimistic, and we continue to strive to be better. We work together and are always learning. We are excited to consider a remote engineer for this role in the Pacific Standard Time zone. If you are not in the PST zone, you must be willing to work within our normal office hours. Remote team members will be expected to work out of their home office and must have successfully worked remotely before. Our code runs inside hundreds of thousands of our customers' applications. While we have no control over the hosts and environments our agent runs in, our customers depend on it being 100% reliable and having minimal performance impact. You will be at the heart of New Relic's best-in-class APM solution, with a focus on our open source Ruby projects. Engaging the community to influence direction and drive innovation, your contributions to our lightweight and dependable data collection software [https://github.com/newrelic/newrelic-ruby-agent] will directly impact our mission. What You'll Do

While our charter is well-defined and fairly narrow, we still have quite a diversity of tasks. Some of the things you'd be doing with us:

  • Write efficient Ruby. Customers run our code in their production systems. In order to keep our footprint light, we are on the lookout for unnecessary object allocations and overly complex code.
  • Read through source code for popular libraries, find out how they work, and find the best places to hook our instrumentation code into them.
  • Write tests. With our comprehensive test suite, we make sure everything we ship is well tested. We go to great lengths to make sure each release is thoroughly tested and dependable.
  • Support our agent. We build our agent so customers can get a better insight into their applications. We take support rotations where we help customers solve issues and get the most of the agent. We come away from these rotations with ideas of how we can improve our agent to serve our customers better.
  • 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.
  • Attention to detail: We do excellent work every time, and help each other strive for this excellence.
  • Ruby expertise: We write Ruby code that metaprograms our customers' Ruby code, and which has to run on multiple versions of Ruby and JRuby.
  • Collaboration: We work closely together and believe in the power of pairing. It's a great way of sharing information and ensuring quality. And it's more fun!
  • 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. Your Qualifications

    Must-have:
    • 5+ years experience building and supporting Ruby applications in a full-stack capacity
    • Expertise with Ruby, Ruby on Rails, or any other Ruby-based framework.
    • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience required
    • Experience with unit tests and integration tests
    • Some level of experience with databases Nice-to-have:
      • A track record learning new technologies, collaborating and chipping in to open source projects
      • Familiar with continuous integration and deployment
      • Strong interpersonal skills that will position you as a mentor for others on the team.
      • Good organizational skills
      • Experience developing and operating within a SaaS business Not Sure If This Is You? We are particularly interested in having a diverse team, with a broad set of skills and viewpoints. If this seems like you, but you're not sure if you qualify, apply anyway! We'll carefully consider every applicant that takes the time to apply for this specific position. We'll either move forward with you, find other teams that might be a better match, keep in touch for later opportunities, or thank you for your time. When you apply, be sure to include a cover letter telling us what interests you about this position and why you think it would be a good fit for you. Cover letters matter to us - we really read them Our Office or Your Office

        You will be working with engineers and leaders distributed throughout the world, concentrated around our major offices in Portland, San Francisco, Phoenix, Barcelona, and Tel Aviv. You are welcome to work in one of Our U.S. offices or work from your home office in the U.S., during our core hours. Our global headquarters for research and development is in the center of downtown Portland, situated in the thriving tech community of the Pacific Northwest. We enjoy easy multi-modal commute access and a plethora of good eats and exceptional coffee.
